(ESPN.com) – River will be presented this Sunday from 6 pm, at the Monumental, against Colón de Santa Fe, for the first date of the Professional Football League. The party will be led by Darío Herrera.
It will be a demanding presentation for Marcelo Gallardo’s team, as he will face the last Argentine soccer champion.
Los Sabaleros have been consecrated by the hand of Eduardo Domínguez after beating Racing 3-0 in the final.
River arrives with its head set on what will be next Wednesday’s rematch against Argentinos Juniors, for the return of the knockout stages of the Copa Libertadores. In the first leg, they matched Núñez 1 to 1.
Anyway, Gallardo will put up a team with many starters. Among them were Franco Armani, Milton Casco, Paulo Díaz, Fabricio Angileri and Agustín Palavecino.
Javier Pinola, Enzo Fernández, Bruno Zuculini, José Paradela, Federico Girotti and Agustín Fontana would also enter from the start.
They will not be from the start, in relation to the game against the Bug of the week, Matías Suárez, Braian Romero, Enzo Pérez and Nicolás de la Cruz, among others.
On the side of Colón, who had the bad news of having 13 positive cases of Covid 19, at least he will be able to recover some of those footballers, since the new tests yielded negative results and the DT will be able to add them.
They are Facundo Garcés, Federico Lértora, Alexis Castro, Nicolás Leguizamón, Gonzalo Piovi and Wilson Morelo, who traveled with the rest of the squad.
In an austere passing market, Sabalero lost one of his figures, Pulga Rodríguez, who arranged with Gimnasia de La Plata.
The last match that had them face to face was for the ninth date of the Professional League Cup, the last tournament, and River won 3 to 2.
