Marcelo Gallardo could repeat the River Plate team against Independiente or, he would only make one change, for the tenth date of the League Tournament.
The defense would continue as is the one that defeated Sarmiento last Monday, because according to Juan Balbi in ESPN Soccer 12, Fabrizio Angileri and Jonatan Maidana would not be recovered from individual tears for next Sunday. In addition, Franco Armani and Julián Álvarez, like Paulo Díaz, Héctor Martínez, Robert Rojas are affected by the National Teams of Argentina, Chile and Paraguay.
Meanwhile, in the midfield Nicolás De la Cruz improves, but he would not be available because Uruguay could summon him for the triple date of South American Qualifiers.
The only variant that could occur and it would be great news for Gallardo is that Matías Suárez, this Wednesday continued to work differently, but confirmed to Gustavo Yarroch, ESPN Fútbol 90 chronicler, that he no longer has fluid in his right knee, where he suffered a synovitis and hopes to be able to be for the classic. In that case, you could enter through Federico Girotti.
In this way, the initial formation of the Millionaire would be: Enrique Bologna; Alex Vigo, Felipe Peña, Enzo Pérez, Bruno Zuculini, Milton Casco; Agustín Palavecino, Enzo Fernández, Jorge Carrascal; Federico Girotti or Matias Suárez and Cristian Romero.
River Plate will host Independiente on Sunday from 9:15 p.m. at the Monumental stadium.
