(ESPN.com) – River will visit Newell’s in Rosario this Wednesday, starting at 9 pm, for the 11th date of the Professional Soccer League. The match will be played at the Marcelo Bielsa stadium, with the arbitration of Pablo Echavarría.
The Millionaires arrive with 18 points, to five of the Lanús and Talleres leaders, who have already won their respective matches. And in case of winning, they will remain as the only third, two points from the top
Newell’s, meanwhile, comes from the bottom of the table, with 12 units, and adds five games without victories.
River will arrive toned because he will recover several footballers, after the absence he suffered from the summons to the South American Qualifying matches.
In this way, Marcelo Gallardo will have Franco Armani, Paulo Díaz, Héctor David Martínez, Robert Rojas and Julián Alvarez.
But also, the good news for DT is the recovery of Matías Suárez and Fabricio Angileri, who recovered from their respective injuries.
The doubt of the Doll goes through the system to be used, since it could come out with a line of three or a line of four; anyway, the mentioned comebacks plus the players that were already available, such as Enzo Pérez, De la Cruz, Carrascal and Brian Romero, among others, will present a River strengthened beyond the tactical system.
Anyway, despite the losses, in the last two presentations the millionaire team added four of the six points disputed.
On Newell’s side, the premise of Fernando Gamboa’s team is to return to victory after two draws and three defeats. The last triumph was for the fifth date, with a 1-0 victory against Platense.
As for the training for this Wednesday, the DT would choose to maintain the same 11 that comes from drawing 1 to 1 against Colón on the last day.
