(ESPN.com) – River will visit Central Córdoba in Santiago del Estero this Saturday, on the 13th date of the Professional Football League, with the hope of reaching the top. The game will be played from 8.15pm with the arbitration of Ariel Penel.
El Millonario is second in the standings, with 24 points, two less than the only leader Talleres, who has 26, and plays earlier against Rosario Central.
If River wins and the T fails to add three, Marcelo Gallardo’s men will be able to climb to the top of the table.
Núñez’s team is on the rise after an irregular start and has seven games without losing, with five wins and two draws.
After beating Arsenal 1-0 on the last matchday at the Monumental, the Doll would make two changes. In the attack, Matías Suárez would return to the title for Benjamin Rollheiser, while Milton Casco, on the right side, would enter for Santiago Simón.
On the side of Central Córdoba, the team has been fighting to escape from the bottom of the standings. He has 11 points and only won two of the 12 games he played.
Sergio Rondina, former Arsenal manager, who came as coach in place of Gustavo Coleoni two dates ago, would make two mandatory changes.
Oscar Salomón, with five yellows, would leave his place to Alejandro Maciel, while for the torn Lucas Brochero Alejandro Martínez would enter.
The history indicates that they played two games, with two victories for the Millionaire and three goals in favor against none of the people from Santiago.
