After the victory in the Superclásico, River Plate is already thinking about the match with Banfield in the South, where it will seek to defend its brand new leadership in the League Tournament despite the losses from the South American Qualifiers, in addition to Matías Suárez and Enzo Pérez, in serious doubt.
Franco Armani and Julián Álvarez, in Argentina, Nicolás De la Cruz, with Uruguay, Robert Rojas, with Paraguay, and Paulo Díaz, with Chile, will not be there for the triple FIFA date in October.
While this Thursday, the millionaire medical body decided that Matías Suárez will be operated on next Tuesday for chronic synovitis in his right knee.
Héctor Martínez is still not recovered and would be out again. Another important question is that of Enzo Pérez, who suffered a fissure in the foot before Boca and, according to Javier Gil Navarro in SportsCenter AM, the midfielder was trained differently and will most likely be preserved on Saturday.
Instead, Bruno Zuculini could play. And up front, Agustín Fontana, first, and Federico Girotti, as an option, would accompany Benjamin Rollheiser.
In this way, the initial eleven of the Millionaire would be: Enrique Bologna; Milton Casco, Felipe Peña Biafore, Javier Pinola, Fabrizio Angileri; Santiago Simón, Bruno Zuculini or Enzo Pérez, Agustín Palavecino, Jorge Carrascal; José Fontana or Federico Girotti and Benjamin Rollheiser.
River will visit Banfield at the Florencio Sola stadium, on Saturday from 6:00 p.m., for date 15.
