River Plate returns to the Monumental on Sunday to take another step to the title of the League Tournament against Patronato and Marcelo Gallardo once again suffers important losses, but could repeat the eleven that he tied with Estudiantes LP.
The millionaire DT already knew that he would not be able to count on Paulo Diaz, who was torn prior to the game in La Plata, but this absence was added on Thursday by that of Fabrizio Angileri, who suffered from the left hamstring injury in training and was already ruled out for Sunday. The “positive”, if you will, is that the ex-Godoy Cruz had not returned to be a starter yet, despite the fact that he was discharged.
Now, what the Doll must wait is to see if it has available to Robert Rojas. The Paraguayan defender, who can play central or wing, finished the previous Sunday with a muscular overload and this week he could not train on par with the rest, although he has shown an improvement.
If Rojas recovers in time, the team could repeat itself. Otherwise, Alex Vigo, who was very relegated in the last games, is an option to play on the right of the defense or Gallardo could improvise some solution.
The other question is whether he will keep Benjamín Rollheiser up front or if Braian Romero can resume the title.
In this way, the initial eleven of the Millionaire would be: Franco Armani; Robert Rojas or Alex Vigo, Felipe Peña Biafore, Héctor Martínez, Milton Casco; Santiago Simón, Enzo Fernández, Enzo Pérez, Agustín Palavecino; Julián Álvarez and Benjamín Rollheiser or Braian Romero.
River will receive Patronato on Sunday from 8:15 p.m., on the 20th. championship date.
