Ricardo Gareca's options to replace Yoshimar Yotún in the Qualifiers

The Peruvian team will face Bolivia Thursday at 9:00 pm at the National Stadium for the Qualifiers heading to Qatar 2022. Without a doubt, a crucial match for the cast of Ricardo Gareca who will seek to get into the fight for the World Cup qualification. However, the Argentine strategist will not be able to count on Yoshimar Yotún in the midfield by accumulating yellow cards. Therefore, we analyze the options of the Tiger to assemble the steering wheel of Peru.

It is worth mentioning that Gareca has been using the 4-3-3 tactical system in the Playoffs. In the scheme, Yoshimar Yotún acts as an inside wheel on the left and his role is important for the elaboration of the game of the Peruvian National Team. In addition, his understanding with Sergio Peña is consolidating in the midfield and the team’s departure alternates.

If the 4-3-3 system is maintained, what options does Ricardo Gareca have? Without a doubt, Christofer Gonzales has the first option to replace Yoshimar Yotún. The Sporting Cristal player has been playing as an inside midfielder on the left in the local tournament and has the consideration of the Argentine coach.

On the other hand, the national team strategist he also often uses the 4-2-3-1 tactical system. If this change of scheme occurs, Christian Cueva would be called to play hook. In this way, Ricardo Gareca would opt for a left-wing with a lot of imbalance.

What alternatives does El Tigre have for the left sector? Raziel García and Gabriel Costa are players with imbalance who can occupy the position. Even, both players already had the opportunity to start matches with the Peruvian National Team by Qualifying.

Finally, it is not ruled out that the National Team can play the match with two forwards. The scheme would be 4-4-2 and could be formed the duo Jefferson Farfán and Gianluca Lapadula in the Peruvian attack. It should be noted that it is a distant possibility, but in the event of an emergency this rethinking could take place.
