Bad news for River in the preview of a string of complicated matches that can be decisive in the fight for the Professional League of Argentine soccer. The side Fabrizio Angileri suffered a tear in his left hamstring and he will miss the classic against San Lorenzo and the match against Talleres de Córdoba, escort in the standings.
The 27-year-old defender felt a discomfort during Thursday’s training at the Ezeiza property and in the afternoon the injury was confirmed, which will have it inactive for at least two weeks. In this way, he could not be present against Argentinos Juniors either.
Marcelo Gallardo must define if he enters instead David Martínez or if he moves Milton Casco to the left wing and includes Alex Vigo on the right.
The loss of the side is added to those of Enzo Pérez, who suffered a fissure in the little toe of his left foot, and Braian Romero, who was torn in the Superclásico. Although both did field tasks, they would not be available for the game against the Cyclone. The idea is that Pérez, Romero and Jonatan Maidana, also torn, receive medical discharge next week.
On the other hand, the coach must wait for the return of the players summoned to the date of Elimination, Franco Armani, Julián Álvarez, Paulo Díaz, Robert Rojas and Nicolás de la Cruz.
David Martínez, the good one in River
Among so many pale ones, there is also good news for Marcelo Gallardo. For this weekend, The Doll will recover the central defender David Martínez, who had suffered a tear in his left quadriceps on Wednesday, September 15 when he returned from the previous triple qualifying round with Paraguay and for that reason did not play the last six games of the Millionaire.
The former Defense and Justice player, a product of River’s inferiors, had established himself as a starter alongside Paulo Díaz in February this year after Javier Pinola’s injury, but after the tear he lost continuity in the team.
Núñez’s team is at the forefront of the tournament with a streak of nine consecutive dates without losing and with five wins in a row, which places him at the top of the table with 33 points. Talleres appears in second place, with 32. These two teams will meet next Thursday at the Mario Alberto Kempes stadium in Córdoba.
