The defender has a knee problem, the same one that prevented him from playing in the friendly against Poland. For the same reason, he is ruled out to face Slovakia, in the last game of the year for the Chilean team.

This Sunday the Chilean national team will seek to say goodbye to the season with a win, in a friendly against the Slovakia national team. This, taking into account that in the six games that Eduardo Berizzo has directed they have not been able to come out with a win.

Under this pressure, the panorama begins to complicate for the Red, since they assure that paulo diaz is confirmed low for the match against Slovakia.

This was stated by the journalist Maks Cárdenas, who in his office for ESPN Chile, leaves the River Plate defender on the sidelines, due to physical problems.

“Paulo Díaz is out. He has a knee problem. He felt this discomfort just in the warm-up before the game (Poland). He was going to start with Maripán in the game, that’s why Sierralta came in,” said the journalist.

In this sense, he assures that the constant casualties in the squad have meant that Berizzo cannot train, for example, in a friendly match, because he does not have the number of players necessary to stop two formations.

“(Díaz) He trains on the sidelines and that is why he lacks a field player to be able to train eleven against eleven. (Cristóbal) Campos would have to enter in some position on the field, but he has not stopped the team. That is why it is thought that the names are going to be repeated, the one in Valencia would be a change”, he concludes.
