Leagues around the world are detained these days as a result of the fifa datewhere the Chilean team It is one of the many that will see action. Two friendly matches will have the Redagainst Morocco and Qatar, and the first will be played this Friday, September 23, a duel for which Eduardo Berizzo define your training to go for his first win.

The Toto took the reins of Everyone’s Team at the end of May and after that he embarked on a tour of Asia, with a payroll that he did not put together, and in three games he added three defeats: 0-2 against South Korea, 0-2 against Tunisia and a 0-0 that finished 1-3 on penalties against Ghana. So now he wants to celebrate.

Berizzo He has not been able to celebrate a victory and now he will have tough challenges against two teams that will say they will be present at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and that is what motivates him to go with his best men, although there is also room to innovate and look for alternatives.

In this context, the first great novelty would be the change of scheme, or so at least Marcelo Bielsa’s disciple and former assistant recently hinted at a press conference.

Against South Korea Berizzo lined up a 4-1-4-1, against Tunisia a 4-3-3 and against Ghana a 3-4-1-2 scheme, and it is the latter that is closest to what is probably will line up against Morocco. A novel 3-5-2 will jump onto the pitch at the Cornellà-El Prat Stadium in Barcelona.

If there are no setbacks, the Red will go with the following formation: Brayan Cortes in the bow, Paul Diaz, Gary Medell Y Valber Huerta in defence; Nayel Mehssatou, Erick Thumb, Gabriel Suazo; Marcelino Nunez Y Arturo vidal in midfield; Alexis Sanchez Y Ben Breretton in attack.

It should be noted that an alternative in defense is Guillermo Maripán, who had differentiated work on the training day prior to the clash with the Moroccans and his physical discomfort leaves him even in doubt to see action in the next duel against Qatar.

Morocco, for its part, does not mess around with small things and also wants to celebrate. The team led by Walid Regraki will have two of its main stars, one from Chelsea and the other from Inter Milan, on the pitch and will form with Mounir El Mohamady in goal; Ashraf Hakmi, Yahya Attia Allah, Roman Sais and Ashraf Dari in defense; Ezzedine Onahi, Yahya Gibran and Younes Belhanda in midfield; Hakim ZyechRyan Mayi and Ayoub Al Kaabi up front.
