The summoned River Plate:
How does River Plate arrive?
River Plate has three wins in a row (Argentinos, Estudiantes and Patronato), which allows it to remain within a shot of the top of the tournament and firmly in the Copa Libertadores zone in the Annual Table.
With a total of 41 points, he appears three behind Racing and Atlético Tucumán and four behind the leader Boca Juniors (before he will face Sarmiento de Junín). In the race for a ticket to the international competition, he accumulates 70 units and leads Gimnasia by six and Argentinos Juniors by eight with three duels to go.
As far as the team is concerned, Marcelo Gallardo will not be able to repeat the formation due to Enzo Pérez’s absence due to injury.
A variant is that Santiago Simón enters and that Nicolás De La Cruz and Agustín Palavecino share the central zone of the middle of the field. Another variant would be the entry of Leandro González Pirez to form a line of five defenders. On offense, Lucas Beltrán bids for a place with Pablo Solari to be Miguel Borja’s companion.
Those summoned from Platense:
Although he accumulates five games without victories and two defeats in a row (Atlético Tucumán and Colón), Platense achieved his goal and last day he secured his stay next season in the highest category of Argentine soccer. However, the Squid is still complicated with the average and must add to not have problems in 2023.
Omar De Felippe could bet on the same eleven that have just lost to Sabalero at the Ciudad de Vicente López stadium.
