The campus of River Plate will undergo a new series of tests for the detection of coronavirus, before the practice that will take place behind closed doors in Ezeiza ahead of Wednesday’s clash with San Pablo, on the Independiente court, for the fifth date of Group D of the Liberators cup.
The swabs, a Conmebol requirement for each squad before the games, will take place before training, which will begin at 10 am at River Camp.
In football, meanwhile, DT Marcelo Gallardo will begin to define the team that the Brazilian team will receive on Wednesday and in which the greatest doubt is the presence of full-back Milton Casco, who recovered from the coronavirus and returned to participate on Friday of ball exercises.
If Casco cannot be there, Fabricio Angileri will follow in his place, who replaced him in the games against San Pablo himself (2-2 in Brazil) and Binacional (beaten 6-0 in Lima, Peru).
The possible formation for the match, which will be played at the Independiente stadium due to the works being carried out at the Monumental, will be: Franco Armani, Gonzalo Montiel, Lucas Martínez Quarta, Javier Pinola and Angileri o Casco; Ignacio Fernández, Enzo Pérez and Nicolás de la Cruz: Julián Alvarez, Rafael Borré and Matías Suárez.
In the tests carried out today in Ezeiza, Gallardo ordered a series of tactical definition exercises and hand-to-hand plays.
River could get a pass to the round of 16 of the Cup in the absence of a group closing date if it succeeds, which in turn would eliminate San Pablo, and it would only remain to define first place on the last date against the League Quito.
Meanwhile, a tie will also mean the virtual phase pass, since it maintains the three points difference with San Pablo with a difference of 11 goals in favor.
