PROFESSIONAL LEAGUE CUP
Martín Demichelis will not have the pieces that were in his selections, including Franco Armani. River wants to finish the date as leader.
River recovered its memory after a turbulent start in the Super League Cup, with two defeats and a draw as a visitor. The face changed against Boca on the seventh day and then they beat Talleres as a visitor. Salomón Rondón, who was not mentioned, scored in both matches.
Regarding the standings, River has 16 points and it will be essential to win to maintain its status as leader against Independiente. The match between River and Colón for matchday 9 of the League Cup will take place this Thursday from 6:30 p.m. at the Brigadier Estanislao López and with the refereeing of Nicolás Ramírez.
The week for Martín Demichelis was somewhat adverse: he could not count on Franco Armani, Paulo Díaz, Nico De La Cruz, the aforementioned Rondón, Santiago Simón or Pablo Solari. When it was believed that Armani could be a starter because he did not play, the coach decided to leave him out of the trip to Córdoba along with the other three who were in senior national teams.
With this panorama, the coach will have to rebuild the team and could suffer in defense because the Chilean was the best piece he had in the last games. He will go to the arch Ezequiel Centurion. The replacement of the Uruguayan, therefore, would be in charge of either Aliendro or Palavecino, while Rondón’s replacement will be piece by piece: his place will be taken by Miguel Ángel Borja.
The probable River team vs. Colon
Taking into account the players that Martín Demichelis will not have available, a probable eleven will be with: Franco Armani; Andrew Herrera, Leandro Gonzalez, Ramiro Funes Mori, Milton Helmet; Enzo Perez, Rodrigo Aliendro or Augustin Palavecino; Nacho Fernandez, Manuel Lanzini, Ezequiel Barco and Michael Angel Borja.
River dominates the history
Regarding the history they have, it is favorable to River. They played 75 times, El Millonario won 37, Colón did it 17 times and they tied the remaining 21. The last duel was for Martín Demichelis’ team: 2 to 0 with goals from Lucas Beltrán and Nicolás De La Cruz.
The negative streak as a visitor against Sabalero
The bad for River is what it boasts playing as a visitor against Sabalero: he has not been able to beat Colón for almost 13 years. The last time was in December 2010 and seven meetings have already passed. Four were defeats and three were draws.
