Rosario Central and Argentinos Juniors face off this Friday in Santa Fe, in the match that will kick off the LPF (Professional Football League) 2023. It will start at 19:15 at the Gigante de Arroyito stadium, with referee Yael Falcón Pérez , accompanied by Juan Vázquez and Maximiliano Castelli, and broadcast by TNT Sports.
The coach of the “rascal” team, Miguel Ángel Russo, has almost confirmed the team, although he maintains a doubt in the frontcourt: the inclusion of Fabricio Oviedo or Octavio Bianchi to accompany Jhonatan Candia in pairs.
Reinforcements from the Rosario team (Facundo Mallo, Carlos Quintana and Alan “Coyote” Rodríguez) will make their debut from the start.
Rosario Central will not face international competition this year, so the local tournament and the Argentine Cup will be their highest aspirations.
Argentinos Juniors, a team that will have the Copa Libertadores de América 2023 as its main objective, will start the local tournament with the intention of improving on the eighth place obtained in the last championship.
The “Bicho” coach, Gabriel Milito, will not film reinforcements Rodrigo Cabral, Leonardo Heredia, Alexis Martin Arias, Fabricio Dominguez, Francisco González Metilli, Matias Vera and Facundo Ferreyra from the start.
