Arrive early, before 7 in the morning, and plan work in the office Juan Roman Riquelme assigned it to the Ezeiza High Performance Center. Watch lots of videos. it’s clear Jorge Almiron that you don’t have time. He manages one of the most important clubs in the country, but he arrived because of the crisis. So, he combines training with every match in the midst of urgency. Do you know that this Tuesday night, in that Bombonera that trembles for the level that the team has shown, you need to get your first win. After all, as the fans sing, the Copa Libertadores is the obsession.
For this reason, the coach, who made his debut six days ago and has already lost two games (San Lorenzo and Estudiantes), is committed to finding the best possible formation to face Deportivo Pereira from 21:00. due to injury and one due to suspension. And until the end he doesn’t know if he can count on Sebastián Villa. In this context, he will not modify his fetish system, the 4-3-3 that he used against La Plata and was maintained at the start of the classic in the Nuevo Gasómetro, where he bet on the 5-3-2 to counter the Cyclone.
“An important match is coming. They are players who need to recover quickly. That’s why I’m in this institution. Little by little we have to improve things. There are things to calm down, ”said the coach.
Almirón will not be able to count on Juan Ramírez, whose diagnosis for his injury against Estudiantes was revealed on Monday. The midfielder has a grade 2 hamstring tear in his left leg. Pol Fernández will replace him, like on Saturday. Which suggests that the coach wants association players, since he will still insist with Oscar Romero.
Frank Fabra (sprained internal ligaments of his right knee), Bruno Valdez (same injury as Ramírez), Luca Langoni (sprained right hamstring of the first degree) and Facundo Roncaglia (sent off against Monagas) will also not be present.
Villa until the last moment will be unknown. He didn’t concentrate and couldn’t testify at the gender-based violence trial on Monday. He will have to do it today, but after four witnesses, which casts doubt on whether he will arrive in time to play with Deportivo Pereira. In yesterday’s practice Miguel Merentiel and Norberto Briasco were at extremes. If the Colombian is not available, the Uruguayan will play.
Luis Advíncula will be back on the right side and on the left will be Valentin Barco, who will have his baptism as cupbearer at just 18 years old. Almirón trusts the boy’s condition which arouses enthusiasm for his condition.
Deportivo Pereira arrives in Argentina with a positive streak: they haven’t lost in six matches. They drew 2-2 with Santa Fe on Saturday. On his debut in the national team he drew 1-1 with Colo Colo, the other big player in group F.
