From route to route, River begins to leave the questions behind. Basically, Martin Demichelisa technician arrived to succeed Marcelo Gallardo and he knows that the shadow of the international enterprise is very large. Although he won two titles in 2023, he did not get recognition for his management. However, the Cordovan moves forward and, after the comfortable victory against Riestra, already has a plan in mind to manage the loads and ensure that his team arrives in the best conditions at the Superclásico on 24 February.

The delegation will go this afternoon at 6.00 pm Tucumanwhere they will play against Atlético tomorrow. Demichelis is evaluating whether to put on the plane the two players who will return today after playing the Pre-Olympic with the Under 23 national team: Pablo Solari and Claudio Echeverri.

“The journey from Venezuela is long, tiring, we will see how they arrive to see if we can incorporate them to fly to Tucumán. They will certainly want to return quickly, like Seba Boselli, who I thank because he is the only boy on campus who hasn’t had a single day of vacation. “I will talk to Pablo and Claudio and we will try to take care of them because we need them healthy,” the coach said.

The good news on Monday is that Milton Casco is now available. At the beginning of December the full-back underwent surgery for a meniscal tear in his right knee. He already works alongside his teammates and Demichelis has to decide whether to take him to Tucumán or play again against Banfield, on Sunday at the Monumental.

Looking towards the horizon, River has the duel with Boca between its eyebrows. By then they will be recovered Manuel Lanzini and Matías Kranevitter. The hitch suffered a torn hamstring in his right leg on Jan. 20 in a friendly match with Pachuca. One possibility is that he is on the bench against Banfield.

In the case of the midfielder, the tear in the rectus femoris of his right leg occurred before the start of the tournament, shortly before his debut with Argentinos Juniors. After some criticism, Nicolás Fonseca asserted himself in the middle of the pitch. Kranevitter was a permanent fixture to fill the spot left by Enzo Pérez, who decided to continue his career at Estudiantes.

Santiago Simón is another footballer who will return soon. The flying winger suffered a fractured dislocation of the first metacarpal of his right hand against Monterrey and will be in a cast for a month next week.

Injury losses have been a constant in the eventful start to 2024. As if all this wasn’t enough, Gonzalo Martínez tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and will only be able to return in the second half.

As for the duel with Tucuman, Demichelis evaluates whether to continue with Marcelo Herrera or let Agustín Sant’Anna play from the start. The boys Franco Mastantuono and Agustín Ruberto ask for a clue. Facundo Colidio or Miguel Borja could rest. Will Rodrigo Villagra, who came on in the second half for Deportivo Riestra, start?
