River Plate Demichelis will make changes everywhere

River’s technical director, Martin Demichelis, evaluates making changes in all the lines of the team that will visit Lanús on Saturday for the sixth date of the Professional League. After the unexpected defeat against Arsenal last Sunday at the Monumental stadium, the central defenders paulo diaz and Jonathan Maidana, midfielders Santiago Simon and Nicholas of the Cross and the Colombian striker Miguel Borja They have a chance to be starters.

Maidana, who returned to training normally after being absent due to fever last Wednesday, or the Chilean Paulo Díaz will replace Enzo Díaz, who has had poor performances as a defender. The possibility of Emanuel Mammana As an alternative, he lost weight after training on Thursday in which his workload was lowered so that he could just play against Racing de Córdoba next Wednesday in Santiago del Estero for the Argentine Cup.

In the middle zone, both Enzo Perez as Ignacio “Nacho” Fernandez they always played and now it would be a novelty if Simón entered, who was the figure with two goals against Banfield in the semifinal of the Champions Trophy, while De la Cruz entered in the second stage in the defeat against Arsenal. The return of the Uruguayan has greater possibilities since until now he had not played because after the World Cup in Qatar they underwent an arthroscopy in December of last year. But for Demichelis he is one of the best midfielders in South America.

As Demichelis commented on more than one occasion, with De la Cruz the team can have greater recovery capacity and offensive vertigo and with Simón high recovery, medium distance and passing between the lines, attributes that the team did not demonstrate against Arsenal. Finally in attack, Borja will play from the start since in the two games prior to the defeat with Arsenal he came out with discomfort and that relegated him to the substitute bench.

It remains to be seen if the Venezuelan will accompany him Solomon Rondon either Lucas Beltran to play with a double nine as he did against Banfield and Arsenal or if he returns to the offensive duo of the first dates with Pablo Solari. In this way, the possible team would be with Armani, Rojas, Gonzáles Pires, Paulo Díaz or Maidana and Casco; Simón, Enzo Pérez, De la Cruz and “Nacho” Fernández; Borja and Rondón, Beltrán or Solari. In addition, the youth will return to concentration Franco Alfonso, who sprained his ankle against Banfield and did not play against Arsenal, but for Demichelis he is an important alternative.

River will train again this Friday afternoon and then remain concentrated in the Monumental awaiting the match with Lanús on Saturday at 7:15 p.m., which was scheduled for that day since next Wednesday they will play Racing de Córdoba for the round of 32 of the Argentine Cup. For that reason, the team will rest on Sunday and return to training on Monday to prepare for the second heads-up of the Demichelis era.
