The Uruguayan soccer team will travel to Buenos Aires this Sunday to face Argentina, due to the pending fifth date of the South American Qualifier heading to Qatar 2022, without the presence of midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur and with the doubt of midfielder Giorgian De Arrascaeta and defender José Luis Gimenez.
In the case of Bentancur, with a past at Boca and a promising present at Juventus, he reached the fifth yellow when he fouled 16 minutes into the first half. The same stage brought another bad news to the coach, Oscar Washington Tabárez, because De Arrascaeta felt a pull at 44 minutes and asked to leave the field in the tie with Colombia (0-0).
“It’s difficult for them to be there. Giorgian’s is something in the anterior rectus, we don’t know how serious it is. From my experience, having a muscle problem less than three days before a complicated game. Josema has a problem in the adductor muscle,” he explained Tabárez at the press conference.
Barely 15 minutes passed from the complement and Giménez, a stronghold of the Uruguayan fund with Diego Godín, demanded in a sweep and instantly asked for the change, so it is also in doubt.
Uruguay (16 points) did not train on Friday morning and only between Saturday and the early hours of Sunday will they define their starting eleven to add three points for the first time in their history at the Monumental Stadium, in a World Cup qualifying match .
The outlook is currently not easy for the Charruas, since they are fourth with the same units as Ecuador, but they will go out this Sunday against Argentina and will be visitors again on Thursday with Brazil.
