The Pampas footballer Matías Palacios, who was going to start the first San Lorenzo team that will visit Aldosivi today, tested positive for coronavirus and will not be able to be present in Mar del Plata.
Hours before starting the trip to the aforementioned seaside resort, the San Lorenzo campus underwent the corresponding checks to rule out any positive case of coronavirus, and the results were not as expected by the technician Mariano Soso.
The Piquense Matías Palacios finally tested positive and, although he is asymptomatic, he must remain isolated until he recovers from the disease. As a result of this result, neither did his brother Julián travel, who also had to confine himself because he was considered a close contact, despite the fact that the test results were negative for him.
“Thank you very much to everyone who cared about me and sent me a message, I couldn’t respond to everyone but I wanted to tell them that I’m fine,” Matías wrote on his Instagram account.
San Lorenzo will visit Aldosivi today in a duel of leaders when they meet in Mar del Plata, for the third date of Zone 5 of the Professional Soccer League Cup. The match will be played at 2:00 pm at the José María Minella stadium, with refereeing by Lucas Comesaña.
River, with several absences and surprises in the formation, will seek a new victory when it visits Godoy Cruz, in Mendoza, for the third date of Zone 3. The match will be played from 9:15 p.m. at the Malvinas Argentinas stadium, with arbitration scored by Darío Herrera.
In addition, Racing will look for its first victory in the Professional League Cup today when it receives Arsenal de Sarandí through Zone 1. The match will be played from 6:45 p.m. and will be controlled by the referee Pablo Echavarría.
