The Academy receives Arsenal for date 3 of the League Cup.
With the Qualifiers involved, Argentine football does not stop. For the third date of the Professional League Cup, Racing faces Arsenal de Sarandí in Avellaneda, in zone 1, which they share with Atlético Tucumán and Unión de Santa Fe. Both teams need to add to get out of the bottom of the table and not to lose track of the Dean, who is at the forefront.
The need to add for the Academy is urgent. He was surprised on the first date by Atlético Tucumán at home, when Sebastián Beccacece’s men fell 4 to 1, and last week, things did not change much either, since they lost 2 to 0 in Santa Fé against Tatengue. In this way, Racing is at the bottom of the table in zone 1, with no units added.
The technician, in the last press conference, assured that “We improved, especially in the first half with Unión. In the second we lower the level. So my post-game analysis was brief. I’m not angry, I’m happy with an excellent group “.
Racing arrives beaten by the injuries of Nery Domínguez, Augusto Solari, Lorenzo Melgarejo and Marcelo Díaz. In addition, the continuity of the championship while the FIFA date is being played, also hurt Beccacece’s team, since Matías Rojas was called up by Eduardo Berizzo for the Paraguayan team.
Given the numerous casualties in the first team, the coach is forced to call the kids from the reserve of Predio Tita Mattiussi. As headlines, they would go Carlos Alcaraz and Tiago Banega, replacing the absent midfielders. Lucas Orban will also reappear in the central defense.
Racing: Arias; Pillud, Sigali, Orban, Mena; Banega, Miranda, Alcaraz; Montoya, Licha and Fértoli.
Arsenal: Gagliardo; Abreliano, Carabajal, Pereyra, Papa; Picco, Antilef, Castro; Soraire; Albertengo, Ruíz.
