A very special Superclásico is coming between River and Boca. They will meet in the round of 16 of the Argentine Cup and it will be a decisive match for both teams’ semesters.
The bad news for the Millionaire was confirmed and Matías Suárez was left out of the list of concentrates. The forward did not recover from his distension and they will take care of him thinking about the quarterfinals of the Libertadores against Atlético Mineiro.
His place would be occupied by Julián Álvarez, which must make one of the team figures forget. The other question is in the defense and it is because of Paulo Díaz, who came out with an injury in the game against Huracán.
The rest of the team would be the same that has been playing and that achieved good results in the last matches in the championship. Bruno Zuculini would remain in the XI and the formation would be 4-1-3-2.
With the certainty that Gallardo can always surprise (there is talk of a chance for José Paradela in the midfield), this would be River’s XI: Franco Armani; Gonzalo Montiel, Paulo Díaz, David Martínez and Fabrizio Angileri; Bruno Zuculini, Enzo Pérez, Nicolás De la Cruz and Jorge Carrascal; Braian Romero and Julián Álvarez.
