Sebastián Beccacece has everything ready for the trip to Peru. Although he is true to his style, he does not confirm the starting line-up, but he has probably already defined it in a list of 23 players who will travel this Tuesday. The competition delegation will board a flight at 15:00 to Lima, where they will visit Alianza for Group F in the Copa Libertadores on Wednesday. There, the squad will stay at the Sheraton hotel while they wait for the match and immediately after that they will start returning to Buenos Aires.
The Academy flies without the presence of four of its holders: Lisandro López, Matías Rojas, Augusto Solari and Matías Zaracho. The first two suffered from injuries to the quadriceps on the left leg (Paraguayan has a tear), Solari was sent off against Nacional from Uruguay and Zaracho follows the isolation at home to be a carrier of coronavirus.
The mystery of the formation of Racing for its game with the Alliance
Made? Pretty mystery. Beccacece made several changes in his tactical rehearsal on Tuesday from what he had practiced on Sunday and Monday. A variant that has been sung is that of Nicolás Reniero by Darío Cvitanich in the middle of the attack, while Marcelo Díaz (who has already recovered from a strain) can return and it is not excluded that Soto will enter on the left side of Eugenio Mena. In that case, Leonel Miranda will act as internal midfielder, and Melgarejo or Carlos Alcaraz would act on the left. Forward, as a winger on the right, there are further doubts: Benjamín Garré or Walter Montoya, who he first tested this Tuesday.
It is also not excluded that Soto goes to the middle, Mena continues on the side and Melgarejo starts on the left wing, this one replaces Fértoli. With these questions the academy would be formed as follows: Arias; Pillud, Nery Domínguez, Sigali, Soto; Miranda, Díaz, Melgarejo or Alcaraz; Montoya or Garré, Reniero and Fértoli. Second, with six units, Racing will face the group’s last. In 1-1 with Universidad César Vallejo, Alianza saved all their entrees for the cup match in the middle of a series of games: on Wednesday, they play their fourth match in eight days. With no units in the group, of the last seven matches he played, he made five and lost two.
