With the idea of resuming the path of triumph, the one that he interrupted on the previous date, when he was defeated by Banfield, and nurturing the illusion of qualifying for the South American Cup next year, Gimnasia will visit San Lorenzo today, a team that also needs of the points that will be at stake to improve a campaign that is very far from meeting the initial expectations, in a match valid for date 21 of the Professional League.
The meeting, which will begin to take place at 19:15, will have as its epicenter the Pedro Bidegain stadium, also known as the New Gasometer, with World Cup player Néstor Fabián Pitana as referee and Fox Sports Premium television.
For Lobo, this crossing acquires a particular interest because it can mean the recovery of the points that he lost at home, at the Ciudad de La Plata Stadium, against Banfield, and with them a rearrangement in the classification of the present contest and also in the Annual table, where it is in an expectant position regarding the teams that will represent Argentina in the international competitions of 2022.
“It is the moment of truth, of definitions, you have to win these games,” said in the previous Néstor (“Pipo”) Gorosito, the coach of the Tripero team who insists on the need to play a Cup, trying to wake up with his statements to a formation that after visiting the Cyclone will be a workshop venue, will visit Argentines, receive Students and will travel to Paraná, Entre Ríos, to be measured with the Board of Trustees.
Regarding the person in charge of forming the Albiazul team: he must have a starting formation from the casualties of Maximiliano Coronel, who underwent surgery for a serious knee injury, and Guillermo Fratta, the Uruguayan who replaced him in front of the Drill and suffered a tear , which will require a series of movements in the last line.
Johan Carbonero and Rodrigo Holgado, meanwhile, had to train with special care at the Estancia Chica property and also led Gorosito to have to consider possible variants in case he had to order their replacements.
The surprise was the DT’s decision to lean towards Eric Ramírez to replace Holgado, who is not quite right. And NIcolás Colazo beat Lucas Licht on the left wing.
In the annual table, to reach the South American Cup, the Albiazules have 43 points and the Cyclone 41
With regard to San Lorenzo, it is sunk in the lowest segment of the standings, with Diego Monarriz as interim DT, who in his eagerness to correct the course of a team that has not stopped in recent seasons to see parading coaches, will have three changes regarding the cast that lost to Vélez in Liniers.
Alejandro Donatti, Gabriel Rojas and Ezequiel Cerutti will enter for Francisco Flores, Agustín Martegani and Julián Palacios, respectively, while Sebastián Torrico will continue in the arc despite rumors to the contrary that circulated as a result of his unhappy performances, with errors that he paid for. with goals.
In its most immediate antecedent, Gimnasia lost 1-0 to Banfield and in its previous presentations it reaped three victories and a draw, while San Lorenzo has fallen 2-1 against Vélez and in the four previous dates it won once and lost The remaining.
The last matches of their own yielded all the possible results, because the Catalans achieved two wins, the Albiazules one and the remaining two matches ended in draws.
In this framework, San Lorenzo and Gimnasia will then meet, two teams that are in need of points in a campaign that, in particular Lobo, will have to outline in the last five dates of the competition.
