To the inconveniences you have to make the equipment work, Julio César Falcioni added another headache after the defeat against Central Córdoba de Santiago del Estero. What happened? Lucas Romero saw the fifth yellow card and will have to purge a suspension date, so he will not be present this Wednesday against Boca. As if that were not enough, the Independiente coach will not have Alan So Señora, who suffered a tear in the pre-match in the North. So what will you do?
Before the loss of the offensive midfielder, the emperor He was inclined to put Lucas González in front of the Railroad, with the aim of giving more volume to the middle of the field, a plan that did not work. And with little time for the classic that will be played in the Libertadores de América, he must decide who will enter in replacement of the Dog, a key man within the coach’s scheme but who did not have a good last game.
The natural option would be the entry of Carlos Benavídez, the only experienced central midfielder on the professional roster. The positive is that the Uruguayan has been adding several minutes in the last matches, after a long ten-month inactivity due to a ligament injury. His return to Primera was in the 1-0 loss to Newell’s, when he had to play due to the suspension of Domingo Blanco. Then, he entered the complement in the 3-0 with Arsenal and also in the 0-1 with Central Córdoba.
The alternative is for Saltita and Mingo to share half the court in front of Xeneize and add an offensive midfielder like Tomás Pozzo or a winger., like Rodrigo Márquez or Braian Martínez. However, the most likely thing is that Falcioni will lean towards Benavídez due to his characteristics of containment and balance in the middle of the field, apart from the fact that the injuries did not give him much experience in the institution.
