In a squad without too many variations, the DT will move some pieces in the clash against Central Córdoba to save energy for the continental competition.
The improvement in the game that was seen in the first half of Sunday in Florencio Varela gave Lucas Pusineri the signal that the path he is traveling with the Independiente diver is the correct one. Beyond the fact that the team still cannot maintain that level for a longer period of time and, in addition, it must resolve an evident lack of depth, for now the Avellaneda DT is working quietly hand in hand with good results. He has not lost so far this semester, he went to the 16th of the South American Cup and is second in zone 2 of the Professional League Cup with a short and young squad.
And while he continues in that game search, the coach has to make decisions regarding the formation of each commitment. The calendar stifles and you have to define priorities in a complex scenario because neither of the two competencies can be dismissed.
Now, facing the duel on Saturday against Central Córdoba for the domestic sphere, Half he plans to appeal to the rotation again since next Wednesday he will have to travel to Uruguay for the first leg cup with Phoenix.
He had already done it on the first date, also against the same rival, but in Santiago del Estero. Without playing well and with a Sebastián Sosa figure, he was able to bring the three points. And this time he plans to do something similar, including in training players with fewer minutes to take care of the legs of the usual starters.
It is clear: the Sudamericana is the central objective of 2020, because in addition to an international title it gives the needed place to the Libertadores 2021, something that can also be achieved if it wins the local League Cup. But Red It will focus a priori on the contest that it already won in 2010 and 2017.
From back to front, they will change the names in relation to the tie against Defense and Justice last weekend. In the arc it will be again Milton Alvarez since the intention will be to preserve Sosa, who is coming out of a muscle strain and they will try to get him to Wednesday.
Fabricio Bustos Y Alan Franco they could rest. The center-back is the only one who has always played so far and this time it will be his turn to see him from the outside. Gonzalo Asis Y Sergio Barreto They are the ones who would enter. Alexander Barboza Y Lucas Rodriguez would continue.
In the middle though Lucas Gonzalez does not present muscle injury (came out sore before the Hawk), it will not be. Neither Lucas Romero. That is why Pablo Hernandez and the kid Juan Pacchini they would be in the midfield. Would also come out Alan Velasco and in his position the Uruguayan could appear Federico Martinez or the juvenile Braian Martinez.
It will also be necessary to see if the DT maintains White sunday already Alan Dreaming or if he has the chance again from the start Andres Roa. And the 9th will be the other question to be resolved: will Silvio Romero get oxygen and Nicolas Messiniti?
Thus, looking at the South American sideways while planning the game this weekend, Pusineri is managing the energies of a team without too many variations and with decisive duels on the horizon.
