The DT will not be able to count on Estudiantes with Peruzzi and Di Santo, who still need to be in their best form.
The debut passed. After waiting for so long, Mariano Soso was finally able to start his cycle for the points in San Lorenzo. The 0-0 pale with Argentinos Juniors at La Paternal last Saturday left the coach with a lot of homework, especially to change the face of the midfield team forward. For the second match, against Estudiantes at the Nuevo Gasometer, he hoped to recover two players he considers starters, but at the beginning of the week he already knows that neither will reach 100 percent.
Neither Franco Di Santo nor Gino Peruzzi will play next Saturday. They had already missed the premiere and the upcoming engagement will also be absent. The two are recovering from tears and the coaching staff have no intention of rushing them into set-up.
Peruzzi injured his left adductor muscle during the friendly with Lanús, a couple of days before the striker from Mendoza (on the right hamstring). This is why it is estimated that before this weekend it can begin to move along with the rest of the squad. So would the kid Agustin Hausch.
However, Soso and company do not want to accelerate anything and prefer to give them a few more days so that they can recover from football after three weeks inactive. In this way, Victor Salazar will continue to be the right back among the starters.
For his part, Di Santo will only join the group work next week. If he trains well and has no complications, he will be able to make his presentation on the third date, against Aldosivi in Mar del Plata, on the weekend of Friday the 13th. Peruzzi will also return for that same match.
It will be necessary to see, taking this into account, if Soso plans to repeat the eleven that they could not generate almost risky situations against him Animal or if he makes variations looking for more offensive dynamics.
One possibility would be to include Jonathan Herrera, who entered the final minutes at Diego Armando Maradona. The former Central Córdoba is physically well, but he fell back because for different reasons (coronavirus, muscle overload, paternity leave) he lost days of training and had to add pace.
Other alternatives that the DT has with a view to fueling the attack are Ignacio Piatti Y Matías Palacios. Nacho He entered the second half on Saturday and is a footballer fighting for a place. Meanwhile, Palacios had been integrating the training during the preseason, but the days before the debut in the Soso Professional League Cup, he decided to put Mariano Peralta Bauer in his replacement.
Test days are coming in San Lorenzo to adjust the lead, which was in debit in the first game of the it was Soso.
