River Plate - Arsenal Sarandí (Copa Sudamericana Preview)

River Plate will try to reach the quarter-finals of the Copa Sudamericana tonight, against Arsenal Sarandí, that brings a one goal advantage from the first leg.

The argentian championship is a priority to Astrada, River's manager, so he will line-up a mixture of first team and back-up players. One of the changes is the inclusion of second goal-keeper, Germán Lux, in replace of Franco Costanzo.

In attack, El Jefe will give a rest to chilean striker, Marcelo Salas, that has played, last weekend, his first full 90 minutes, since his injury recovery. In midfield, it is not yet certain the inclusion in the starting eleven of youth player Jesus Mendez, to replace Javier Mascherano.

In regard to Arsenal Sarandí, the only change is the exclusion of Javier Mazzoni, due to injury. Germán Denis will team up with José Luís Calderón in the attack of Arsenal.

Probable line-ups

River Plate: Germán Lux; Tula, Celso Ayala, Fernando Crosa, Miranda; Patiño, Mascherano (Méndez), Gastón Fernández; Gallardo (Sambueza); Cuevas, Sand.

Arsenal: Limia; Darío Espínola, Carlos Ruiz, Casteglione, Núñez; Hirsig (Ormazábal), Esmerado, Patricio González, Rodolfo Quinteros; Denis, Calderón.

Keep up the good work »
