Racing vs. River, for the Professional League Tournament: summoned, eleven and substitutes

The defeat suffered by Colón on Sunday night was a major headache for Racing, which seemed to find its way to victory after beating Atlético in Tucumán. In the absence of four dates to finish the 2021 Professional League Tournament, he is out of qualifying positions for cups, his great goal. Fernando Gago believes that there are still opportunities: “Mathematically we have chances to enter a cup and that is what we are aiming for. The players are psyched to reach that goal,” he said in a conference.

His replacement is the main doubt of Fernando Gago, also attentive to the evolution of Eugenio Mena and Matías Rojas. The Chilean is less likely to be in the Monumental. Eleven is still unknown.
