The billionaire is unbeaten in the professional league but faces a completely different situation in the Copa Libertadores. With two defeats and ten goals in three appearances, the Martin Demichelos-led side are last in Group D (on goal difference) and travel to Peru needing to add three to settle for maximum continental competition. They will come to Sporting Cristal this Thursday from 9:00pm (Argentine time) with the aim of win or lose, no matter what happens in the other match. The match will be telecasted by Star+ platform.

For this match, Koteswaran will suffer two crucial casualties in the last row. He cannot count on Leandro Gonzalez Perez, who was sent off during the last match against Fluminense at the Maracana. He also suffered the loss of Emmanuel Mammana, who suffered from synovitis in his knee and did not recover. The defender is not available against Dalares in Córdoba, nor against Platzens in Nunez, and he will also miss the trip to Lima. He was dissatisfied with the team roster.

As for the assembly of the team, Martin Demichelis has in mind to make some changes with respect to the starting eleven in last Sunday’s memorial against Plattens. Billionaire TD retired Lucas Beltran and Ezequiel Fargo, both of whom had a guaranteed ticket to go from the start. Doubts go through the choice of attack and plan in the hours before the match: if he decides to go with two points, Miguel Borja will return forward; If he adds a midfielder, the return of Nicolas de la Cruz, who is recovering from a heavy load.

For Sporting Cristal, Thiago Nunes seems to have found the team. After some turmoil and some organizational problems, the Peruvian side come into this match against River having collected three consecutive wins in the local competition. DT will be betting on the same eleven from last weekend’s history-changing performance against Cuzco, with a more offensive approach and intent on attacking the millionaire.
