Racing and Colón finalize details for the final of the League Cup that will be played next Friday from 7pm in San Juan. Between questions of tactics, strategy and choice of players, the results of the pre-game swabs are also very important. Today, both teams confirmed that they will have a coronavirus casualty.

On the Racing side, the only positive test was that of Julián López, who has already been isolated and is experiencing the disease asymptomatically. The rest of the squad and coaching staff tested negative.

The midfielder returned to training yesterday after four days of isolation as a precaution since last Friday he had presented a feverish picture, although he gave negative to the two tests they carried out. He was going to start against Boca in the semifinal match but was disaffected as a precaution. His place was taken by Anibal Moreno. Now, in the general test of the entire delegation, it tested positive.

In the case of Colón de Santa Fe, concern was generated by Facundo Farías’ positive in the rapid coronavirus test. Now the result of the swab is awaited, but it has already been isolated preventively.

Farías, one of the revelations of Colón’s championship and attack duo along with Pulga Rodríguez, was the only one with a detectable result of Covid-19 in the antigen tests carried out by the campus led by Eduardo Domínguez. Immediately, the striker underwent a PCR that will have results in the afternoon to confirm if he indeed has coronavirus.

If the absence of Facundo Farías for the final is confirmed in the Sabalero, his replacement would be between Nicolás Leguizamón or Wilson Morelo.

Pitana, the referee of the final

Néstor Pitana was appointed as referee for the final of the Professional League Cup between Racing and Colón de Santa Fe, which will be played this Friday starting at 7 p.m.

Pitana will be accompanied by Lucas Germanotta and Juan Castelli as assistants. Andrés Merlos will be the fourth official, Daiana Milone will be the fifth and Sergio Viola will be as field advisor at the “San Juan del Bicentenario” stadium, where the decisive match of the local competition will be played.
