The explosion of anger that Julio César Falcioni had over the arbitrations drew all eyes, analyzes and debates. The coach exposed his position after Diego Abal’s bad task against Platense (1-1), a match in which the judge had to expel Iván Gómez for a shot at Lucas Romero and did not sanction an expensive penalty from Mauro Bogado to Fabricio Bustos.
The coach marked the field and launched a preventive attack, but since this Sunday he is already focused on football. A Independent a crucial week is coming: on Wednesday he will face Tigre in San Nicolás, for the Argentine Cup, and on Sunday you will receive Racing, for the fifth date of the Professional Football League.
Although the Avellaneda classic is looming, a meeting that due to its emotional value could mark a turning point, the 65-year-old coach considers that the match against the Matador de Victoria will be fundamental since that competition grants a ticket to dispute the Copa Libertadores next year, a contest that Rojo has not yet classified.
Falcioni gives relevance to the Argentine Cup
Falcioni is going to evaluate the physical response of his team, who have faced six games in the last 17 days, but in principle he plans to put the majority of headlines against Tigre. “I take the matches of the Argentine Cup very seriously and with great responsibility, so we will try to put the best. We need the entire squad to be involved “emphasized the coach.
The case of the left side

Falcioni is presented with a dilemma on the left side. Lucas Rodríguez did not play against Platense. The coaching staff decided to preserve the leading marker as a result of muscle overload. The idea was not to take risks in the previous week with two important commitments. Thomas Ortega entered his replacement. And the 20-year-old left-back was the weakest footballer on the team.: Facundo Curuchet won his back throughout the night and for his sector the play of the goal of the Squid was born.
In this Sunday’s practice, Rodríguez worked in a different way. The coach is going to evaluate him tomorrow and, In case he presents discomfort or they do not see him well, Ortega would start once again against Tigre, something that so far seems to be the most likely.
The footballers who played from the start against Platense carried out regenerative work yesterday, while the rest completed a circuit of integral strength and coordination and speed stations before adding a few minutes of football. In that test there were no indications of the possible team to play against the Matador and only this Monday will the unknowns begin to be revealed.
One of the doubts is in the lead, since a Silvio Romero he felt tired in the last match against Platense as a consequence of the accumulation of parties. There is a possibility that it will be replaced by Jonathan Herrera, but the coach He will define it in the next few hours, after talking with the forward. Contemplating the words of the coach it is most likely that several headlines will play.
