For the first time so far this triple date of South American Qualifiers towards the Qatar 2022 World Cup, Julián Álvarez stayed outside the bench of the Argentine National Team. After Marcelo Gallardo threw a set to allow him to have it vs. Banfield and that Lionel Scaloni responded by making him enter both against Paraguay, last Thursday, and against Uruguay, this last Sunday, The coach of the national team decided that the jewel of River is one of the players that against Peru does not sign a roster.
Juan Musso, Juan Foyth, Lucas Martínez Quarta, Facundo Medina, Nicolás Domínguez and Alejandro Gómez are the other five who stayed outside the bench for this Thursday’s match, corresponding to the 12th of the Qualifiers.
The absence of Álvarez, like that of the other five footballers, is explained from the rotation that Scaloni has applied in the bench, where, for example, Lucas Alario, one of those who had been absent in previous meetings, entered.

In River, likewise, the news did not fall bad, especially considering that on Sunday at 8.15 p.m. the classic against San Lorenzo plays at the Monumental, a key game for Gallardo and company, who will defend the top of the Professional League tournament.
