It started the week before the superclásico and in River They began to cross their fingers more strongly. Because although the team comes from thrashing Gimnasia and arrives on Sunday, Marcelo Gallardo still have a question: if you can count on David Martínez, a key piece in the defense. The defender recovers from a left knee lateral ligament strain and could be discharged days before the duel against Mouthalthough its inactivity of almost a month generates uncertainty.
is that the injury occurred 22 days ago and the defender still had no contact with the ball: hardly did physical work in order to speed up recovery. For this reason, the next few hours will be key: after the day off that the coaching staff decided to give the players this Monday, on Tuesday they will return to training at the Camp and Martínez will be required to know if he has a chance to play against Boca.
“It is very rushed to know if he is going to be in the superclásico, because although he has been evolving, he has not been training with the squad. Nor am I going to rush anyone and commit an imprudence”said Gallant post win against Gymnastics, avoiding giving a hasty diagnosis about the only question he has thinking about the 11 that will go on the field against Boca.
In the event that the result of the evaluation carried out this week on Martinez be negative and cannot be in the Super classicit’s very probable that Gallardo repeat the team that comes from winning this Sunday and that, therefore, Leandro Gonzalez Pirez assert himself behind as his replacement.
Martinez’s representative was positive
“David is very well. He is doing recovery tasks with Bombicino and with the work he is doing he feels very good. It doesn’t hurt at all, but he still needs to get on the field and catch the ball,” the agent assured in a chat with How You goes (AM 550).
