The Professional League has already entered its final stretch, in the definition zone, and that is why each of the seven dates that remain to be played will all be finals. That’s how this Atlético Tucumán lives it, who does not give up the fight for the title and who, by dint of victories, changed the concern of averages for big dreams. And coach Lucas Pusineri already knows that in the next game against Estudiantes LP, a goat game by the way, he will lose one of his mainstays: Carlos Lampe. Yes, in ATU they suffer on account…

It happens that the goalkeeper and figure of the Dean will play tonight against Argentinos and then will fly to France to join the Bolivian team, which although it did not qualify for the next World Cup in Qatar will take advantage of the FIFA date to add a friendly: it will be against Senegal, on September 24.
Thus, the ATU main goalkeeper will not be present in the match against Pincha, to be played in Tucumán on Sunday 25, and his place will be taken by Tomás Marchiori. A situation that generated some controversy both in the fans and in the own Carlos Lampe, who did the impossible to join Bolivia as late as possible.

In fact, the goalkeeper himself revealed that he spoke with the coach of the Bolivian team, Pablo Escobarwho “He also understood that I was playing important things here and that I could lose two games. So he gave me the opportunity to leave after the game with Argentinos“.
The truth is that Atlético will not have one of its key men against Pincha -it will be later against Patronato, on 2/10- as Lampe has the shortest goal in the tournament (10 goals, like GELP) and has kept a clean sheet in 12 of the 19 games played. Will the Dean miss him?
