River Plate vs Gimnasia La Plata Match Preview
Monday's late game will have a great impact on the relegation fight, for both River Plate and Gimnasia La Plata are struggling to escape from the risk zone and whoever wins this game will be making a declaration of principles and opening an important gap to face the next matches standing on safe ground.
Gimnasia's new coach Pablo Morant wants to explore new possibilities and will be giving Cristian Piarrou an opportunity within the starting squad for the first time in over a year. "It'll be important to return home with at least one point to start our recovery. We cannot return home empty-handed if we want to change the general mood" stated Lobos' midfielder Luciano Aued.
Miguel Angel Cappa is still looking for the perfect formation and will introduce once again modifications in his scheme when Gimnasia visits the Monumental on Monday. Mauro Diaz has won his place within the starting eleven, giving more control of the ball in the midfield, and Mariano Pavone will be joining once again Gabriel Funes Mori on the attack.
Team's promising midfielder Manuel Lanzini is likely to be back in the next weeks and his return will strengthen Millonarios' creation. A must win for both teams, who will leave the Monumental with a smile upon its face?
