Racing came with the infirmary only occupied by Juanfer Quintero (right adductor strain), but new members joined. As confirmed by the medical report provided by the club, three last-minute casualties were confirmed, two of them with starters involved: Salas, Mura and Conti in Racing are injured and were ruled out to visit Belgrano this Sunday, in the team’s debut in the Professional League.

The first two, pieces that Gustavo Costas considers essential in the team, have a post-traumatic hematoma in the sacrococcygeal region (the area of ​​the sacrum and coccyx, lower bony parts of the spine) and an entorsis in the right knee, respectively. While the central marker suffered a tear in the femoral biceps of his right leg.

The coach could replace Mura with Gastón Martirena, who has just entered the second half in the 2-1 defeat against Red Bull Bragantino in Brazil, for the fourth round of Group H of the Sudamericana. Another option, more relegated, is for Santiago Solari to return to that area as a winger-midfielder (in case the coach repeats the 3-4-3). Meanwhile, the unknown is who will enter for Salas. The two main candidates are Roger Martínez and Johan Carbonero. Both Colombians entered the ST in the last match and at the end they looked better, somewhat more gravitating. Up to this point, Roger had been the Tank’s first substitute. Will he continue in that condition?

Beyond the injured Mura and Conti, the moment that Salas was spending in Racing

Salas was going through a good time in Racing. He had begun to add goals to his sacrifice as part of his good complementation with Adrián Martínez. But against Bragantino he had a good chance from inside the area and his shot hit a rival defender before going outside. Roger Martínez started for the last time against Talleres de Remedios de Escalada, in the Argentine Cup defeat, and he had to leave the field at halftime as a result of a muscular overload that he felt shortly after the match began. That discomfort affected his level and caused him to train differently as a precaution in one of the week’s practices. But he was available for the crossing with Bragantino.

Mura, in turn, had been an uninterrupted starter for several games. First he did so as a left winger with consistent production. Then when Gabriel Rojas overcame a tear in his left femoral biceps, Facu returned to the right. In Brazil he had problems controlling Henry Mosquera, who faced him and beat him often.

With Conti absent, Leonardo Sigali is likely to regain a place on the substitutes’ bench after traveling to Brazil with the delegation and being sidelined from the 23 along with Iván Pillud, Santiago Quirós, Tobías Rubio and Agustín Urzi.

Beyond the obligatory variations, it is not ruled out that the coach performs some more for tactical reasons linked to low performance. The Academy played poorly again against Bragantino and left concern with the second consecutive defeat. It came from the hard blow of being eliminated from the Argentine Cup due to a 2-1 loss to Talleres de Remedios de Escalada (First National), in the 16th round.
