Beyond the good performance of the team in general terms, there was a concern for the team and it was the injury of Jhon Lucumi, who could not continue after pain in the knee of his right leg.

After the pain that Lucumí expressed when leaving Yerry Minathe state of health of the defender was the topic most asked about Nestor Lorenzowho gave a first medical report at a press conference, although he gave good signs by announcing that it does not seem serious.

“What happened with Lucumí seems not to be serious, but we will see the evolution in the coming days”Lorenzo stated.

Opportunity for Yerry Mina

Likewise, the coach gave his opinion on the incorporation of Yerry Mina, who for the first time teamed up with Davinson Sánchez in this current process and highlighted that he had an optimal game.

“There was a little bit of everything, but the movement also had to be done faster. As for the center backs, I said let’s both warm up, I was evaluating how the game was going, who was better, according to the game of the Paraguayans and in the end we decided on Yerry and I think he came in well and played a good game,” concluded Lorenzo.

Now, Néstor Lorenzo will evaluate this week if Jhon Lucumí can be available, although if not, he will have to analyze who replaces him, since there are doubts about whether Carlos Cuesta can be there or whether he gives confidence to Yerry Mina.
