Avoiding Risk Of Suspensions

When Chacarita Jrs visit el Estadio Marcelo Bielsa tomorrow they will be facing a Newell's Old Boys team resting many of their top players. It's not that they need the rest, no, no... it's that the following weekends match will be against Los Canallas, Newell's crosstown archrivals Rosario Central.

With that in mind Sensini is giving several players who are on the verge of yellow card suspensions the day off tomorrow. Players who will not start tomorrow's match due to yellow card accumulation are Mauro Fórmica, as he also has a slight hip injury, Diego Mateo, who took several knocks during the River match, and Jorge Achucarro. The only player that will be on the field that will be carrying four yellow cards into the match will be keeper Sebastián Peratta.

Juan Insaurralde and Marcelo Estigarribia will miss the match against Los Funebreros as they both received yellow card suspensions from the win over River.

The expected lineup:

Sebastián Peratta
Agustín Alayes, Rolando Schiavi, Ignacio Fideleff
Mauricio Sperduti, Hernán Villalba, Lucas Bernardi, Cristian Díaz
Diego Torres, Emanuel Dening, Cristian Núñez

I still don't understand the logic in leaving Joaquín Boghossian out of the starting 11, but if Newell's win, I won't complain.
