Newell's Expected Line-Up Vs Huracán - (and Lorente faces the heat)

For the 4th week of the Argentine Apertura 2010, Newell's Old Boys have again drawn a Friday night game. This time it's in Buenos Aires against Huracán, with a start time of 6:10 pm local time, which, if I'm not mistaken, means I'll be lucky if I manage to get home from work in time to see any of the first half.

That said, here's what the media have for tomorrow's anticipated line up for La Lepra:

Sebastián Peratta
Agustín Alayes, Rolando Schiavi, Gabriel Cichero
Mauricio Sperduti, Diego Mateo, Raúl Villalba, Marcelo Estigarribia
Mauro Formica
Luis Rodríguez, Iván Borghello.

Sperduti is back in after a one match suspension (two silly yellows against Lanús,) while La Pulga Rodriguez makes it back into the starting 11 after scoring a second half goal as a second half sub. Hopefully he'll find a way of scoring with out having an opponent that's put themselves two men down.

In other news, Newell's president had to sit down with the police to sort out just who was responsible for the actions of a handful of rowdy fan's who got into it with the media after last week's 2-0 win over Tigre. Nothing specific is mentioned in the official media sources I've seen, but, if I understand things correctly, it all started with a certain procession of fans parading through the stands as the stadium announcer was calling out Newell's line up for the match. That scene wasn't shown during the game's broadcast, but has been posted to Youtube... but for some reason I can't quite get the damn thing to embed. So, one video download, and here you have it:

The police investigation is about the parading of Real Coffins smuggled inside the stadium decorated with ROSARIO CENTRAL flags on it, i guess to celebrate their demise in the second division, even they had a moment of silence to top off the Mockery of Rosario Central. lol better angle of the procession:

Thank you for the clarification on the matter. It's the sort of thing fans would not even think of here in the United States, and even if they did, I doubt that they'd be able to carry it off.

Personally I find it humorous, though some Sinas might not see it that way. That's understandable, I suppose, what, with Bentral having only managed 2 points in the 2 games they've played so far this season they are already at the bottom of the relegation table in the National B.

If they don't start getting some results, before you know it we Lepra might be able to call them Central again.
