Possible Line Up For Newell's 2010 Apertura Opener

Here's what ESPNDeportes is listing as the probable starting line up for Newell's Old Boys opening match against Estudiantes tomorrow:

Sebastián Peratta
Agustín Alayes, Rolando Schiavi, Gabriel Cichero
Mauricio Sperduti, Diego Mateo, Hernán Villalba, Marcelo Estigarribia
Mauro Formica
Luis Rodríguez y Sebastián Taborda

Villalba is in for Lucas Bernardi, Estigarribia in Leonel Vangioni's place. Vangioni suffered a rather serious injury early in the preseason. Bernardi, just recently injured, does not seem as serious, as his situation seems to be on a day to day basis.

New faces in the line up would be Cichero on defense, and Rodrigues and Toborda up front. This isn't official, as Roberto Sensini is keeping silent on the matter... other than confirming that Villalba is in.

And, finally, I have to point you all to Jeremy's blog covering Newell's at, for proof that our captain Rolando Schiavi isn't only a great defender, but a bit of a comedian as well.

Dang this slow internet connection in Haiti. I'm reduced to following along on ESPN.
