Arsenal de Sarandí is one of the friendliest clubs that scheduled this preseason to add filming thinking about the start of the Professional League. But, their players are – like those of most Argentine soccer teams – paying the break of so many months. Now, the club communicated through its social networks that Jhonathan Candia, Ramiro Balbuena and Leonel Picco are injured and will not be in this Saturday’s friendly against Argentinos Juniors in La Paternal.
The Uruguayan forward suffers from a tear in his right hamstring, as does midfielder Ramiro Balbuena (although on the left). Both would be approximately three weeks outside the courts. Picco, for his part, has a strain in one of his abductors and his recovery would take about 15 days. These are added to the reinforcement Julián Navas, who is making progress in recovering from his tear.
For this reason, Sergio Rondina will have to make mandatory changes to his team for the next commitments and players who ran behind will have their great opportunity to be considered on a par with the starters who are injured today. With some from the bank, will Sarandí’s club win for the first time?
