Christian Santos adds variants to the formation of Colo Colo

Christian Santos made his debut with the Colo Colo jersey in the victory against Palestino. After long months of waiting, the Venezuelan became the long-awaited center-forward requested by Gustavo Quinteros to whom he opens up different possibilities to develop the star eleven of the popular cast.

One of the possibilities is to play with two area men. Situation that would not remove Iván Morales from star 11. This idea has been expressed on more than one occasion by the Chieftain’s technical director, mainly because the playing characteristics of both players complement each other. The Venezuelan is more of an attacking reference, while the one formed in the Monumental tends to lag behind and open up to the bands.

In this way, a probable formation, having all the players available, would be with a 4-3-2 composed of: Brayan Cortés; Oscar Opazo, Maximiliano Falcón, Emiliano Amor and Gabriel Suazo in defense; Cesar Fuentes, Marcos Bolados (Pablo Solari), Leonardo Gil, Gabriel Costa; Iván Morales and Christian Santos

Another alternative is to use Santos as the only striker and play with two wide open ends. For the bands, the albos add specialists: Pablo Solari, Marcos Bolados, Gabriel Costa and Joan Cruz can fulfill that function and fill the attacker with centers.




With this scheme, the team would be with: Brayan Cortés; Oscar Opazo, Maximiliano Falcón, Emiliano Amor, Gabriel Suazo; Cesar Fuentes, Leonardo Gil; Marcos Bolados, Gabriel Costa, Pablo Solari and Christian Santos.

It should be remembered that for the next match against Huachipato, the Cacique will not be able to count on Gabriel Costa who was summoned to the Peruvian team for the 2022 Qatar Qualifying matches.
