Colo Colo fell to Ñublense in the Monumental and without time for regrets, he is already thinking about his next challenge against Palestino on the 24th date of the 2021 National Championship where he hopes to again add 3 points and remain as the exclusive leader in the standings.
For this game, the Cacique will not be able to count on one of its main figures, Emiliano Amor, the defender accumulated his fifth yellow card in the match against Universidad de Chile, so he will be suspended for the match against the tetracolor team.
Matías Zaldivia he suffered from a muscle problem so he is ruled out for the game, Daniel Gutierrez, he trained today, but he’s coming off an injury. Jeyson rojas, who already works normally and was trained in the position of central defender and is an alternative; Bruno GutierrezHe has remained active and has constantly been among the aforementioned, although in the first team he has played only as a winger, he was trained as a center-back and manages the position; Another option is to go back on the pitch to Cesar Fuentes and repeat the pair Pizarro-Gil in the middle of the court. Nicolás Garrido, starter in the U21 match against Barnechea, is also an option.
Another of the doubts of the coaching staff goes through the situation of Gabriel Costa who left the match before the chillanejos in advance. “He ended up with a hamstring strain. He was not at his best, because he was feeling the overload. In the second half he couldn’t take it anymore and asked for the change “, Gustavo Quinteros pointed out at a press conference.
