Zaldivia returns to practice and fights to be a starter

There are only three days left for Colo Colo and Universidad de Chile to take to the field of the El Teniente de Rancagua Stadium to animate version 190 of the Chilean soccer Superclassic, a duel scheduled for this Sunday from 16:30 on the 22nd date of the National Championship .

One who is dying to play this important game is Matías Zaldivia, a defender who He has not seen action with the alba shirt since last August 8, the day he was torn apart in the Cacique’s 2-0 victory over Curicó Unido at the Monumental Stadium.

Fortunately for the Argentine his return to training took place this week before the Superclásico against the blues, duel that has played in vseveral times since his arrival at the Monumental at the beginning of 2016.

Gustavo Quinteros already used it in various defensive works and even It would not be unreasonable to see him in the starting eleven in El Teniente de Rancagua. However, the question falls flat: Who does the teacher remove from the central duo?




At the moment the pair of central defenders is made up of Emiliano Amor and Maximiliano Falcón, who together have shown a great level in the Alba rearguard, giving security to the team and strength when scoring.

Love already knows what it is to play with Zaldivia in defense, since he did it in all the games from his arrival to Matías’s injury. Falcón, for his part, could barely regain the starting position with the latter’s departure.

It will be necessary to see if Quinteros is gambling for giving Matías Zaldivia income despite not playing a game a month and a half ago, especially considering the importance of the Superclásico and the task of marking Joaquín Larrivey, the blues’ main offensive agent and current scorer of the tournament.

At the moment the dawn training for this Sunday will be with Brayan Cortes in the bow; Óscar Opazo, Maximiliano Falcón, Emiliano Amor and Gabriel Suazo in defence; Cesar Fuentes, Leonardo Gil, Gabriel Costa and Pablo Solari in the midfield; Marcos Bolados and Iván Morales up front.

Albos and azul will face each other this Sunday, September 26 in El Teniente de Rancagua starting at 4:30 p.m. and you will be able to follow it LIVE, LIVE and MINUTE BY MINUTE by DaleAlbo.
