Right after the press conference, the team head down to the São Januário Stadium, the home of Vasco da Gama where they had their last practice session.
Alejandro SABELLA did mention during the press conference that Angel DI MARIA has been improving but he will need to be further evaluated (during the training session) on whether he will be available to start on Sunday.
During the session, he was seen training together with the first team and even participated in the tactical trial. However it was reported he still wasn’t too comfortable and felt pain on his right thigh. So it looks like, he won’t be part of the starting line up but question still remains if he could make it to the bench. We will continue to keep you posted on anything latest.
With that said, Enzo PEREZ will retain his place and the probable line up will be as follows: -
Sergio ROMERO; Pablo ZABALETA, Ezequiel GARAY, Martin DEMICHELIS, Marcos ROJO; Javier MASCHERANO, Lucas BIGLIA, Enzo PEREZ; Lionel MESSI, Ezequiel LAVEZZI and Gonzalo HIGUAIN
