La U return to action in the Chilean Apertura tonight against a struggling Everton de Vina side. With players missing due to injuries and international duty, La U manager Marco Antonio Figueroa will have to make do without captain Jose Rojas (missing due to an alleged doping incident) and several other key players such as leading goal scorer Patricio Rubio.
Despite missing several players for this game, there is some good news for La U as Enzo Gutiérrez may play tonight, a welcome return after such a long time out. Gutiérrez linked up very well with his Argentinian compatriot Guastavo Lorenzetti before his long term injury, and I feel when the two play together, La U’s attacking potency is increased significantly.
With an important Copa Sudamericana game against Lanus midweek, Figueroa will be hoping that he can secure the win he requires without losing any more players. Rojas missing is a big loss for Figueroa, however La U’s president has stated that Rojas will be able to play in the Lanus game.
Despite the absences, Figuerora does have a strong squad to choose from and should be able to pick a team that can get the required result against Everton. La U to win @17/20 La U & Over 2.5 match goals @ 6/4
