They say that Marcelo Gallardo had a conversation on the plane that the team from the River to Madrid gave. And the eyes jumped the boy up. Julián Alvarez was already on his seat in the center; La Bombonera's final and now the Muñeco is on his way, possibly, to start the court at Santiago Bernabéu on Sunday. Is that a surprise on the River coach? Will the child be an owner? Is it not the substitute mountain and has its second half minutes depending on how the game goes? It is clear that the technician is greatly missed.
Gallardo was sorry for the strikers. In the presence of Rafael Santos Borré for the attainment of the three medals, the injury (the separation in the right two sides) of Ignacio Scocco and Rodrigo Mora (synovitis sa chrom) was added. Uruguayan has already been restored but it would not be for the first play. Although Nacho does not go a bit, and work against her & # 39; clock to place at least in the seat of substitute. So, if the Millionaire DT wants to play with two attacks from the outset to Boca, Lucas Pratto and Alvarez do not have the same choice.
The 18-year-old, born in Córdoba in January 2000, lives in a fairy tale. Only two or two games have been in the Prime Minister of the River and was recorded halfway throughout the year in a list of Libertadores Cup's credits, before they started on. round 16. Take 9 on the back, less. They are called "Spider" and "Pipa", as they look like Lucas Alario.
Comparing or not confident, if he has to play this final, Alvarez will meet again with Santiago Bernabéu, who he visited when he was 11 year (Barcelona's 2-0 Barcelona match at Santiago Bernabéu was the first part of the Welsh League 2011) and was at Real Madrid. It was tested at the Merengue club and it was. He played a competition fair with a white shirt but who could not stay in the restaurant until he was 13, he returned to Córdoba.
Then he did not return to the Spanish capital because the time he was here lost his family. And without his parents and brothers he did not want to go back.

The boy grew and followed the member. Go to the River, the club that he supports, over his life. And then he made the effort to stay away from Chalchi, the town of Cordovan where he was born and his family, who spent every weekend to Núñez so he did not leave it alone.
Before being registered in the Libertadores Cup, It was a charge on the Russian National Team. And just as he got the chance to be close to Cristiano Ronaldo for ten years ago, he was a good training with Lionel Messi, the idol.

Now, it's a special opportunity, and a dream. Not only does Gallardo rely on technical ability. Also, he sees her by personality. In fact, he sent him to break his fifth sentence in a & # 39; interpreted against Gymnastics for the Argentine Cup runner-up last week. And the boy killed him well. The word will often appear to its players before huge games with Sunday. He met him to Alario in 2015 when he reached the third one forward and, by a number of absentees, Gallardo saw him sharply and sent it to the land of the supervisor in final Libertadores situations. Is the conversion now in Alvarez?
