The oldest of the Dos Santos returns to the courts after several physical problems
The Mexican striker Giovani dos Santos received a new opportunity with América and is a starter in the match of this day 13 against Necaxa and make up for the loss due to injury of midfielder Sebastián Córdova.
‘Gio’ dos Santos was not a starter with the azulcrema since date 3 against Juárez, a commitment that the Eagles won by a score of 2-0 on the Azteca Stadium field.
Since that day the footballer has continued with discomfort and injuries that have prevented him from having regularity, so this duel will be his return to the fields after not having minutes in Liga MX since the duel against Atlas on date seven.
Gio will have to make up for the loss of Córdova, who in recent weeks has regained the love of the fans by being one of the heroes of the National Classic against Chivas and in the representative Sub23 he was awarded as the scorer of the Pre-Olympic Tournament.
For this weekend’s game Santiago Solari decided to bet on the ownership by Roger Martínez to take the place of Henry Martín, who was not considered due to the inconvenience he presented with the Mexico National Team.
Henry and Córdova reported last Thursday with the feathered box, but that same day and Friday’s practice they had to work separately due to the discomfort they presented and in this situation they were discarded for this weekend.
América has a good streak at home in the tournament, adding six wins in a row. Solari maintains the base of elements that have been participating in stellar 11. The team that will jump to the Coloso de Santa Úrsula field is made up of:
Guillermo Ochoa, Emanuel Aguilera, Sebastián Cáceres, Jorge Sánchez, Luis Fuentes, Pedro Aquino, Richard Sánchez, Álvaro Fidalgo, Giovani dos Santos, Mauro Lainez and Roger Martínez.
