MATCH PREVIEW: Millonarios – Jaguares

Millonarios has started a bit strong this season. They lost the first match against Envigado 2-1 in Bogota and won against Once Caldas 1-0 and 2-1 against Atletico Bucaramanga. The fans expect to see the team continue with their winning streak as they did last season.

Jorge Luis Pinto had mentioned in the press conference that the front office is still looking for a #9 striker. Cristian Arango had also said that Jorge Luis Pinto expects him to play more as a #9 player, but he could also play as a secondary striker. The fans are showing their discomfort with the quality of the players in the team through social media. The manager had already expressed that he’s happy with the team and it would be nice to add another striker to the roster.

Earlier this week, Juan Camilo Salazar signed for Millonarios again after spending six months with San Lorenzo de Almagro in Argentina. The player mentioned that this Juan Camilo is more mature, has more experience, and more humble. Earlier this year, Jorge Luis Pinto had used Juan Camilo Salazar as a 10/secondary striker. He will not be available for today’s game. The Colombian Football Federation had called up Breiner Paz and Juan Camilo Salazar for a couple of training sessions as a preparation for CONMEBOL Pre-Olympic Tournament in 2020.

Predicted Lineup:

Jefersson Martinez; Andres Roman, Deivy Balanta, Alex Rambal, Felipe Banguero; Felipe Jaramillo, Jhon Duque (C); Hansel Zapata, David Silva, Juan David Perez; and Cristian Arango
