Statement - Néstor Gorosito (Gimnasia's Coach)

"River can change a lot tactically depending on their performers. We take the game like everyone else. We have to play them all to win".

"River is a very dynamic team, with very good feet. They try to press as soon as they lose the ball away from their goal and take advantage of Julian Alvarez's short diagonals behind the center backs, depending on where the ball is coming from. He leaves the front markers in three quarters of the field, Palavecino and Fernández appear by surprise in the area, and Barco and Quintero vary their positions."

"We have a very good squad and several players who can fulfill other roles. Since Cristian Tarragona arrived he has been growing more and more, he can carry the team, but they are different positions."

"We have more or less what everyone sees, River has a way of playing that will not change regardless of who plays, they cut permanently when they do not press."

"The fact that the derby is played next week doesn't change anything. We always have to win, derbies are beautiful, but we have to aim to win every game".

Statement - Marcelo Gallardo (River Plate Coach)

"We are looking to find a way of working with several new players who have come in and need to get some experience, continuity and understanding. We are trying to find our way, to loosen up. The match against Laferre was good to give minutes to players who had not been getting them. I am very satisfied with the team we have".

"I have a lot of number 10's. Hook? I don't know what it means. The creative one, the one who connects lines, the one who is a thinker, the one who has good positioning. We have several of those. The player today has to do a little bit of everything."

"We haven't found that complete match that gives us the freedom to find ourselves completely; we are not confused with a good moment, with the victories. We are in search of the complete match that will give us the click."
