During training this week at racing club there was a positive signal regarding the physical state of Paolo Guerrero: He was already working normally –he even scored a great header last Wednesday– and his call-up for the match against Tiger It only depended on Fernando Gago’s decision. So, finally this happened and the ‘Predator’ entered the list in good faith for this duel for the date 3 of the Argentine Professional League 2023.
“The thing about Paolo (Guerrero), tomorrow (Saturday) we will finish evaluating it. It will be seen the feeling that he has and what I think. I think I’ll make a decision soon”, stated ‘Pintita’ last Friday when asked about Paolo’s present. The lack of a goal for his team has been one of the main problems during this start of the Argentine championship, which is why the call-up for the former Flamengo striker fell out of reach.
Because he does not have the football rhythm of other times, Guerrero will most likely start on the substitute bench waiting for an opportunity to enter. In the two games that Racing has played in the Argentine Professional League, they have not scored a single goal and have barely gotten a point, so adding three against Tigre is of vital importance for them, especially since they will play at home in the Cilindro de Avellaneda.
Let’s remember that Paul He last played for his club, Avaí, in the 2-1 defeat against Atlético Goianense on October 1, 2022. Since that date, after the worsening of his knee injury, the ‘Predator’ missed the following eight games and saw his team go down to Serie B in Brazil.
Racing Club’s goal for 2023
One of the great objectives of racing club for this season it will be to be the protagonist of the 2023 Copa Libertadores. After having been close to winning the 2022 Argentine Professional League, the managers of the ‘Academy’ aim high and want to make that leap internationally.
For the latter, the arrival of Paul It will be key, since they trust that it can provide them with that hierarchy quota that every big team needs in their offense and generate spaces between the opposing defenses to achieve the greatest number of goals possible. If everything goes as the Peruvian attacker wants, tonight he will have his long-awaited debut in front of his fans.
