Taking the summer out of the Copa Libertadores de América 2022, when Julio César Falcioni’s team finished first to dream of the crosses, the year of the post-championship in the Colón World has been complicated. Beyond the natural casualties (Aliendro, Lértora, Burián, Beltrán), there is no doubt that there is a malaria of injuries and suspensions that has been worrying for a long time in the sabalera region. In this sense, the “Egg” Rondina can not dribble that “salt” scattered. Now, facing the game in Junín against Sarmiento, he recovers an undisputed starting element such as the destabilizing Eric Meza, but he is left without Paolo Goltz in the background (expelled against Aldosivi) and without Facundo Farías, for whom the decision was made to make him rest so that he can recover from one of the most complicated discomforts for footballers such as intercostal injuries (he had already played the last game with that discomfort).
As for what Colón has “out there”, it is as important as it is relative in the short term. For example, beyond the freshness of little boy Agustín Ojeda on the left side of the field, the definitive recovery of “Chelo” Rafael Delgado and Uruguayan Andrew Teuten is expected. The same with the reinforcement-franchise of this winter market, which is the Colombian Baldomero Perlazza. In principle, the coffee all-camper himself would have had a talk with the “Egg” Sergio Rondina to ask him for “a little time”, looking for his best physical speed to be able to debut with the Sabalero shirt.
It is obvious that in the end Joaquín Novillo will be the natural replacement for the expelled Paolo Duval Goltz and that the attacking team to hurt Sarmiento in Junín will be made up of “Flea” Luis Miguel Rodríguez and the current scorer Ramón Darío Ábila (comes very well “Wanchope” with 4 goals in the team’s last 7 games).
The red one to Goltz took a player and the impetus to Colón
The idea, a priori, of Sergio Rondina is to repeat almost in a traced way what happened in the first 15 minutes against Aldosivi from Mar del Plata in Santa Fe: having the ball, becoming the protagonist, generating goal situations and making them happen. And in the same way, basically, not to abuse the great moment of Ignacio Chicco under the three sabaleros pipes. In other words, to defend better so that the replacement for Leonardo Fabián Burián does not have as much work as he did in La Plata against Gimnasia and the other day against “Tiburón” here in the Cemetery of the Elephants.
It must be remembered that in the eventful start of the “Egg” Rondina cycle (with injuries and sanctions), after the first two draws against Gimnasia de La Plata and Aldosivi de Mar del Plata, Colón will visit Sarmiento de Junín this Saturday at the Eva Perón stadium and then it will be local only on Monday, August 1 at night from 9:30 p.m. against an Independiente de Avellaneda that does not find its way after the departure of Eduardo Rodrigo Domínguez. Possibly the rest time that the coaching staff has will allow them to recover some important players thinking about the match against the red King of Cups, for example what has already been said of the Uruguayan Teuten, Rafael Delgado, the Colombian Perlazza and the “Jewel” Facundo Farías , among others.
What is clear is that, in the midst of so many accidents (losses, injuries, sanctions) Sergio Rondina needs to find some positive sign for Colón in this complicated start to the cycle as Julio César Falcioni’s replacement and current sabalero coach. He will step on an always adverse stage, with a rival like “Green” who maintains his numbers and dreams of permanence for all that he adds in Junín, remembering that he is undefeated in the Eva Perón with a draw and three wins in a row.
Perlazza and the dream of the National Team
From his @baldoperlaza23 account, the Colombian Baldomero Perlazza said goodbye to his last club in Colombia with emotional words: “Everything has its time, and although I don’t like goodbyes, the time has come to do it. I came to Nacional with the illusion of giving the best of me as a professional and as a person. To each and every one of the members of Club Atlético Nacional, from the goalkeeper of the headquarters to the head of the board of directors, my GRATITUDE”.
Then, the sabalero’s coffee reinforcement added: “Today I have the peace of mind of having given everything for the institution and for the team during the time they allowed me to wear their colors. There were two titles achieved with that wonderful group in which I contributed my granite of sand”.
“I feel that the personal and family effort of so many years are rewarded with this opportunity that God gives me, and that I had longed for so much, to play abroad, from where I will continue to represent our country, building my career and fighting for the dream. to wear the colors of the National Team again. To all the fans of Atlético Nacional my respect and recognition. God bless you”.
In this farewell message to the fans of Atlético Nacional, the 30-year-old player indicated that his dream is to once again wear the shirt of the Colombian National Team, where he has already been part of the team that played in the Copa América and the CONMEBOL Qualifiers under the orders of Reinaldo Rueda.
Despite having been part of calls, he has not been able to debut with the Colombian shirt, however he has been part of the substitute bank on 10 occasions. In the Qualifiers to qualify for the 2022 Qatar World Cup, he was a substitute 4 times. In the 2021 Copa América, which took place in Brazil, he was part of the emerging teams in 6 games.
