One of the qualities that coach Mauricio Larriera values in his players is that they have the versatility to play in different positions on the field without weakening the team’s equipment on the way to success. For this reason, he has the certainty that the players called up for the game against Carlos Mannucci on matchday 15 of the Clausura tournament will not only cover the absences of Jesús Castillo and Bryan Reyna – they are injured – but will also perform in In the plan he outlines another victory for Alianza Lima.

The Uruguayan coach is looking for the ideal performance in which his team dominates the opposition for long periods of the game and defeats them by scoring goals effectively, thus demonstrating the authority that so excites them in the face of the three. Time League 1 Bettson Championship. .
With two strikers
Larriera will use the 4-4-2 system, unprecedented on this important date, relying on Aldair Rodríguez and Hernán Barcos to score his goals. The idea of the DT is that both always put pressure on the “Carlists” to leave.
And as Depor announced, Jairo Concha will play in the first line of midfield, while Christian Cueva will not enter the “11” for the time being and will be replaced by Gabriel Costa. Two training sessions for the starters also still need to be confirmed.
However, if everything remains as it is, the eleven that would start the game this Sunday at the Mansiche Stadium (Trujillo) would be the following: Campos; Peruzzi, Zambrano, Vìlchez, Lagos; Ballón, Concha, Zanelatto, Costa; Rodriguez and Barcos.
The “ace” up your sleeve
According to Depor, Christian Cueva will not compete against Mannucci in Alianza. Coach Mauricio Larriera decided that “Aladino” should be among the substitutes on this occasion as a key player in the search for the three points.
The decision is surprising because since the coach took over the team six games ago, Cueva was considered a regular starter: he appeared against Cusco FC, Sport Huancayo, Alianza Atlético, Cantolao and Unión Comercio. He just went to the bench and entered in front of Cienciano.
In all the games he played, Cueva played as a midfielder, in the 4-4-2 playing system, with the exception of the last duel against “Poderoso”, where he was used as a midfielder on the left and was replaced by Costa on the 67′.
It should be noted that the coach values Cueva very much and has always emphasized his hierarchy, but this time he would bet on Jairo Concha as the only “brain”. In addition, he has an “ace” up his sleeve to achieve the victory that fuels the illusion of winning the Clausura and the three-time championship.
