Universitario de Deportes experienced a sensitive loss at the last minute before their match against ADT at the Monumental stadium. Williams Riveros, who had become an important piece in the central defense, could not be taken into account by the Uruguayan technical director, Jorge Fossati. This news raised alarms in Ate since ‘Tarzan’ had found the regularity he was looking for and had blended in perfectly with Aldo Corzo and Matías Di Benedetto. The Guarani defender suffered from low back pain due to exertion, according to the medical report published by the team, which occurred last Friday the 17th. Although he was confirmed in the squad for tonight, he did not recover in time after having it waited until the last moment.
At first, the performance of Williams Riveros had raised many doubts, but with each game, he became more comfortable as a libero. He had raised his level with the arrival of Jorge Fossati, and had become a crucial member of the team. However, due to the low back pain he was suffering from, he could not play in the match against ADT.
This news is a setback for Universitario de Deportes as they were hoping to continue the good form they had shown in their previous games. The absence of Williams Riveros will be felt in their defense, but the team will have to find a solution to continue their progress. ‘Tarzan’ will now have to recover and return to full fitness to help his team in their upcoming games.
