Ariel Ortega returned to training yesterday. He kept up with his teammates at the practice session in the Estadio Monumental and left without talking to the press. He could be in the starting lineup on Thursday night when River Plate take on Brazil's Atletico Paranaense in the second-leg of their Copa Sudamericana round of 16 match. While there have been rumors as to why he asked for the week off leading up to the Boca game, there has been no confirmation of anything as of yet. [TyC Sports (Spanish) and Eurosport]
