Argentine striker Franco Di Santo has finally made his first start for new club San Lorenzo in his native Argentina after a long wait.

The 31-year-old has made a slow start to his career at San Lorenzo after injury deprived him of the opportunity to start his career at the club with a bang. Franco Di Santo signed for San Lorenzo on a free transfer in July after leaving Atletico Mineiro in the Brazilian league and he had to wait till November to make his first appearance for his new team due to the aforementioned injury.
Franco Di Santo made his San Lorenzo debut as a substitute for the younger Mariano Peralta at the start of the second half during the league game between hosts San Lorenzo and Argentinos Juniors. Angel Romero scored and assisted a goal as San Lorenzo won 2-0. Mariano Peralta was subbed off again at the start of the second half of the next game to pave the way for Franco Di Santo to make his second appearance in San Lorenzo colours.
His second half introduction didn't do much for San Lorenzo as they played out a goalless draw with hosts Estudiantes. Franco Di Santo made his first start for San Lorenzo when they hosted Aldosivi in a game that ended goalless. The ex-Werder Bremen and Wigan Athletic player was on for the entire duration.
The Argentine striker has failed to find the back of the net in his three games for San Lorenzo but he has the chance to make things right when San Lorenzo start the Championship Round of the 2020/21 league season in Group B with a home game against Tallaresde Cordoba. Franco Di Santo would be hoping to retain his place in the starting line-up for the game scheduled to take place this weekend.
