Boca Juniors I needed to beat Arsenal for two reasons: to ensure the classification to the Libertadores Cup 2022 and to reach the end of the Argentina Cup that will dispute before Cordoba workshops next Wednesday. However, the victory eluded him on the end at the Xeneize (finished 1-1) and the coach Sebastian Battaglia decided to suspend the usual press conference that he usually gives after games.
Minutes after the end of the match at the stadium Julio Humberto Grondona It was reported that the DT of the river bank would not give statements to the media.

The one who did speak was the archer Agustin Rossi, one of the highlights in a poor overall performance. Asked about how the team is doing after what happened during the week, he pointed out: “The group is fine, it has to respond inside the box and I think we have been doing it. Sometimes the results are not given to us, but the important thing is that the group always pushes forward and we hope to finish the year in the best way ”.
“The Cup is a common goal that we all have. When Miguel (Russo) started and Sebastián (Battaglia) grabs as a group, we set ourselves the goal of entering the Cup. We were very far away when we started, but today we have the possibility to enter very close. We are going to try to take advantage of Wednesday’s game, which is a very nice definition and, if not, we have to wait until next weekend ”, he added.
All Boca cannons now point to the final of the Argentine Cup that will be played next Wednesday from 9:10 p.m. at the stadium Mother of Cities of the province of Santiago del Estero. The squad will travel on Tuesday after morning training. In that game the Xeneize He will not only seek to keep the title to add a new trophy to his showcases, but to seal the ticket to the Libertadores Cup.
