Boca returned to training this morning at the Ezeiza Training Center and Sebastián Battaglia ordered a new formal soccer practice. Two days before the first pre-season friendly, the coach tried out with two totally different teams against youth teams.
The first 11, which would be the starter, was formed by Agustin rossi, Luis Advincula, Charles Leftz, Gaston Avila, Frank Fabra; Diego GonzalezAlan Varela, Juan Ramirez; Eduardo sage, Nicholas Orsini and Sebastian town. It is worth noting that Marcos Rojo and Agustín Almendra, who are shaping up to start the year as starters, They did not participate in the practice because they decided to lower the loads on both of them. Although nothing is confirmed, it is likely that neither of them will be present in Monday’s match against Colo Colo.
The second team was made up of soccer players who, with Battaglia, games usually start on the substitute bench: Javier Garcia; Eros Mancuso, Lysander Lopez, Charles Zambrano, Agustin Stupidity; Ezequiel Fernandez, Esteban rollicking, Aaron Mills; Exequiel Zeballos, Luis Vazquez and Walter bou.
