Boca’s race to qualify for the Copa Libertadores 2022
Already classified to the Copa Sudamericana next year for having been the champion of the Maradona Cup, Sebastián Battaglia’s team is now looking for a pass to Libertadores 2022 (he would not play the other Cup if he succeeds) and has in the championship of the Professional League – in addition to the direct pass through the Argentine Cup – the chance to continue adding for the general, with the aim of getting among the top three and winning the ticket to the continental competition.
With the defeat against Independiente, the Xeneize remains fifth with 58 units in the annual table and for the moment it would be classified. This is because, for now and as long as it ends up being consecrated in the local tournament, River (first with 70 points) will release your quota, as well as what happens with Colón (fourth with 60) for having been the champion of the Professional League Cup. Then, the whole of the Ribera would enter with the last place, behind Vélez (second with 69) and Talleres (third with 60), the other two that are earning a place.
The teams that are in the fight and closely follow Boca for a place in the Libertadores next year are: Estudiantes (57), Independiente (54) and Lanús (54).
