From 21.30, Mouth will visit Independent for the 22nd date of the Professional Football League tournament. The game, which will be arbitrated by Pablo Echavarría, can be followed by TNT Sports.
It will be a special match that will take place in the renowned stadium Ricardo Bochini. Both teams are pursuing qualification for the international cups, but the Xeneize is much better positioned to achieve the goal of getting a ticket to the Copa Libertadores 2022 since it comes from two consecutive wins (3-0 against Aldosivi and 2-0 against Sarmiento) with which he reached 58 points in the annual table
For its part, the Red suffered a tough defeat on the last date against Central Córdoba in Santiago del Estero that complicates it in its desire to reach at least the passage to the Copa Sudamericana next year. It adds 51 units and is closely followed by Defense and Justice and Gymnastics, which have 49.
Facing the duel tonight in Avellaneda, Sebastián Battaglia could make several modifications in the initial formation. In the last practice before the classic, the Boca coach did not confirm the team that beat Junín last Saturday at the Bombonera. What’s more, it tested changes on all lines.
In defense Lisandro López took the place of Marcos Rojo and Agustín Sández replaced Frank Fabra. In the midfield, the only one who would remain would be Agustín Almendra because I would enter Cristian Medina by Juan Ramírez and Alan Varela would play for Jorman Campuzano. And in the attack zone, the couple that played the last games would come out: Sebastián Villa and Luis Vázquez would not be there from the start, the same as Edwin Cardona, since the DT would change the scheme. Would enter Eduardo Salvio, Norberto Briasco and Cristian Pavon.
For its part, the Julio César Falcioni team knows that a victory against Boca would be a coup in a convulsed end of the year at the club due to the next elections that will take place to choose the new leaders. With an undefeated four home games – he adds two wins and two draws – the coach will not have two footballers who are usually starters. Lucas Romero reached the five yellow cards and will not play. The other who will lose the duel will be Alan Dreaming, who suffered a tear before the last engagement.
Carlos Benavídez or Tomás Pozzo, It would be one of the DT’s doubts to include in the starting eleven that will try to overcome Xeneize in a confrontation with his eyes set on qualifying for the 2022 cups.
