Sebastián Battaglia surprised in the last practice before the match against Independiente, this Wednesday in Avellaneda, and enlisted a team with seven changes Regarding those who come from defeating Sarmiento de Junín, last Saturday at the Bombonera. The coach of Boca Juniors kicks the board in the face of a match that could be key to the fight to qualify for the next Copa Libertadores. Talleres de Córdoba lost to Gimnasia and if Xeneize beats Rojo, it will surpass it in the Annual Table, occupying a position that provides a ticket to continuous competition.
Despite this, Battaglia appealed for the changes due to the string of encounters. Boca has already defined its commitment for the weekend: it will be on Sunday, November 28, from 9:30 p.m., before Newell’s in the Bombonera, the third game in eight days. The closing of the Professional League will be before Arsenal in Sarandí and against Central Córdoba of Santiago del Estero in local condition (dates and times to be confirmed). In the middle of these last two matches, I would dispute the final of the Argentine Cup (Wednesday, December 8?) Against Talleres de Córdoba or Godoy Cruz de Mendoza, teams that will meet for the remaining semifinal on Wednesday 1/12.
Agustín Rossi will remain in the goal and will also repeat Luis Advíncula, as right back, and Carlos Izquierdoz in the central defense. While, will enter Lisandro López accompanying Cali and Agustín Sandez, as left marker, replacing Marcos Rojo and Frank Fabra.
In midfield, he would only repeat Agustín Almendra, since Cristian Medina and Alan Varela would play instead Jorman Campuzano and Juan Ramírez. Furthermore, with the entry of Eduardo Salvio by Edwin Cardona, DT change the scheme to a 4-3-3. In this way, Toto will be in the lead along with Norberto Briasco and Cristian Pavón, replacing Luis Vázquez and Sebastián Villa.
It is worth remembering that Sebastián Battaglia had already surprised by providing the list of concentrates for this encounter with two striking absences: Exequiel Zeballos and Rodrigo Montes. The juveniles will have filming tomorrow morning at the Villa Domínico estate that has the Red, when from 9 o’clock the Reserve teams meet. Both will be headlines in the cast led by Hugo Ibarra and Mauricio Serna, who will defend the top of the championship.
Although the coach takes them into consideration, the Little changu is behind the other extremes that the campus has as Sebastián Villa, Cristian Pavón and Norberto Briasco, while in the midfield area he opted for other variants (Agustín Almendra, Juan Ramírez, Diego González and Cristian Medina) over that of Montes, who reaped many minutes in several meetings this season. Probably due to current events, the lack of the Santiago native, who came from convert a hattrick in Reserve in the 4-4 draw against Sarmiento after being summoned by the Argentine national team.
Boca Juniors accumulates three victories in a row and this Wednesday from 9:30 p.m. at the Libertadores de América stadium, with arbitration by Pablo Echavarría, on the 22nd date of the Professional League, he will go for another three points that allow him to get on the podium in the Table Annual. Xeneize has 58 points in the annual table and at the moment it is two from the last direct qualifying place, while Independiente is more complicated since it is seven from its rival and nine from the access positions when twelve remain at stake. .
The two teams, however, could benefit from the quotas that will open if River Plate finally becomes champion of the 2021 tournament or even if Boca manages to win the Argentine Cup.
