It’s a fact: started with the Mouth by Sebastian Battaglia. After a good final sprint in the group stage of the Professional League Cup and the victory in Bolivia over Always Ready that put them on track in the Libertadores, Xeneize had to pass their first big test of the year and far surpassed it: against In Defense and Justice, in the quarter-finals of the local tournament, the Ribera team played their best game of 2022 and reached the semi-finals with great authority.
Full agenda: when does Boca play?
Now in the semi-finals, Boca will have to make a difficult stop against Racing, who finished best in the first stage and finished in the top four with a resounding win over Aldosivi. The meeting was finally confirmed to be played on Saturday, May 14 from 5 p.m. in the Lanús Stadium.
THE NAMED OF BOCA
The win over Halcón in La Bombonera ensured that Battaglia did not get injured or suspended, so to face the Academy he will not only have the same players available for Tuesday’s game, but he will also recover Carlos Izquierdoz, who was about to be taken on the payroll for the last game, but it was eventually decided that he would have a few more days off to recover from his lumbar problem, as Marcelo Weigandt, who left a sprained ankle and is available again.
In total, the DT has decided to call up 25 football players
THE TRAINING OF THE MOUTH
After the great collective performance against Defence, the coach will make a switch to Racing.
With Izquierdoz recovered, the possibility opened up that he would return to the starting lineup in place of Carlos Zambrano. However, during rehearsals on Thursday and Friday, the DT confirmed the Peruvian’s confidence, with a very good performance against Beccacece’s team.
Where there will be variation is in the middle, where Battaglia handed the title back to Juan Ramírez after his very good start against Halcón (including a goal), leaving Eduardo Salvio between the substitutes and Óscar Romero running all the way to the right. †
The eleven confirmed for Saturday? Augustin Rossi; Luis Advincula, Carlos Zambrano, Marcos Rojo, Frank Fabra; Pol Fernandez, Alan Varela, Juan Ramirez; Oscar Romero, Sebastian Villa and Dario Benedetto.
