Given the Covid-19 outbreak that almost half of its squad suffers, Boca Juniors is evaluating requesting postponement of its match against Libertad for the Copa Libertadores. Although Conmebol remains firm in the position of not delaying the restart, there is a possibility that could distort this determination and implies a change of dates in the South American Qualifiers.
Diego Monroig in SportsCenter explained it in detail: “In the event that many European clubs refuse to give up their players for the South American Qualifiers, due to the pandemic situation on the continent, and FIFA supports this refusal, the start could be postponed. from the same. This would open a window in the calendar ”.
However, the journalist made it clear that it is simply a “possibility” and “nothing in particular.”
In case FIFA did not decide anything about it, the chances that Conmebol would back down are almost nil and the Copa Libertadores would return on September 15.
This is not another week for Boca Juniors since it was confirmed that almost half of the xeneize campus tested positive for coronavirus and practices were suspended until the new results are available on Thursday.
Miguel Russo left the “bubble” preserving the care of his health and among those affected are the four archers. What happens in the next few days will be key to determine the future of Xeneize.
