Libertad and Boca are preparing to meet in Asunción next Thursday for the return of the Copa Libertadores, in a meeting that has generated a lot of expectation to see how Xeneize will arrive after suffering a massive contagion of Covid-19 in the squad.
Rubén Di Tore, president of Gumarelo, once again referred to the favorable situation his team is in for arriving with more competitive pace and declared: “If we look at it from that point of view, there may be an advantage”.
“I think it will be a very close match, fought. Whoever makes the fewest mistakes will win. Being favorites sometimes plays in your favor and sometimes against, “he added in dialogue with FOX Sports Radio.
However, this time the leader went beyond this duel and also referred to the next one, when the Paraguayan cast has to travel to Argentina: “It is undoubtedly a relief to play without an audience in La Bombonera.”
“I was in the locker room and it is true that the stands are shaking. It is a very important contribution for the Boca player who is used to that ”, he explained.

“In all this process since we applied the protocol again, it is the second case we have,” he added.
