Ramón Ábila did not receive good news this Friday, because it was confirmed that he has a grade 2 muscle injury in the anterior rectus of the left thigh. With this complication, Miguel Ángel Russo would lose it for the first Xeneize presentations at CONMEBOL Libertadores.
Wanchope is a key piece for the assembly of the coach of the Boca squad, so his absence for a few weeks in the planning of the team for CONMEBOL Libertadores will be an inconvenience. Since his arrival in Boca, the Cordovan contributed 30 goals in 72 presentations.
In this transfer market, Boca got one more loan from Franco Soldano, but also lost Jan Hurtado, who went to Red Bull Bragantino in Brazil. Meanwhile, Carlos Tevez, Eduardo Salvio, Mauro Zárate, Mateo Retegui, Walter Bou and the native of Sunchales are the attackers that ‘Miguel’ will have available in the first duels for the last Argentine soccer champion in CONMEBOL Libertadores.
It is worth noting that both Walter Bou (firm interest on the part of Defense and Justice) and Retegui could leave the club in the next few hours, so the margin of variants would shrink for the technical driver of Xeneize.
Boca is part of Group H of CONMEBOL Libertadores, which it shares with DIM, Caracas and Libertad. Before the start of the pandemic, ‘Miguel’s team had four points, the product of a draw in Venezuela and a victory in La Bombonera over the Medellín team.
Next Thursday, September 17 at 9:00 p.m. the first match of Xeneize will be held at CONMEBOL Libertadores after the interruption by the Covid-19 pandemic, a commitment for which Wanchope is already practically ruled out.
According to the evolution of ex-Cruzeiro and Huracán, among others, it will be known if he will be available for the duel on September 24, when Miguel Ángel Russo’s team travels to Colombia to face DIM.
