Néstor Fabbri, former Racing defender, analyzed the round of 16 draw of the CONMEBOL Libertadores that threw Flamengo as a rival of The Academy. He also referred to the rivals of River and Boca.
In dialogue with the radio program “How are you doing?” of Radio Colonia, the former champion player with Racing of the 1988 Super Cup noted: “It was not the best draw for Racing, but we knew that he had narrower chances than the others because he was in cup 2”.
Although as a positive point, Fabbri stressed: “If the desire is to be champion and be at the top of the Libertadores, it is a way to start and eliminate an important Brazilian, the last champion.”
“Then The key was not easy either because it is International or Boca’s turn, but if you want to be champion you have to beat them all”, He added about the complexity of that part of the painting for La Academia.
“A priori the key that River was given is more accessible, except Palmeiras who could touch him in the semifinals ”, Fabbri stressed about the key in which the Millionaire fell.
From his past in Boca between 1994 and 1998, Fabbri compared the rivals that Xeneize and Gallardo’s team must face: “Internacional is a little more armed than Paranaense. Anyway, the big favorites are always the same”.
Néstor also referred to the news of the three Argentine teams that are still in the race in Conmebol Libertadores and highlighted Carlos Tevez, in Boca, and Lisandro López, in Racing: “River has a very important performance. Then what Tevez is doing in Boca is impressive. When Lisandro López enters Racing, he changes the face of football, with two touches you realize that football is easy ”.
