It was finally confirmed: Sebastián Villa returns to Boca’s call for Sunday’s game against Newell’s, in Rosario.
The Colombian midfielder was excluded from the first team by a club decision, having been prosecuted in a case for gender violence. The case continues in court, but in recent weeks, the player’s ex-girlfriend showed a more conciliatory stance on social networks, so Villa would have another opportunity in Boca. However, the judicial process cannot be undone.
Sebastián Villa will travel to Rosario, but Edwin Cardona would be the one who would start playing. According to information from Emiliano Raddi in SportsCenter, Miguel Ángel Russo would give the midfielder a few minutes. The last time Villa played in Boca was on March 10 against Independiente Medellín, for CONMEBOL Libertadores.
The other important novelties of Boca’s list of concentrates are that Esteban Andrada is already recovered from his injury and will be able to start, and Ramón Ábila also goes to Rosario, despite not having been able to complete training on Friday.
While, The three-date sanction that CONMEBOL imposed on Carlos Zambrano for three dates, left him out of the Peruvian National Team on the next date of the South American Qualifiers, and that could put him in Boca’s starting team against Newell’s instead of Lisandro López.
Boca will visit Newell’s this Sunday, from 9:15 p.m. in Rosario, for the second date of the Professional League Cup.
