The return of Carlos Tevez to the starting position would be the biggest novelty in the Boca Juniors team to face Vélez Sarsfield this Sunday.
The list of summoned that came out this Saturday confirmed that the Apache will be available for the meeting, after having missed the games with Newell’s and Samiento and a week of training, due to the leave that was taken due to the death of his father.
But, despite the doubts that this long absence triggered, Tevez resumed normal practices last Tuesday and Russo would count on him as a starter for the next match, given the poor image of the team in the tight victory over Claypole for the Argentine Cup.
As Emiliano Raddi anticipated in SportsCenter, DT would not make a radical change in the eleven, compared to the last one who played for the League Cup.
Carlos Tevez will take the place due to the loss of Eduardo Salvio, who suffered a serious knee injury and in defense, Lisandro López will replace Carlos Izquierdoz in the rear, with a strong blow to the ribs.
Thus, Boca’s starting eleven would be: Esteban Andrada; Nicolás Capaldo, Lisandro López, Carlos Zambrano, Frank Fabra; Sebastián Villa, Jorman Campuzano, Cristian Medina, Carlos Tevez, Edwin Cardona; Mauro Zarate.
Boca will visit Vélez on Sunday from 9:30 p.m. for the fourth date of the League Cup.
