(ESPN.com) – Boca will visit Unión de Santa Fe this Sunday, thinking of adding a new victory to consolidate itself in the qualifying zone of the Professional League Cup, for the ninth date of Zone 2.
The game will be played this Sunday starting at 6.30 pm at the April 15 stadium, with the refereeing by Fernando Espinoza and the televising of Fox Sports Premium.
Boca beat Defensa y Justicia by 2 to 1 last week and was able to win after three months without victories at La Bombonera, but the team’s performance remains a pending account.
Boca has 13 points, but he knows that he cannot relax if he does not want to complicate his passage to the quarterfinals. Tatengue, meanwhile, has 11, and was undefeated until last date, when it was defeated by Vélez 4 to 1.
The xeneize will face this match with good news: Edwin Cardona will return. The Colombian had been torn apart in the 7-1 victory against Velez, on March 7, and was unable to play the last few days.
From what he had been contributing with the ball stopped, plus the vision of the game that is always a plus at the wheel, Cardona can be a key piece for this moment of Boca, which needs to recover from football.
Miguel Angel Russo will also make other changes. Nicolás Capaldo, who was infected with coronavirus, will be absent and his place would be occupied by Julio Buffarini. Campuzano and Almendra will form the double five, with Tevez and Villa in attack.
On the Union side, coach Juan Manuel Azconzábal will make at least two changes, both of which are mandatory: Jonathan Galván will not be in defense, with a tear, and Franco Calderón, sent off against Vélez last day.
The history indicates that they played 61 games, with 34 victories for Boca, only 13 for Union, and 14 draws.
