(ESPN.com) – Boca, who is coming to win at the height of La Paz and adding two consecutive victories after a long time, will visit Huracán this Saturday, on date 11 of Zone 2 of the Professional League Cup, with the intention to get closer to qualifying for the quarterfinals.
The match will be played at the Tomás Adolfo Ducó stadium from 6:00 p.m. and with the refereeing by Silvio Trucco. The clash will be broadcast on TNT Sports.
The Xeneize arrives with confidence after a long time. Last week they beat Atlético Tucumán at home 3-1 and added three important points for the local tournament. And on Wednesday, at the height of La Paz, he defeated The Strongest by 1 to 0 after 51 years without victories in La Paz, in an exciting cup debut.
After showing themselves in much of this 2021 as a predictable team without mobility, the inclusion in the midfield of the youth, Cristian Medina, Alan Varela and Agustín Almendra brought freshness to the team.
Before the Dean last week the team improved a lot with the good movements of the kids, and in La Paz that performance was consolidated. For this reason, DT Russo will put them back at the start, although Almendra, with an annoyance, could be replaced by Jara.
Obando, meanwhile, would play as a starter again, while Fabra, suspended in the Libertadores, will be from the start instead of More.
Rossi will continue on the goal for Andrada (close contact by Covid), in addition to Buffarini, López and Izquierdoz in defense.
In addition, Carlitos Tevez, who did not travel to Bolivia, will be a starter in the team again, adding the hierarchy and experience to all the good things about the xeneizes kids. Sebastián Villa will be his attack duo.
The forced absences of the Colombians Jorman Campuzano and Edwin Cardona, and Nicolás Capaldo, all affected by the Covid, allowed Russo, unexpectedly, to find in the youth the dynamics that the midfield did not have.
Boca is second in the table with 16 points, six behind the leader Vélez, but shares that position with Lanús, Independiente and Talleres. Everything is very even with three dates the end.
Hurricane has 12 points and is still excited about getting among the best four of the group. If he can win the remaining nine, he could enter the quarterfinals, although he has no margin for error.
At the Globe there is no longer Israel Damonte as coach, who was replaced by Frank Kuldeka. The set of Parque Patricios will not have Claudio Yacob, who was infected with Covid. Hurricane comes from losing 2 to 0 last date, against Velez.
The history indicates that they played 153 times, with 80 wins for Boca, 29 for Huracán and 44 draws.
