After the debut in the League Tournament, Boca Juniors and Miguel Ángel Russo already put their heads in the rematch of the second round of CONMEBOL Libertadores against Atlético Mineiro and the DT decided to repeat the XI of the first leg at La Bombonera.
On Saturday there had been speculation with a variant, since in training Exequiel Zeballos had replaced Norberto Briasco, who had muscular overload and did not train.
However, Russo’s idea of repeating the formation that drew 0-0 at La Bombonera to seek the quarterfinals came to fruition and was revealed an hour before the great rematch.
Thus, Boca starts in Brazil with: Agustín Rossi; Marcelo Weigandt, Carlos Izquierdoz, Marcos Rojo, Agustín Sández; Cristian Medina, Esteban Rolón, Diego González; Cristian Pavón, Norberto Briasco and Sebastián Villa.
Another sector of the Boca world, speculated with a change in tactical drawing, going to a 5-3-2, with the entry of Lisandro López in the places of Briasco and / or the replacement of Agustín Sández by another Agustín, Obando, leaving up to Pavón and Villa.
Xeneize visit Atlético MIneiro at the Mineirao stadium, on Tuesday from 7.15pm, with a live broadcast of ESPN.
