Boca Juniors, who has his professional staff isolated after the return from Brazil, published a statement this Thursday in which he announced that the match will not be played against Banfield, as Marcelo Tinelli, president of the Professional League.
Xeneize had asked to postpone the matches corresponding to the local tournament after the scandal that occurred after the elimination of the CONMEBOL Libertadores, in which several of its players were summoned to testify and the Ministry of Health considered that they had broken the health bubble.
The statement, in addition to referring to the postponement of the meeting, ensures that, in case of having to play, “the first-class professional team will carry out the corresponding PCRs, and will play the game“, while clarifying to the Ministry of Health that”at no time did the bubble burst. This has been confirmed in a Conmebol report made by Frederico Nantes, Director of Club Competitions, and through a letter signed by Consul General Santiago Muñoz Martinez in Belo Horizonte. “
