The Professional League of Argentine soccer would have already decided that it will not postpone the games to Boca Juniors, which has its professional squad isolated after the return from Brazil and will have to play as scheduled.
In ESPN F12Esteban Edul announced that, despite the fact that the AFA would like to “help” the xeneize squad after its chaotic elimination from CONMEBOL Libertadores, it is the League that has the last word.
The panelist of the show hosted by Mariano Closs explained that the position of the LPF is that “there are no exceptions for anyone.” Just as he did not do them for other teams that asked for postponements due to their international commitments or because of Covid outbreaks, this time, he will not do it either.
In addition, for the League, “the responsibility for what happened was Boca.”
The xeneize squad must comply with the isolation by provision of the Ministry of Health of Argentina, which considered that the bubble in Brazil was broken, due to the “contact outside the stipulated” that occurred at the end of the match against Atlético Mineiro, when sparked a fight that led to the transfer of several players to a Brazilian police station.
From the consulate in Belo Horizonte and with the endorsement of CONMEBOL, it had been ensured that the bubble of the Xeneize delegation had been maintained. But it could be considered that the isolation was broken at the time of giving statements at the police station.
Meanwhile, Augusto César counted in ESPN F12, that in Boca they were confident that they were not going to play this weekend, that Sebastián Battaglia trained the Reserve and made the call for the category match on Friday.
With the decision of the Professional League, Xeneize must appeal to its youth to face Saturday’s game against Banfield and next Tuesday against San Lorenzo.
