The training this Tuesday morning at Boca Juniors cleared up some doubts regarding the formation that Miguel Ángel Russo will put tomorrow to seek a new joy against River for the Argentine Cup and the main novelties in the list of concentrates are the presence of Luis Advíncula, who could have his debut, and the Colombian Edwin Cardona, who re-enters a call, after the delay in his return to Argentina, after completing his participation in the Copa América.
On the side of absences, there are the expected Sebastián Villa (who seems to have no return in his situation with the club) and that of Frank Fabra, who was not on the list of the last match against Talleres. Nor will Nicolás Orsini be part of the game, due to some physical problems that he drags.

Xeneize trained in the morning at the Ezeiza site, where Russo finished testing and deciding who will be against River. Waiting for the confirmation of the transfer of Advíncula, the Peruvian is among those called up for the Superclásico and could have his premiere in no more and no less than in a meeting of such magnitude. In addition, the absence of Fabra enhances the possibilities of Valentín Barco in the left sector of the defense, whether with two or three centrals, the doubt that still persists in Boca.
In the middle of the field there are some questions and what Russo had to solve today is who will be the central midfielder. Since his arrival, Esteban Rolón has earned a place among the headlines, but Alan Varela’s good performances in the first semester give him possibilities. Juan Ramírez seems to have earned a place with a handful of training sessions and his debut in Córdoba, and there would be no doubts above, because there are not many variants either: Pavón and Briasco.
After practice, the squad had lunch at the Ezeiza property and then the concentrates will go to the hotel to wait for tomorrow’s momentous duel against River, where Xeneize plays an important part of the semester, after having stayed out of the Libertadores Cup.
Although Russo did not give a glimpse of what system, or which players he will use, there is speculation about which team the DT would stop. If you decide to play with four behind, the names would be Agustín Rossi; Marcelo Weigandt or Luis Advíncula, Carlos Izquierdoz, Marcos Rojo, Valentín Barco; Diego González, Esteban Rolón or Alan Varela, Cristian Medina, Juan Ramírez; Cristian Pavón and Norberto Briasco.
If he is inclined to use a line of three, they would play: Agustín Rossi; Marcelo Weigandt or Luis Advíncula, Carlos Zambrano, Carlos Izquierdoz, Marcos Rojo, Valentín Barco; Diego González, Esteban Rolón or Alan Varela, Juan Ramírez; Cristian Pavón and Norberto Briasco.
