Sebastián Battaglia took command of Boca Juniors and has a few days of work for his debut, so this Wednesday, he already began to outline a team for the match against Patronato.
In ESPN Soccer 12, Augusto César reported which were the names chosen by the coach and although there is still nothing firm, he anticipated: “Changes are coming”.
In his last game, with a loss to Estudiantes, Miguel Ángel Russo, who stepped down as coach on Monday, had chosen an XI without youth players. With Battaglia, who has just led the Xeneize Reserve, the lower-ranking boys could regain ground.
This Wednesday, Battaglia alternated some names, and although in some positions there would be nothing defined, in others the ex-flyer would already have a marked preference.
On defense, Luis Advíncula would start as a starter, but Marcelo Weigandt was also tested. The rear would remain and, According to Augusto César, Frank Fabra will have a hard time playing, despite the fact that next weekend could be starting. But for the left back, Agustín Sandez and Valentín Barco (today with COVID) are the candidates to stay with the position.
In the midfield the youthful Alan Varela and Cristian Medina would return. Another novelty could be the presence of Aaron Molinas, a player also liked by Battaglia, behind the attackers, who alternated with Norberto Briasco.
And up front, the pair Cristian Pavón with Luis Vázquez tried.
Boca will receive the Board of Trustees on Saturday at 20:15, for the seventh date of the League Tournament.
