(ESPN.com) – Boca will visit Rosario Central this Saturday from 8.15pm and with the arbitration of Fernando Espinoza, for date 10 of the Professional Football League.
The Xeneize arrives with 11 points in the table, eight of the Lanús and Talleres leaders, while Central has 10 units.
Boca is recovering after a bad start to the championship, where he could not count on the starters in two games and lost ground in the fight for the first places.
Already with Sebastián Battaglia after the departure of Miguel Angel Russo, the team recovered with two victories (Patronato and Sarmiento) and a draw, against Racing, on the last date.
For this game, anyway, the coach will make several changes, some of them forced as the case of the right back.
The Peruvian Luis Advíncula, summoned to the selection of Peru, will be absent and his place will be occupied by Marcelo Weigandt.
On the other hand, Jorman Campuzano will enter for Esteban Rolón, while Cristian Medina could do it for another youth, Aaron Molinas. Another possibility is the return of Agustín Almendra in the midfield.
Meanwhile, up front, to accompany Luis Vázquez the chances are divided between Cristian Pavón or Norberto Briasco.
On defense, Agustín Sández will continue on the left side, who seems to have earned the place by relegating Frank Fabra.
On the Central side, the good news is the return of Emiliano Vecchio, one of the team’s figures, recovered after the muscle injury that prevented him from being in the last two games.
The Kily González team will bet on hurting the visitor with an attack that will also have the experienced Marco Ruben. In fact, he will have a tough defense in front, with Carlos Izquierdoz and Marcos Rojo as references.
It will undoubtedly be an intense duel, in a stadium where Boca has not won since 2006. On that occasion they won 2 to 1 with goals from Juan Kuproviesa and Cata Díaz.
The record is favorable to Boca, with 68 victories; Central won 49 and there were 38 draws.
