Boca Juniors have to travel to Tucumán to play with Atlético on Saturday for the La Liga Tournament and Sebastián Battaglia would preserve most of the starters, to give priority to the Argentine Cup.
It was confirmed that Marcelo Weigandt has a grade 2 tear in the left adductor, so the DT was going to have a forced change. Emiliano Raddi detailed in SportsCenter AM that Luis Advíncula ends his isolation -after the trip with the Peruvian National Team- on Friday, the day the team will travel to the North. But if the side is discharged, they would put him on a private flight.
However, Eros Mancuso is the one who played in the last practice and could be a starter. On the right, Frank Fabra is available. And it is that Battaglia tried an alternative eleven on Thursday and, although Tuesday’s headlines continued to be regenerative, the coach would preserve the majority for the match against the following Wednesday with Patronato, for the quarterfinals of the Argentine Cup, a tournament that classifies the champion for the next CONMEBOL Libertadores Cup.
In that alternative team, it also appears as a doubt if Renzo Giampaoli will remain as second center-back or if Carlos Zambrano will play, who is still differentiated by the cut on his face. Or if it will be Rodrigo Montes or Diego González. In addition, as a novelty, Edwin Cardona would start.
In this way, the initial eleven of the Xeneize would be: Agustín Rossi; Eros Mancuso or Luis Advíncula, Lisandro López, Renzo Giampaoli or Carlos Zambrano, Frank Fabra; Alan Varela, Esteban Rolón, Rodrigo Montes or Pulpo González, Edwin Cardona; Cristian Pavon and Nicolás Orsini.
Boca Juniors will visit Atlético Tucumán, on Saturday from 8:15 p.m., on the 12th.
