(ESPN.com) – Boca will host Colón de Santa Fe this Sunday from 8.15pm for date 13 of the Professional Football League.
The game will be played in La Bombonera, with the refereeing by Nicolás Lamolina.
Boca has 18 points and must win so as not to lose footfall to those above, since both Talleres, the leader with 29 points, and River, second with 27, won their matches. Xeneize (18) need points thinking about qualifying for the Copa Libertadores in 2022.
But he is also betting on the Argentine Cup, where he is already in the semifinals, after defeating Patronato de Paraná on penalties on Wednesday.
In relation to this last game, coach Sebastián Battaglia would make some changes. For example, Juan Ramírez, with a knee sprain, will be outside the starting 11 and Diego González or Rodrigo Montes could enter in his place.
On the other hand, Aarón Molinas or Cristian Pavón could enter through Agustín Almendra. In the attack the doubt passes through Nicolás Orsini or Luis Vázquez, to accompany Norberto Briasco.
The defense will remain the same, with Advíncula, Izquierdoz, Rojo and Fabra. It seems that Battaglia is willing to give room to the most experienced and to leave the youth as a replacement.
On the side of Colón, the last champion of Argentine soccer, he has 19 points, one more than Boca, and although his performance fell in relation to the last tournament, he is still a careful rival.
The history indicates that 78 games were played, with 45 victories for Boca, 17 for Colón and 16 draws. El Sabalero has not won at La Bombonera for 16 years.
MOUTH: Agustín Rossi; Luis Advíncula, Carlos Izquierdoz, Marcos Rojo, Frank Fabra; Diego González or Rodrigo Montes, Jorman Campuzano, Agustín Almendra or Aaron Molinas or Cristian Pavón; Edwin Cardona; Norberto Briasco and Nicolás Orsini or Luis Vázquez.
