Key theme in Boca Juniors. While the Xeneize already he secured his ticket to the 2022 CONMEBOL Libertadores Cup, Although it remains to be defined if he will have to play the previous instance or if he will enter the group stage directly, the definition of whether or not Sebastián Battaglia will continue to lead the professional team is vital.
In the absence of a day for the end of the 2021 League Tournament, the Battaglia team reaps 60 points and its immediate pursuers in the fight for the Libertadores are Lanús (56) and Independiente (55), who can no longer reach it in the annual table and will compete in the South American CONMEBOL.
Xeneize, which to avoid the playoffs needs to win the Argentine Cup this Wednesday, against Talleres de Córdoba, or beat Estudiantes in the annual table, defines in the coming days whether Battaglia will continue to lead the professional team.
For now, Boca keeps Battaglia in charge and, despite some rumors that other coaches are sounding as an option, and the former central midfielder of the La Ribera club must resolve his future in the entity.
Battaglia will begin to define this important issue once the final of the Argentine Cup is over. There are versions of internal differences with some members of the team and it will be the DT who will make the final decision.
That seems to indicate the current situation, although variants may arise. The next days and hours will be decisive in Boca.
