Date 6 of the Professional League raised its curtain this Friday and its main seasoning is a duel between casts that are located at the top of the standings. In the candy box, Boca Juniors, with an alternative lineup, receives Banfield. The referee is Darío Herrera and he televises ESPN Premium.
The local opted to take possession of the ball and find spaces through the mobility of Aaron Molinas and Juan Ramírez, but it was difficult for them to find situations in the first minutes and the advancement of their lines ended up playing against them.
The fact is that Claudio Vivas’ team dedicated themselves to reducing spaces, cutting and leaving quickly, a role that they carried out perfectly. It was thus that on three occasions, one of them annulled for offside, Ramiro Enrique struck diagonally, leaving the central defenders in evidence and escaping hand in hand with Javier García. The striker could not define in one of those situations for having hooked and the other one was covered by the goalkeeper Xeneize.
But Banfield did not forgive and in a similar action, Nicolás Domingo recovered, Enrique escaped to the right and launched a perfect cross for Giuliano Galoppo to improvise a pirouette in the air and stamp the 1-0 at 21 minutes. Sebastián Battaglia’s team, despite the obvious shortcomings in the generation, the absence of pressure due to the loss and the bad setbacks, maintained the same idea and soon found themselves at a greater disadvantage on the scoreboard.

This time it was a bad start by Gastón Ávila that allowed the Drill recover the ball and, in three touches, let Agustín Urzi advance at speed to the left and launch the perfect seeker for Enrique’s fast entry. In 33 minutes, the duel was already 2-0.

The great obsession Xeneize It is the Copa Libertadores and for this reason the technical director Sebastián Battaglia once again opted for an 11 full of substitutes to protect the physical integrity of most of its stars ahead of the second leg next Tuesday for the round of 16 against Corinthians ( in Brazil they equaled 0 to 0).
After the agonizing 2-1 loss against Unión at the Alberto J. Armando, La Ribera’s men have 9 units and are four behind the leader Newell’s Old Boys (on Monday they host Patronato). The DT presented a completely different formation than the one he played last Tuesday in Brazil: only left back Agustín Sández, who acted due to Frank Fabra’s suspension, is repeated in the starting team.
The coach could not count on the suspended Carlos Izquierdoz and Carlos Zambrano, sent off against the Tatengue, and with the injured Nicolás Figal, for which he resorted to an improvised central defense. The youthful Gabriel Aranda was taken into account again (his last match was against Tigre on the last date of the League Cup) and he plays together with the “pardoned” Gastón Ávila. With Javi García in goal, the defense is completed by the full-backs Marcelo Weigandt (finally he will not go to Gimnasia de La Plata) and the aforementioned Sández.
In the middle zone, the central midfielder seemed to be the Colombian Jorman Campuzano, but the footballer would have asked Battaglia not to be part of the game because he could be transferred in the next few hours. In this way, in his place is Esteban Rolón. Next to him will be Cristian Medina and Juan Ramírez.
Ya sin Toto Salvio, who did not accept the offer to renew and will emigrate to Pumas de México, appears in the offensive with the young player Aaron Molinas and center forwards Nicolás Orsini and Luis Vázquez.
One of the curiosities is that Boca Juniors jumps onto the playing field without a sponsor, due to the fact that the contract with the Qatari airline that sponsors it has expired since it has not yet agreed on a new link with another company. In addition, the German company that wears it takes advantage of this commitment to release a new starting shirt, similar to one used in the early 90s.
The Drill, for its part, has 8 units and is in seventh place and tenth in the annual, which allows it to keep the last ticket for the next Copa Sudamericana. With respect to the 11 that comes from equaling 1 to 1 against Barracas Central in Florencio Sola, Claudio Vivas did not make adjustments to the scheme.
