Boca Juniors suffered the first blow after losing the final of the Copa Libertadores 2-1 against Fluminense at the Maracaná stadium: coach Jorge Almirón resigned from his position minutes after he arrived in Argentina with the delegation. The former Lanús, Elche and San Lorenzo communicated his decision to Juan Román Riquelme, vice president of the institution. Thus, on Wednesday, the day in which Xeneize will have to face the classic against San Lorenzo for the League Cup, everything indicates that Mariano Herrón, coach of the Reserve, will be leading the group.
