Boca Juniors, who suffered an unexpected setback last weekend against Central Córdoba, will receive Tigre today for the third date of the Professional League with the mission of resuming their winning pace.The match will be played from 9:30 p.m. at La Bombonera, it will be refereed by Jorge Baliño and televised by ESPN Premium.The team led by Sebastián Battaglia, the current Argentine soccer champion after his coronation in the last League Cup -precisely against Tigre-, began the new domestic tournament with a victory over Arsenal (2-1) in La Boca, and on Sunday stumbled in Santiago del Estero when they fell to Central Córdoba (1-0).Boca will try to recover with a victory in a tournament that allows some falls because it is a marathon of 27 dates, and will also seek to recover its best defensive version, which was the weak point against Central Córdoba, while in offense there will be a couple of changes that generate enthusiasm.In that sense, the Colombian Sebastián Villa will go from the start along with striker Darío "Pipa" Benedetto and the unbalanced Exequiel Zeballos from Santiago, and will be joined by the good foot of the Paraguayan Oscar Romero (he was on tour with his team) to assist the forwards and generate football together with Guillermo “Pol” Fernández.In defense Battaglia could make adjustments, linked to the wear and tear of some players like Carlos Izquierdoz or Colombian Frank Fabra, in this case due to a blow he suffered in Santiago del Estero.In front will be Tigre, a very good team that began its campaign with a win in Santa Fe over Unión (2-1) and then drew at home with Barracas Central (1-1), and which is the same team that starred in a great Cup of the League with his access to the final (after eliminating River one-on-one) and despite the fact that he was beaten precisely by Boca (3-0) in Córdoba.The "Matador" will not have one of its main defenders, since Abel Luciatti was expelled against Barracas and will leave his place to Nicolás Demartini.Meanwhile, coach Diego Martínez has a couple of doubts about the rest of the team, since Cristian Zabala and Mateo Retegui could return to the starting line-up instead of Agustín Obando and Pablo Magnín.Victoria's team will try to overwhelm Boca with the projection of their wingers Blondel and Prieto, and with the danger generated by Colidio and the scorers Magnín or Retegui.In addition, the "Matador" wants to improve the image he left in Córdoba when Boca directly swept him away in the League Cup Final and thrashed them with goals from Rojo, Fabra and Vázquez.The latest from countryThe latest in economicsThe latest in Politics© EL LIBERAL SA (see mobile version) Editorial Director: Lic.
