Boca will return to practice this Wednesday, after the draw with the taste of little that he harvested against Huracán in the Bombonera. For this reason, Hugo Ibarra seeks to turn the page as soon as possible. And in that planning, DT xeneize already knows that he will lose three important players for the next two games: Luis Advíncula, Frank Fabra and Carlos Zambrano. Oh, and he still has Nicolás Figal in doubt, due to injury.
Looking ahead, on Friday at 7:00 p.m. in Mendoza against Godoy Cruz and then on Wednesday in the same province vs. Quilmes for the Argentine Cup, Mouth will have selection absentees: On the one hand, Zambrano and Advíncula, who will go with Peru in the friendly tour that will see the debut of the new coach, Juan Reynoso: they will face Mexico and El Salvador.
Fabra’s post for the elimination of Colombia. It was his last participation.
On the other hand, the third to leave is a surprise. Not because of his level, but because he is not part of the permanent staff of the Colombian team: Frank Fabra. But the winger was summoned by Néstor Lorenzo for the start of this new cycle and will be another casualty in Xeneize’s defense: he will also be in the matches against Guatemala and Tata Martino’s team.
To cover Advíncula’s loss, Ibarra has two options: one is the most natural, but the one he used the least. Which? The income of Marcelo Weigandt. The last time Chelo played was against Colón (barely 11 minutes) and to love a line of five. But in short, he has been adding very little game time in recent months. In fact, since Black took office, he has only played 56 minutes in 15 games in the cycle.
Roncaglia could continue as a starter and Figal, if he recovers, could go to the side. (Mouth Press).
The other alternative for that position is that of Nicolás Figal. In fact, he was the one who played in that position against Sabalero, since Advíncula was suspended for five yellow cards. However, the former Independiente is still in doubt due to his knee injury. Although he did not play with Huracán in order to save it for the clash against Godoy Cruz, he is not a fixture that can return on Friday. They will continue the recovery of him in these hours…
The curious case Advíncula
The Peruvian side, after the bitter pill of having missed the penalty and being eliminated in the playoffs to the World Cup in Qatar, he had given up his selection. After the deleted post at that time and the renewal of the technician, he was called again and decided to go, leaving behind that decision he had made post-elimination.
The other two substitutes
To cover Zambrano’s loss, who had been taken into account by the DT and was left out of the match against the Globe for reaching the fifth yellow, is Facundo Roncaglia, who was the starter against Hurricane and would continue to start. Though The kid Gabriel Aranda is also availablewho was not used by Ibarra throughout his cycle and this Tuesday was a starter in Reserve.
For Fabra, meanwhile, there is a fixed: Agustín Sandez, the winger who always knew how to supply him when the Colombian did not play. What is clear is that the three foreign players will miss two important matches for Xeneize, since in both tournaments they are already in a decisive stage. The League is already in the final stretch and Boca needs to deduct points. And in Copa Argentina, he will seek to get into the semifinals, where he could collide again with River.
