Argentine Cup: Boca faces Agropecuario in Salta

Boca Juniors, the current champion of the Argentine Cup, will face Agropecuario tomorrow with several changes, from the First National, with the mission of achieving a victory that will allow them to settle in the quarterfinals of the federal contest. The match valid for the round of 16 will be played starting at 9:10 p.m. at the Padre Ernesto Martearena stadium, in Salta, with arbitration by Ariel Penel and televised by the TyC Sports cable signal.

The team led by Hugo Ibarra will go with 6 changes compared to the eleven that beat Platense 2-1 last Saturday at the Bombonera, for the Professional Football League.

The winner of the tie between “Xeneizes” and “Sojero” will play in the quarterfinals against Quilmes or Deportivo Madryn, both from the First National.

Boca settled in the round of 16 of the Argentine Cup after having left Central Córdoba de Rosario and Ferro Carril Oeste on the way, which, like their rival this Wednesday, are promotion teams, the “Charrúas” of the First C and those of Caballito of the First National.

Agropecuario, for its part, first eliminated a team in the same category as Almirante Brown and then gave a “bump” when it left Racing Club out of the tournament.

Boca, who became champion during the first half of the League Cup and that title also allowed him to qualify for the 2023 Copa Libertadores, is aware that the Argentine Cup is one of the goals within his reach for the rest of the year . Especially, because in the domestic tournament they have too many teams at the top, despite the fact that they are only seven points behind the leader Atlético Tucumán.

For that reason, coach Hugo Ibarra will put the best available in Salta and despite the fact that on Sunday in Avellaneda he will play a classic against Racing that will surely affect his future.

While captain Marcos Rojo is recovering from a tear and still has 15 days to recover, Boca will show several changes, such as goalkeeper Javier García for Agustín Rossi and the return to ownership of Colombian Frank Fabra. Martín Payero will go from the start as a midfielder on the left instead of Juan Ramírez; and the offensive duo will be that of “Changuito” Exequiel Zeballos and Nicolás Orsini, while Darío Benedetto will surely have a few minutes on the field, with the possibility of starting on Sunday against Racing. In defense, the Boca coach will bet on the duo made up of Nicolás Figal and Facundo Roncaglia, to rest Peruvian Carlos Zambrano, who had a weak performance in the defeat against Patronato (3-0) in Paraná and a good job in the win against Platense.

The “Sojero” has five games without a victory (two losses and three draws) and 484 minutes without scoring a goal, and its main figures are the defensive midfielder Matías Fritzler (former Lanús), Néstor Moiraghi (former Olimpo de Bahía Blanca) , goalkeeper Williams Barlasina and forwards Emanuel Dening and Alan Balbi.

Boca’s presentation generated, as every time it plays in the interior of the country, a huge expectation. That is why the people of Salta sold out the available tickets and are preparing a great reception for the team.
