Miguel Angel Russo has two doubts in the Boca team that will face Estudiantes de La Plata, next Sunday for the sixth date of the Professional League, while the reserve goalkeeper Agustín Lastra tested positive for Covid, and there is alarm because last weekend he concentrated with the First.
Beyond the fact that in soccer practice, at the Ezeiza campus, he mixed, as he does on a regular basis, possible starters with substitutes, the coach has only two doubts to play at the Uno de la Plata stadium this weekend.
The doubts are whether Agustín Sández returns as a starter, as he has done since the beginning of this semester, or if the Colombian Frank Fabra, owner of the position last semester, will again be part of the game. The other question is who will occupy the position of extreme midfielder, if the youth will continue Aaron Molinas or Agustín Obando enters instead.
The possible team would be with Agustín Rossi; Advíncula, Izquierdoz, Red, Sández or Fabra; Diego González, Rolón, Ramírez; Molinas or Obando; Briasco, Pavón. This way you would go back to the line four defenders, since in the last game in which Russo used the starters, the victory against River on penalties (4-2) after drawing without goals, he had a line of three backs.
Boca will have six variants to face Estudiantes with respect to the last date: in the defensive part Advíncula by Marcelo Weingandt and Rojo for Lisandro López, in the middle of the field Rolón for Jorman Campuzzano, González by Cristian Medina and Ramírez by Edwin Cardona, suspended for his expulsion in the tie against Argentinos, and in Briasco attack by the youthful Luis Vázquez, one of the two 9 that the squad has along with the injured Nicolas Orsini.
The idea of the coach is to have a base in the next games to improve a team that barely achieved a victory in the last 15 games, and he only scored two goals in the eight official matches who played this semester.
The reserve team did the swabs prior to tomorrow’s confrontation from 10 o’clock against Estudiantes, the goalkeeper tested positive Agustin Lastra and because of having close contact the defenders were also isolated Renzo Giampaoli and Valentín Barco.
