Professional League: Boca clings to statistics to dream of a victory

The negative streak of Boca, which has been nine games without knowing the victory, will collide this Sunday with a positive statistic, when it faces Estudiantes de la Plata and get to know Uno’s new stadium, where prior to the remodeling it accumulated eight games without losing. The meeting of those led by Miguel Ángel Russo will be one of the games that will animate the sixth date of the tournament of the Professional Soccer League this Sunday, which will share the soccer billboard with Racing-Newell’s, Patronato-Central Córdoba (Santiago del Estero) and Platense-Arsenal.

Boca and a visit with an advantage

Boca has just four points in the contest and all its units were products of draws, a poor harvest whose last sum he conquered last week against Argentinos Juniors (1-1). Between the last League Cup, the current local tournament and the Copa Libertadores in which it was controversially eliminated in the round of 16 by Atlético Mineiro, Russo’s team accumulates too much time without winning, although the statistic was not in the eye of the storm because it eliminated River from the Argentine Cup, in definition by penalties and after having tied zero to zero.

In that context, Russo will retake the line of three defenders that he used in the Superclásico of the Argentine Cup, with Carlos Zambrano, Carlos Izquierdoz and Marcos Rojo plus two full-backs with an offensive vocation, Luis Advíncula and Frank Fabra, and Esteban Rolón as five “stoppers”.

The team from La Plata, meanwhile, arrives expectantly and with nine points to the duel that will be played from 6 pm and will broadcast TNT Sports. “This kind of game always gives you a message to know where you stand. I do not give importance to Boca’s streak, it is always a competitive team whoever plays, with a good squad and a great coaching staff. I always like to face the big teams, “said Ricardo Zielinski, in his first crossing as DT of Estudiantes against the Xeneizes, the last of the so-called greats to visit the new home of La Plata.

The last time Boca played in 1 and 57 was on May 29, 2005 in an even game without opening the scoring. In this positive series there are three wins for the Ribera team and five draws. The positive streak xeneize in the old “Jorge Luis Hirschi” registers a 0-0 draw in the 2004 Clausura, a 2-0 victory in the 2003 Clausura, a 1-0 victory in the 2002 Clausura, 1 to 1 in the 2001 Clausura, 2 to 2 Apertura 1999, 1 to 1 Clausura 1999 and visiting victory by 2 to 1 in the Clausura 1994. The last victory of Estudiantes in their old home was for the 1993 Super Cup, when they won 2-0 with goals from Paraguayan Gabriel González and José Luis Calderón and for the local tournament in the Apertura 1991, 1 to 0, goal by Roberto Trotta.

Racing opens Ubeda

Racing is another of those who arrives urged by a victory to his presentation before Newell’s this Sunday at 8.15 pm -which will be televised by Fox Sports-, still with the pain of the classic lost to Independiente, already without Juan Antonio Pizzi as DT and with Claudio Ubeda in his place on an interim basis.

After Pizzi reaped 52 percent of the points, lost the finals to River (Super Cup) and Colón (League Cup) and was eliminated from the Libertadores by São Paulo of Brazil at home, Ubeda wears the academic diver as an interim technician until December next to take the reins of the team that accumulates eight points and is close to the top, although it must deal with the injury to Lisandro López, who tore his left soleus.

In the opposite sidewalk will be Central Córdoba, which had an irregular start, for which it adds five points, and advances supported by the good results of the last tournament, which place it outside the lower positions of the averages, facing the decline in 2022.

Platense, host in full bloom

Sunday’s day is completed with the match that will begin at 3:45 p.m. (with transmission from TNT Sports) and will face Platense, who lived a week moved by the eight confirmed cases of coronavirus, against Arsenal, in Vicente López, by the sixth date.

The Squid has a tough challenge: traced a bad start – last gear, with 2 points – in the middle of an outbreak that took away Facundo Curuchet, Matías Tissera, Horacio Tijanovich, Luciano Recalde and Julián Marcioni, all infected with coronavirus. They are also joined by midfielder Roberto Bochi and central defender Stéfano Callegari, due to “close contact”, while midfielder Iván Gómez will be left out due to a muscle injury. Nor will he be able to have Leonardo Madelón, another of the isolated, in the bank, and it will be Claudio Spontón, normally in charge of the Reserve, who will lead the strings of the brown team.

The panorama was calmer in Arsenal -that only adds three more units-, although Alejandro Medina will not be in the arch also for having been infected with coronavirus and will be replaced by Daniel Sappa. Coach Sergio Rondina, in this way, evaluates the probable returns of midfielder Nicolás Castro and forward Nicolás Mazzola, recovered from their respective injuries, who would enter for Alejo Antilef and Alan Ruíz, respectively.
