At the end of the night, when all the contacts had already been touched, Jorge Amor Ameal understood that it was

no longer worthwhile to continue insisting with the most drastic position

: not to present the team to play against Banfield. "This is all against Boca," roared the president. He soon contacted Juan Román Riquelme to start taking action on the matter. And almost at dawn, while the League issued a statement in which it rejected the postponement request again, the idol vice president and Miguel Angel Russo were already thinking about how to prepare the game together with Sebastián Battaglia, the Reserve coach.

Of course,

behind the comings and goings, they were injured. And Boca's relationship with the League is broken

. Beyond the presence of Roberto Digón, vice third who attends the meetings in Puerto Madero, there is no return.

Ameal feels that everyone conspired against his club

. There is some victimization, of course.

If it had not been for the Spartans' struggle led by Raúl Cascini - increasingly questioned internally - in the bowels of Mineirao, the


could have had their headlines.

The presence of the Police in that sector was taken as a leak to the bubble, beyond the letters from Conmebol and the Argentine Embassy in Brazil to the contrary.

But there is also a contradiction and that question is asked in Brandsen 805: what is the difference between leaving the Intercontinental hotel to Casa Amarilla to train and playing an official match?

The incidents that the Boca delegation carried out in Mineirao ended in a broken bubble that led to having to use the kids against Banfield.

One could quickly answer that Banfield players are at risk

. The statistics do not provide conclusions on infections within the field of play. Boca, just in case, made his own report through an official statement that presented the convulsed night on Friday. In a score, he assured that his campus has 65% of its members vaccinated; 83% recovered from Covid-19; 77% immunized with antibodies and a null percentage of intracompetence infection. In addition, he reported that he had 4 swabs in the last 7 days.

Nothing was enough to twist the arm of the leaders of the League

, who handled themselves in accordance with current Regulations, regardless of the fact that they communicated with all managers. Sarmiento, Defensa y Justicia, Gimnasia, Lanús, River, Independiente and Banfield himself, to name a few cases, had to play their Professional League Cup matches with heavy absences due to massive outbreaks.

"Boca is not going to take us ahead," they

say in the League.

Hence, the figure made by its president and who feeds a kind of blue and gold protectionism, that

"all against Boca



Faced with Conmebol for the arbitration decisions that left the team out of the Copa Libertadores and with the League for not "showing solidarity" with their health problems, they

were on the verge of breaking relations and releasing the team

They understood that the remedy was worse than the disease.

Even though River has not been scored points for not attending the match with Atlético Tucumán in the extinct Super League Cup, the polls that were among the fans in different media and networks were overwhelming:

the majority asked to play with the youth


"They are spent, but it is what it is," they

admitted in Boca, who sent them to the field on Friday to put pressure.

They trusted in the telephone promise they had received from Marcelo Tinelli and from the highest levels of government.

The president of the League denied that he had taken an oath before Ameal.

Someone lies, it is clear.

"They turned around," they

protest at the Bombonera.

Public opinion had been blunt.

There are Argentines stranded abroad who cannot return or have to quarantine when they step on Ezeiza and it would have been another controversial decision to allow Boca to play with its starters after the scandal in Belo Horizonte.

What's coming

Tinelli and Tapia, the strong men of Argentine soccer and a zigzagging relationship.

The Boca-Liga war will have new chapters ahead





support Claudio Tapia, who is in the sights of the Government, although the letter of the General Inspection of Justice (IGJ) has not yet been played, which could reject last year's Assembly in which he was re-elected president of the AFA .

And call elections again.

The endorsement of Pablo Toviggino confirms the concept.

"What an opportunity did Argentine Soccer pass with its Professional League. Right moment, to show solidarity and united. But No! They chose the path of confrontation and discord. We have to take care of the Clubs, hug each other and walk together. My solidarity with Boca Juniors ", stated the executive secretary of the Presidency of the AFA on his

Twitter account

. And he added: "I am sure that from the Argentine Football Association we would have proceeded differently. All the responsibility to the leaders who today lead the Professional League, the lack of management and the confrontation, are their permanent qualities. It is time to unite Football Argentinian".

Tinelli has aspirations to the Viamonte armchair.

A month ago he had a meeting with Pablo Moyano - fought with


, his former brother-in-law - about which there was much talk.

For the AFA, they are the enemies and Toviggino's tweet makes it clear.

Ultimately, everything is thread and what matters the least, oddly enough, is the ball.
