What will Boca's formation be this Saturday against Banfield?

After the traumatic elimination of the Copa Libertadores against Atlético Mineiro in Belo Horizonte, with the VAR scandal, the incidents in the dressing room after the penalties and the night in a police station near Mineirao, the delegation led by Miguel Angel Russo was isolated in the Intercontinental Hotel.

There are 24 footballers who will not be able to play for Florencio Sola for the second round of the Professional League.

And after the tug-of-war with Marcelo Tinelli-president of the LPF- and with the Ministry of Health - it did not approve the "sanitary corridor" - Boca will finally have to play with youth footballers and with Sebastián Battaglia, the Reserve coach, at the helm of the team.

Many of the players who could debut tonight in the First Division already played the Reserve game against the Drill on Friday, which ended with a 3-1 victory.

The only ones who already have minutes in the first team are

Valentín Barco

, who made his presentation in the tie against Unión, last weekend, and

Equi Fernández


And Edwin Cardona?

After playing the Copa América with Colombia and taking his vacation - he lost the key against Atlético Mineiro - the Colombian midfielder ended his isolation after returning to the country and could be an option.

But since he did not have a complete soccer practice (neither with Russo, nor with Battaglia) he would not be there to play. 


#Boca won!

On the 2nd date of the tournament, @ sebabattaglia5's team defeated Banfield 3-1 with goals from Taborda (x2) and Escalante.

One by one of the kids of the Reserve

Agustín Lastra:

A great goalkeeper who comes from standing for a long time.

They relieved him from the Libertadores list due to a health problem (blow to the spleen).

He went to the Reserve bank in the last game and was a starter in the Fourth on Saturday against Gimnasia, with a 2-1 victory.

He's very tall, stringy, salty, good punch.

But it came without rhythm.


Eros Mancuso: He

has the conditions to be number four.

He was a right-hand drive, then they threw him back and he learned a lot in the brand.

In Reserve he plays with ease, he is past category.

When he attacks, he does not attack to attack: he arrives, overflows, hooks inside, if he can, the play ends.

Goes decisively and resolved.

They offered it to Gimnasia and Sarmiento.


Balthazar Bernardi: He

was a winger, now he is a central defender.

Good height.

He has a physique similar to that of Giampaoli, a central physicist.

It is more technical than aggressive.


From Infantiles in the club.

No professional contract.

Lisandro Mercuri:

A kid who came from Leandro N. Alem in Infantiles.

Unlike Bernardi, he is more aggressive than technical.

He is a right central and sometimes played four.

No professional contract.

Valentín Barco: He

is a crack.

He already debuted in First.

They brought him as a coupling, then he was extreme, then left lane ... Everyone knows the secrets of the band, and he has a great punch.

Rodrigo Montes:

They made him the first contract.

He played in Atalaya de Córdoba.

It took a long time to demonstrate its conditions.

You can act five.

He has dynamics, a metedor, passes the ball well.

Good physique.

Renderer, recuperator.


Equi Fernández: He

is a southpaw with a very good game, without a profile problem, something that is more common in rights but not in lefties, who are generally more closed.

Deploy, play well, good technique.

The brand defends itself, it is not its strong suit.

He has already debuted and is professional.

Gabriel Vega: He

is straight, he has a very good short and long pass.

It started from the internal steering wheel, but they were moving positions.

He always shows up for the five to give him the ball.

He passes it and hits him well from medium distance.

Good head.

Great future.

He never hid.


Ezequiel Almirón:

He's from the area, left-handed.

He is not tall, but he is well armed.

He scores goals, but he's not a scorer, a scorer.

From Infantile.

He has not yet signed a contract.

🔛 From 10 o'clock, the @ SebaBattaglia5 team visits Banfield for the second #ReservaLPF date.

📋 1-Ballast;

4-Mancuso, 2-Bernardi, 6-Aranda, 3-Barco;

8-Montes 5-Duarte, 10-Vega;

11-Escalante, 9-Almirón and 7-Taborda.

Vicente Taborda:

He played hook, then it was nine and finally they turned him into a winger.

He has been in Boca since he was 11 years old.

Israel Escalante: He

goes on the outside, very fast, quite skillful, and very professional.

He returned from a loan in Independiente Medellín.

Quick, he has skill, he makes a noise for any of the bands.
