Boca's good triumph in Tucumán against Atlético left a score book with positive marks for Sebastián Battaglia.

Because in the previous one, the move of the DT to bet on an eleven with several footballers who had no shooting seemed like a daring that put the tournament in check.

Now, with the three points in his pocket, he incorporated alternatives for the crossing with Patronato for the quarterfinals of the Argentine Cup.

The defense, with

Luis Advíncula

positioned as a starter due to Marcelo Weigandt's injury, showed a better performance for the Peruvian, who has been at the club for less than two months.

On the left,

Frank Fabra

looked better at his best: offense.

But there seems to have his place Agustín Sández, despite the fact that he comes with muscle fatigue.


Lisandro López

, with his goal and his statements, made it clear that the technical director can turn to him when the Carlos Izquierdoz-Marcos Rojo duo needs a replacement.

In the Argentine Cup, with a definition that lasts 90 minutes and that can be stretched to penalties, the determination of the starting eleven is administered in a different way. And that is why Battaglia read that in Tucumán there were yields with operating peaks that can give it results. In the beginning of the game or to twist it. Such are the cases of

Cristian Pavón


Edwin Cardona

, who had a good day against Atlético, but today are substitutes for

Norberto Briasco


Aaron Molinas


Jorman Campuzano appeared to stay with the central midfielder position.

And Juan Ramírez on the left as a fixed, the missing last name is in the right lane of the middle of the field.


Agustín Almendra


among the concentrates but does not have minutes of shooting in the last games.

With Cristian Medina and Diego


González, of different characteristics, stability has not yet been found.

All of them, with Esteban Rolón and Alan Varela behind, were also joined by Rodrigo Montes, with a goal in Tucumán.

And bet on a 4-3-3 that includes Molinas from the inside to accumulate in the attack on Pavón, Briasco and Vázquez?

It is in a draft that has not been used for now.

Nicolás Orsini's work was highly valued


Because the former Lanús, although he lacked the goal in front of Atlético Tucumán, contributed in attack movements that facilitated alleys that Boca did not find in other matches.

And Battaglia warned that "joining him with Vázquez is a possibility."

Is it enough for you to stay with a place that for now has won the 9th of the Reserve with goals?

No, but what they do perceive from Battaglia and his coaching staff is that the center for Vázquez is a temptation and resource that Boca incorporated.

But at times it became repetitive.


double nine

appears as a resource.

One more of those that the coach now has at his disposal to face a rival who complicated things for him when he debuted as a confirmed DT in the First Division.

The victory came on the hour, with a header from Vázquez.

And with 90 minutes that define a lot (one of the shortcuts for the next Copa Libertadores, for example) in Boca they believe that thinking of an eleven from memory is a mistake.

The eleven, and the bank, end up weighing the same.

"Sometimes whoever is in the bank is more important than the incumbent; if we understand that we can get good things out," was Battaglia's message after the other day's victory.

It was no accident.
