Boca vs Olimpo, for the Argentine Cup: minute by minute, live


In Chaco, Xeneize makes its debut in the tournament in what could be Ibarra's last game as DT. By TyC Sports.

Boca Juniors

, which is not going through a good moment in the Professional Soccer League (LPF) and that put in doubt the continuity of its DT

Hugo Ibarra

, will try to raise its level in the

Copa Argentina

, a tournament that it won four times, when it now faces to

Olimpo de Bahía Blanca

, which competes in Federal A.

The match, valid for the 32nd round of the tournament, is played at the Centenario stadium, in Chaco, is refereed by Lucas Comesaña and televised by TyC Sports.

The Xeneize


 did not have a good week after having reached three winless presentations, with a draw against Defensa y Justicia (0-0) and two straight losses against Banfield (1-0) and Instituto de Córdoba (3-2 ), results that cast

doubt on the capacity and continuity of Ibarra


The former right-back from Boca is going through the worst week of his cycle as a coach and if he does not win against Olimpo, he may be fired before the next LPF match, which will be on Saturday, April 1, against Barracas Central.

Of course, Boca's problems are not only linked to Ibarra, but are accentuated by the weak moment that several players are going through at the same time, such as

Frank Fabra, Guillermo "Pol" Fernández, Darío Benedetto and Sebastián Villa

, the latter failed with a thunderous whistle when he was replaced last Sunday night in the second half of the game against the Cordoba.

Ibarra's insistence on players who do not respond to him is one of the most questioned points and the DT must have taken note because to face Olimpo only "Pipa" Benedetto will start and the others will leave the team, as had happened before with the Peruvian Luis Advincula.

The record between Boca and Olimpo is 22 games, with 13 victories for the "Xeneizes", two for the "Aurinegros" and seven draws.

The only time they met in the Argentine Cup was in the 2012 edition that Boca won after beating Racing Club in the final (2-1).

On that occasion they played at the Bicentenario de Catamarca stadium and after drawing (1-1) Boca, led by Julio Falcioni, won 11-10 in the penalty shootout.

Meanwhile, the last time they played an official match was on August 27, 2017 for the Super League, at La Bombonera, and Boca thrashed 3-0 with two goals from Benedetto and the other from Pablo Pérez.
