Belgrano visits Boca for the League Cup: time, TV and formations

Belgrano will have a high-risk visit to La Bombonera this Sunday, where it will face Boca Juniors from 7:15 p.m. on matchday 8 of Zone B of the League Cup, a match that will be controlled by Nazareno Arasa, who will have Facundo Tello as VAR responsible and will be seen on the ESPN Premium signal.

El Pirata comes to this match after drawing 2-2 at Talleres in the classic and although their football present is not what was expected, having added in the last three games (they have tied with Platense 1-1, beaten Sarmiento 4-1 1 and the game with the albiazules) gives him a little respite.

It is not that “the storm” generated by a zigzagging path at the beginning of the Cup and the elimination in the Argentine Cup faded away for a handful of points, but a little fresh air has added to the points harvest of recent dates.

In terms of football, the team shows fissures, the wings are its “Achilles heel” and the crossed centers have revealed that protecting itself in defense is not its strong point, so much so that in the 8 official matches it has played this year, it has conceded goals in all of them.

But there has been an improvement in recent times. With the double five marked (Rolón-Longo) and the wingers more willing to lend a hand in the middle, his performance improved. And added to this was the fact that the Peruvian Reyna appeared to score a couple of important goals.

Juan Barinaga, suspended, will not be on the right side of the defense and his place will be for Francisco Facello, who was not taken into account in the last two calls, but returns to the event and in the starting 11.

Peruvian Bryan Reyna also did not travel, who throughout the week was trying to recover from a blow to his right leg that had taken him out of the classic at the intermission.

For its part, Boca, since the League Cup began, has barely gotten 10 points out of a total of 21 that it played. Now, they are seventh in a zone led by Godoy Cruz with 19 points and, so far, they are left out of the teams that advance to the quarterfinals.

However, Xeneize showed an improved image during their last presentation at the Monumental, as they achieved a draw as a visitor against River Plate.

“B” has not won in La Boca since 2014 and with 6 points in seven games in this tournament, they are closer to the bottom of the table than to the qualifying zone for the quarterfinals. For this reason, this Sunday’s game has a special flavor, because a good result can serve as a catapult in the search for general improvement, while a negative score can begin to weave an end to the cycle.

The Córdoban team today is 11th in the zone of 14 in the League Cup and 22nd in the annual table of the 28 teams.
