Boca, toned after beating Arsenal, will face a tough pitfall in his fight for the Super League title tonight when he visits Velez, in a match corresponding to the thirteenth date of the contest and that will have the condiment of Mauro Zarate's return to Liniers . The match will be held from 8 pm at the Jose Amalfitani stadium, with the arbitration of Patricio Loustau and the television of TNT Sports Premium.
The cast of the riverside, which arrived beaten after falling with Lanus and losing the tip, showed signs of recovery on the last day, when he defeated Arsenal in the Bombonera 5 to 1.
That result allowed the team to reach 24 points, as did River, and now both are escorts of the Argentine and Lanus leaders.
The bad news was that Carlos Tevez, author of a goal against the Viaduct team, suffered a tear in the left adductor that will marginalize him from the next meetings and even put shadows on his future with the blue and gold shirt.
The lowering of the Apache again opened the doors to Mauro Zarate, who in this way will play again in the Amalfitani, where he will surely be harassed by the fans due to his traumatic departure from Velez and some statements that increased the controversy.
Meanwhile, Emanuel Reynoso, one of the highest points in the past date, suffered a blow in the left twin, so it will not be of the game and his place will be for Alexis Mac Allister.
As for the defense, Carlos Izquierdoz met a suspension date and will return to the title in place of Paraguayan Junior Alonso.
The set of Liniers accumulates four games without defeats and without receiving goals, comes from drawing as a visitor to Central Cordoba of Santiago del Estero (0-0) and with 21 points is also involved in the fight for the title.
Facing the clash with Boca, coach Gabriel Heinze did not confirm the team and maintains some doubts, especially in the arc and in the attack.
On the fence, Lucas Hoyos left behind an injury and is ready to return, but Alexander Dominguez played a good game in Santiago del Estero, so the question remains about who will play.
Meanwhile, in the offensive Maximiliano Romero and Leandro Fernandez fight hand in hand for a place.
