Xeneize drew 0-0 against Newell’s and will end the date outside of the qualifying positions for the next edition of the continental competition.
Boca couldn’t break Newell’s resistance in La Bombonera and equaled 0-0 in the duel corresponding to date 23 of the Professional Football League. With this result, el Xeneize was sixth in the annual table and, for now, is outside the qualifying zone for the Copa Libertadores 2022.
Boca’s race to qualify for the Copa Libertadores 2022
Already classified for the Copa Sudamericana next year for having been the champion of the Maradona Cup, Sebastián Battaglia’s team is now looking for a pass to Libertadores 2022 (he would not play the other Cup if he succeeds) and has in the Professional League – in addition to the direct pass through the Argentine Cup – the chance to continue adding to the annual table, with the aim of getting among the top four and winning the ticket to the continental competition.
With the tie against Newell’s, Xeneize was sixth with 59 units in the annual table and, for the moment, is out of the classification positions for the next edition of the continental competition. Estudiantes, who today would be the last classified to Libertadores 2022, is fifth with 60 points. It is worth remembering that River (first with 73 points) releases its quota for having been the champion of the Professional League, like Colón (fourth with 60), who won the pass to the next Cup after winning the Professional League Cup. Vélez, which is second with 69 units in the annual table, is also already classified, so only two places remain to be defined, which for the moment would go to Talleres (third with 63 points) and Pincha.

Arsenal, Boca’s next rival
Next Saturday, from 5:00 p.m., Xeneize will face the Viaducto team in Sarandí, which is last in the Professional League with just 19 points. It is worth remembering that Arsenal comes from being thrashed 5-0 by Central Córdoba, in Santiago del Estero.
