Luis Advíncula’s 2023 in Boca
Advíncula’s level in Boca was one of the most outstanding of the entire squad in 2023. On the one hand, because of the position, since since Jorge Almirón surprised and put him as a winger, the Peruvian’s game grew exponentially. Then, because of his goals: he ended up being the top scorer in the Copa Libertadores with four goals and in key moments (from the decisive one against Deportivo Pereira to avoid a key defeat to the one that led to the final being extended against Fluminense).
Finally, for his dedication and attitude, being one of the driving forces of the team when a change of pace was needed, making him an undisputed starter for the XI and one of the most loved by the fans. However, while waiting for his contract to be resolved, his continuity at Xeneize remains a doubt. And given the level he showed this season, he will be one of those targeted by the big teams..
The relegation of Santos in the Brasileirao
Before starting the last date, the Brasileirao standings were looking for the fourth team to be relegated along with the already condemned América Mineiro, Coritiba and Goias. The dispute was between Bahía, Vasco da Gama and Santos. In that order – ranked from the most difficult to the least – and with the three teams at home, they had the responsibility of winning to save themselves. The only one that did not comply was the Vila Belmiro team.
Against Fortaleza, Peixe could not add three and, after the victories of Vasco (2-1 vs. Bragantino) and Bahía (4-1 vs. Atlético Mineiro), The San Pablo team condemned itself after losing 2-1.
Since its founding in 1912, it will be the first time that Alvinegro plays in the Second Division. And with it goes the history that Pelé, Neymar and many others knew how to build with three Copa Libertadores. Peixe was able to win the Brasileirao eight times (the last in 2004) and its loss will be significant in the 2024 season.
