Argentine Cup: Boca takes its last test in Mendoza against Almirante Brown |  Diego Martínez’s team plays its last game before the break

With the possible debut of the Chilean Gary Medel, who will not start as a starter, Boca will play this Wednesday against Almirante Brown for the round of 16 of the Argentine Cup, in its last test before the break. The match will be played from 9:10 p.m. at the Malvinas Argentinas Stadium in Mendoza, it will be televised by TyC Sports and the winner of this match will face Talleres de Córdoba in the round of 16.

Boca debuted in this edition with a resounding 3-0 win against Central Norte de Salta and its coach Diego Martínez will do the best he has available to overcome Almirante Brown who has been having a disappointing campaign in zone B of the Primera Nacional championship : It occupies the penultimate place with just 16 points, 22 behind the leader Colón and three from promotion.

In the first phase of the Cup, Almirante eliminated San Martín de Tucumán in a great game on penalties after having tied 3 to 3 in the ninety minutes. Daniel Bazán Vera, technical director of Isidro Casanova’s team, recognized that “the game against Boca has to be played at the rhythm of the National B” and highlighted: “We also have our weapons. The match is going to be very important for the club.”

The xeneize team will close a first semester in which it was unable to meet any of its objectives. Estudiantes eliminated him from the semifinals of the League Cup and in the Copa Sudamericana, he failed to win his zone and will have to play for continuity in mid-July in a playoff against Independiente del Valle of Ecuador, one of the third places in the qualifying phase. Copa Libertadores groups. For that reason, Boca aggressively went out to the market, it has already secured Medel, who will begin his second cycle at the club after having played between 2010 and 2011 and is close to closing the arrival of central midfielder Tomás Belmonte, from Toluca in Mexico. .

On the other hand, Edinson Cavani worried the coaching staff this week. The Uruguayan forward had trained differently after the victory against Vélez last Friday, but he will finally arrive fit and everything indicates that he will start in the last game of the semester. Those who were not part of the squad were midfielder Jabes Saralegui and defender Aaron Anselmino, who each suffered tears last week.

Cristian Medina has a slight discomfort in his ankle and will be observed until the last minute, otherwise, Vicente Taborda could start. In addition, Jorge Figal will occupy the right back, replacing the Uruguayan Marcelo Saracchi after having played against River in the LPF Cup and against Trinidense in Sudamericana in that position.

A pearl of the game is that in Almirante Brown’s squad there are six players who until last year played in Boca’s reserve. Natan Acosta, Thomas Arrieta, Santiago Gauna, Bruno Cenci and Rodrigo Pittavino were released at the beginning of the year, while Tomás Díaz, son of Daniel “Cata” Díaz, also joined Almirante but on loan. All of them will try to prove in Mendoza that Boca was wrong by letting them out.
