Boca Juniorsto walk wobbly in the Professional Soccer League (LPF), receives Platense in a match valid for date 12 in which he will try to recover his best version, the one he showed during the first semester when he was champion of the domestic tournament.
The match will be played from 9:00 p.m. in the Bombonera, it will be refereed by Yael Falcón Pérez, with Jorge Baliño in charge of the VAR, and televised by the ESPN signal.
Xeneize has 15 points after having won five games and lost six, the last one with a rout included in Paraná against Patronato (3-0), which deepened a negative series that began with the elimination of the Copa Libertadores at the hands of Corinthians, then followed the dismissal of DT Sebastián Battaglia and later the traumatic departure of captain Carlos Izquierdoz.
Opposite will be Platense, who has 18 points (seven less than the leader Atlético Tucumán) and barely lost a game, the classic with Tigre (3-0), although he tied too much, six times, the last one on the last date without goals in Vicente Lopez with Central Barracks.
The record between the two is 123 games and widely favors the Xeneizes, who won 54 times against the Calamares 27, while drawing 42 times.
The last time Boca and Platense met at La Bombonera was almost 24 years ago, on October 4, 1998, with Boca winning 3-0 with goals scored by José Pepe Basualdo, Juan Román Riquelme and Walter Samuel.
That team led by Carlos Bianchi was crowned undefeated champion of that Apertura tournament and had Riquelme, current vice president of the club, as one of its figures, and Jorge Bermúdez, one of the members of the Football Council, also played that match.
