Boca and San Lorenzo define the International Summer Tournament in La Plata

In Stadium One, in La Plata, Boca and San Lorenzo define the International Summer Tournament. With an audience of both biases, the classic is played, with Facundo Tello as referee, from 9:15 p.m., with transmission by Fox Sports Premium and Star +.

The match began with good dynamics, with a San Lorenzo that tried to press well up, at Boca’s exit, but Boca responded soon with a deflected header from Vázquez, within the first few minutes in which there were also many frictions and a couple of rough crosses.

The game began to wind down after the first ten minutes, as the two teams entered a more charged development, with more offenses forcing Tello to draw a couple of yellow cards. Boca insinuated a domain that was not very productive, since they had more ball, but could not go deeper.

Darío Benedetto, Boca’s new addition for this season, will not be on the bench and his place will be taken by the youthful Valentín Barco. The striker, presented last Friday and beginning his second cycle at the club, carried out activation exercises this morning at Casa Amarilla. Then, the coaching staff headed by Sebastián Battaglia arranged for him to remain focused and accompany the squad, but he is not on the bench against San Lorenzo and the youthful Valentín Barco will replace him. who was summoned today at noon.

The absence of Benedetto would have two reasons: the first, is to take care of him physically, since he came from his time in Elche with a problem in the adductor and has only had three training sessions with his new teammates; the other is that the idea of ​​the leadership would be for him to debut at the Bombonera on the first date of the League Cup against Colón, on February 13 next.

The entry of the young marker Barco, great promise of the inferiors, is due to the fact that the other forwards, Cristian Pavón, Ramón Ábila and Mateo Retegui are not taken into account by the coach. Pavón, whose card expires next June 30 and if he does not renew, he would keep the pass in his possession, an attempt is made to negotiate it abroad, while Ábila and Retegui are on the list of expendable players and have offers from several local soccer clubs.

The other striker is Norberto Briasco, who has a muscle injury and could start practicing next week with the rest of the squad.
