Final line before the game. Boca will do the last two training before facing River for the rematch of the Superfinal de la Libertadores and is about to set the starting eleven. The injury of Cristian Pavón probably messed up his plans to think about this appointment, although it is true that he has replacement material as a substitute. And one of them is none other than Carlos Tevez, included in the list of concentrates.
O Apache entered the complement in the first match and comes with football minutes for starting last Saturday against the Patronage for the Super League. In the offensive, the twin has as fixed piece Wanchope Abila and the question will be who will accompany you. In between Carlitos and Darío Benedetto may leave the name, but we should not rule out a cover and even a schematic change.
The concrete is that the surname Tevez has its own weight per trajectory, scrolls, titles and history against the rival of all the life. Only Barros Schelotto is convinced.
1 · STRENGTH AND LEADERSHIP IN THE GROUP
This last stage in Boca grabbed Tevez at 34, being the most experienced on campus. He was always prominently nourished and chased the property as a team played. By level of football, he had to adapt to the place he played on the team. He tolerated substitution, scored in some games (he scored the agonizing draw in the group stage against Palmeiras in Brazil) and his support in silence was recognized by most of his team mates, who believe he is vital in the locker room. The insult directed at Izquierdoz after the 2-2 with River on the way to the Bombonera exposed him as the singer at a climactic moment of the season. The fact of having hosted a dinner at his house last Tuesday, another example of how relevant it is to the staff.
2 · GOOD NEWS
He did not have regularity in the appointments throughout the season, but participated in the last three of Boca. He doubled to a 4-1 victory over Tigre and was the 1-0 figure against the Patronato last Saturday (both at Bombonera for the Superleague). And no doubt the good image he left during the 18 minutes in the Superclassic for the first round of the Libertadores final opened a door to enter the starting lineup of the match at Monumental. Tevez entered, hired and even had a direct impact on the scoreboard: first with an attempt at the door of the great area and then with a magnificent personal maneuver in which he left face to face with Armani Benedetto when the game died. With Pablo Perez on one leg, he finished as a midfielder.
3 · YOUR AFFINITY WITH VIRUS
Known is the personal relationship of Apache and Wanchope. In fact, Carlitos was one of those responsible for sponsoring the arrival of the old hurricane to the xeneize institution. The chance of starting from the zero minute in Monumental would put to test the pair of fans of Mona Jiménez and Ulises Bueno. Crafty, could generate a wear in the last line of the River, as it happened several times during the match disputed in Bombonera. In addition, this would allow Darío Benedetto – he has not started for Libertadores since the first round against Cruzeiro – enter the complement (or increase) and can be decisive in the final minutes of Superfinal.
4 · HISTORY AGAINST THE NO MONUMENTAL RIVER
Carlitos made his debut in Núñez for Apertura 2002, the day that Boca of Washington Washington Tabárez won 2-1 with the double of Chelo Delgado. After this joy, he played a match that will be remembered forever and that left him with a bitter taste: a 2-1 defeat in the 2004 Libertadores semifinals, the day of his "hen." Tevez scored the partial equality that deposited Carlos Bianchi's squad in the World Cup final, but his vibration in the celebration was noticed by referee Hector Baldassi and earned him the expulsion. Finally, Xeneize won the penalty shootout. He recorded another 2-0 loss to Apertura 2004, a win (1-0, Nicolás Lodeiro) for the 2015 Championship, a draw (0-0) for the 2016 Championship and a resounding victory in his last visit to Monumental: It was the great figure – with double included – in the 4-2 that also counted on the goals of Walter Bou and Ricardo Centurión.
5 · MOTIVATION TO PLACE A GOLDEN BROOCH TO YOUR CAREER
"The obsession with winning the Cup is something that makes me very hungry, being able to win and retiring in a big way is something I want, what I dream and what I want, I win and I think I'm retiring, I have nothing left to fight, it's what I want and what makes me sleepy. " This statement from Tevez was made in March this year, shortly after returning to the club. His record registered five local titles and three international titles with the Boca shirt. On Saturday you will have a great chance to win ninth place in the club and prove the possibility of playing the Club World Cup in the United Arab Emirates. In his head round the idea of hanging his boots at the end of the year and the result of his professional career may be that every footballer dreams. There is no other player who has more desire to succeed than he.
