The ‘Xeneize’ is obliged to win in the resumption of the remaining 81 minutes of the duel suspended due to incidents and the death of Lolo Regueiro. From 15:00, televises TNT Sports.
Boca Juniorsforced to win to overtake Racing and recover the top of the Professional League before the last date, visits Gimnasia y Esgrima this Thursday in La Plata, in the resumption of the unfinished 81 minutes of last October 6, when incidents between the Buenos Aires Police and the ‘Lobo’ fans caused the suspension and the tragedy with the death of ‘Lolo’ Regueiro.
The meeting, valid for the 23rd, will resume at 3:00 p.m. with two times of 40 and 41 minutes, respectively, will be refereed by Hernán Mastrángelo and televised by TNT Sports.
Racing was the leader with 50 points after beating Lanús (1-0) on Tuesday night, while Boca follows it with 48 points and the possibility of surpassing it if it wins in La Plata.
The scenario is not the same as two weeks ago, when Gymnastics (41) arrived with chances of fighting for the title, since in the following three games the “Wolf” added just four units and was left out of the discussion.
It is true that the ‘Wolf’ still has a more than important objective: a victory would leave him at the gates of qualifying for the Copa Libertadores 2023.
In the case of Boca, to become champion for the second time this year after winning the League Cup in May, led by Sebastian Battagliadepends on their own results to take a new Olympic lap.
Those now led by Hugo Ibarra need two victories (in La Plata and on Sunday against Independiente) to deactivate any attempt by the ‘Academia’ and Hurricane, the third in discord beyond what seems like a utopia.
If Boca does not win in La Plata, its fate will depend on the result of Racing on Sunday in Avellaneda in the classic against River, which is outside the discussion for the title.
