Argentina: This is how the big five arrived on a stellar day


There will be a crossover in between Mouth and river, there will be a Superclásico at La Bombonera. There will be an Avellaneda derby, in Cilindro, included career and Independent facing There will be another edition of the world’s biggest neighborhood classic, with San Lorenzo accepts Pedro Bidegain Hurricane. Everything will happen next weekend at League Cup. And it will be the day of the classics, with all the rivalries that arouse the most passion within the same day and with curiosity: the five greats of Argentine football will reach this very special moment without winning.

Juan Román Riquelme, Boca’s vice president, came out on Monday to support his team and Edinson Cavani with the utmost firmness. This is not a coincidence. In the last eleven games, xeneizes managed only two. And the last, on Saturday, was a worrying 1-1 against Lanús with the Uruguayan on a poor level. The former Napoli and PSG player, among other clubs, has scored just one goal since joining the club in eight games.

If Román comes out to play on words, it’s because Boca play nine days of the year: Thursday’s Libertadores semi-final first leg with Palmeiras, Sunday’s Superclásico and next Thursday’s rematch with the Brazilians. The Cup is the obsession, but so is River. How will Boca react? How will he reach the rivalry with the millionaires: up or down emotionally, physically tired?

River also tied 1-1 with Banfield. Again, with the gray soccer fans, with Manuel Lanzini – the return of the star – without leaving. He was quickly left out of the Libertadores and the Argentine Cup. He suffered an internal crisis due to the leaks of an off-screen conversation that coach Martín Demichelis had with journalists and angered the players. And they have to go to the Bombonera knowing that they have their worst away win streak in 10 years: in that condition they have won one game in the last 14, in stark contrast to the 18 streak that they earned at home. .

Karera closed matchday 6 well this Monday. It was lost in Mendoza with Godoy Cruz until it found the tie very close at the end with a unique shot, at a corner, from Roger Martínez. He may have lost because he showed a lot of weaknesses in the back. And they could have won it in the last 15 minutes, when the Mendoza team suffered an expulsion… Today Racing will play a classic at home, in Cilindro, where they did not hesitate to complain about coach Fernando Gago with whistles. The former Real Madrid is not entering the academic skin even though his team leads Zone B with two points ahead of guard Belgrano.

First big test for Carlos Tevez

Independiente are fighting at the top in Zone A, but are also very close to relegation at the other table, fearlessly, just three points from the bottom. A dangerous double face… He will visit Racing and this will be Carlos Tevez’s first big test since he took over as Red’s coach. Apache is unbeaten in this competition, with three wins and three draws. Of course, it came from two draws, the last one tough, at home 0-0 with Instituto.

The other best of the five who didn’t win was San Lorenzo. The one who played the worst of all. The draw he caught in Victoria, against Tigre, 0-0 and supported by the great moment of his goalkeeper Augusto Batalla, turned out to be a rich reward. Rubén Insua’s team is unbeaten in these six, but in the last five they have drawn. Many winless hours accumulate. And the level of the team is falling. El Ciclón will host the Huracán in Bidegain to set up another edition of the world’s greatest neighborhood classic.
