Boca Juniors, with a pale start in the 2023 Argentine leaguewill receive this Friday the old and modest Platense, in the most relevant match of the fourth date of the tournament.

The xeneizes began the domestic League with a win and a draw, but last week the 2-1 defeat against Talleres sparked strong criticism of the players and coach Hugo Ibarra, who is blamed for the lack of a consistent pattern of play.

“Everything worries me about the team, but I have to work on it during the week, day to day. There are training sessions that we do very well and sometimes you don’t see it in games, also because of the rival. I have the peace of mind that my team is going to leave, you have to be patient, ”Ibarra acknowledged.

Impatience seizes Boca, which has the Copa Libertadores as the great goal of the year and with several players questioned for their low performanceamong them the Colombian winger Sebastián Villa, expelled before Talleres.

In this context, Boca will receive Platense at La Bombonera, with 118 years of history, who returned to the first division in 2021 after 22 years and is led by Martín Palermo, one of the historical idols of the xeneizes, who began the campaign with a win and two draws.

Another promising duel of the date will be the one between Tigre and River in the north of Buenos Aires, with a Barça team that has just starred in a vibrant draw with Racing (2-2).

The millionaires lived last Sunday a party in a renovated Monumental for more than 83,000 spectators, but the brightness of the 2-1 win over Argentinos Juniors was overshadowed by several controversial rulings in favor of the local, with VAR included in the discussion.

After three days, the leader of the League is Lanús, the only one to achieve the perfect score of 9 with three victories, followed by Huracán, Rosario Central and Belgrano, all with 7 units.

The fourth date will begin on Friday night with the Gimnasia y Esgrima-Instituto matches, Huracán-Barracas Central and Arsenal-Racing, and will continue on Saturday with Lanús-Rosario Central, Tigre-River, Godoy Cruz-Estudiantes, Argentinos Juniors-Belgrano and Newell’s-Banfield.

Sunday will begin with the classic from Santa Fe, Unión-Colón, and will continue with Boca-Platense, Talleres-Central Córdoba, and Independiente-Defense and Justice, and will be completed on Monday with Sarmiento-San Lorenzo and Atlético Tucumán-Vélez.
