Defensa y Justicia vs Boca Juniors: for recovery

The action continues in the First Division of Argentine Soccer and the surprises continue to make people talk in one of the most attractive tournaments in South America where the big teams stay away from the top and the lesser ones fight to stay with the glory. Indeed, two of the teams seeking to recover lost ground are Defensa y Justicia and Boca Juniors who will face each other next Sunday at the Norberto Tomaghello Stadium in Florencio Varela.

On the one hand, the Halcón de Varela is going through one of the worst moments since the arrival of Sebastián Becaccece at the head of the team. Accustomed to high-flying soccer and acceptable results, Defensa y Justicia became the stone in the shoe for the big Argentine soccer teams, although this season it has not been able to show its best performance.

For its part, Boca Juniors is going through an institutional crisis and does not seem to show signs of recovery after the premature elimination in Copa Libertadores against Corinthians, despite being one of the favorites of sports forecasts to fight for the title. Indeed, Sunday's duel will be a litmus test to dream of winning glory in the domestic tournament.

Last Defensa y Justicia matches

The Halcón de Varela lost soccer consistency. It is no longer that team that knew how to dominate the matches regardless of the opponent on duty. It is that the loss of hierarchical players like Walter Bou or Enzo Fernández were determining factors for Defensa y Justicia to stop being the favorite of sports predictions .

It is clear that Becaccece failed to replace the absence of these players and had to make do with a short squad full of youngsters without much experience. The result is negative, since Defensa y Justicia sinks to the bottom of the standings after accumulating just 15 points in 14 matchdays in which they won just three wins, six draws and five losses with 11 goals scored and 16 conceded.

The last Defensa y Justicia matches in the local tournament were as follows: they lost 2-0 against Sarmiento de Junín in an expected result for sports betting , they defeated Independiente and Newell's 2-1, in Rosario, they tied goalless versus Arsenal lost 1-0 to Central Córdoba in Santiago del Estero, drew goalless against Tigre and fell on the last day against Barracas Central.

Next Sunday's clash against Boca Juniors could be the starting point for Defensa y Justicia to recover lost ground and begin to increase their average for the coming seasons.

Last Boca Juniors matches

Far was the elimination of Xeneize in the Copa Libertadores de América after the fateful loss on penalties against Corinthians, in the middle of Bombonera and against all the sports bets that gave it as a favorite after a goalless draw in Brazil.

However, the collateral damage of football disappointment remains latent and Boca Juniors is immersed in an institutional and football crisis that does not seem to have an end. Battaglia's departure at the head of the team was as painful as it was necessary, although the arrival of the interim trident made up of Ibarra, Gracian and Pompei offers no solutions in sight.

Boca Juniors roams the playing field with a soccer level far below its potential and negative results that accumulate. So far, Xeneize remains in the middle of the table of positions as a result of 20 points in 14 games at stake with six wins, two draws and six losses where they scored 18 goals in favor and received twenty, being one of the most tournament goals.

Boca Juniors' last matches in the Argentine tournament were as follows: they beat Talleres de Córdoba 1-0, lost 2-0 against Argentinos Juniors, defeated Estudiantes La Plata 3-1, were thrashed against Patronato 3-0, defeated 2-1 to Platense as a local, tied goalless against Racing and against Rosario Central, on the last day.
