Boca receive San Lorenzo in one of Argentina's biggest derbies. Last time they met, at San Lorenzo for the Apertura '06, Boca humillated San Lorenzo 7-1. Today, coach Russo is giving rest to Ibarra, Morel and Neri Cardozo ... Palacio is injured with a broken toe and Banega is suspended.
San Lorenzo is in 2nd place, tied with Boca, on 7 points. Their coach, Ramon Diaz, is a River glory ... both as a player and as a coach. Diaz has lost every game he has coached at La Bombonera, except for his last visit in '02, when River beat Boca 3-0. San Lorenzo is the only team of the group of "big clubs" in Argentina that is ahead of Boca in head to head results, something that is the pride of their fans.
