The only 2 teams left from Argentina in this year's Libertadores were destined to face each other, by chance, this early on in the competition. They know each other very well. They swapped coaches this past January, in not such a friendly manner. They faced each other last April 9th ... Boca winning convincingly 3-1 that nite at Velez.
Boca field the same team that played this past weekend against Racing for the local tournie, except for one ... Neri Cardozo returns from suspension.
Velez gave rest to the entire squad this past weekend ... they have lost all chances in the local tournament and concentrate solely in this tournie.
