Anticipating the Semifinals: Jorge Almirón’s Surprising Formation for Boca Juniors

A Surprise Formation for the Semifinals

As Boca Juniors prepare for their upcoming semifinal match against Palmeiras in the Copa Libertadores, soccer coach Jorge Almirón has made a surprising selection for the starting eleven. The match, scheduled for Thursday, will witness an offensive formation sans player Valentín Barco, a move that has taken many by surprise.

At a training session at the Ezeiza sports center, despite Barco’s availability, Almirón chose a 4-3-3 formation without him. The selection positions Sergio Romero as the goalkeeper, followed by a defense made up of Lucas Blondel, Nicolás Figal, Marcos Rojo, and Colombian player Frank Fabra.

The midfield will consist of Pol Fernández, Equi Fernández, and Cristian Medina, while the forward line will be held by Peruvian player Luis Advíncula, Uruguayan player Edinson Cavani, and Lucas Janson. Although this formation has been chosen for practice, it is not yet confirmed that this will be the starting eleven for Thursday’s match at La Bombonera.

Manchester City’s Interest in Valentín Barco

Meanwhile, Valentín Barco has been attracting public interest from Manchester City. However, in a conversation with ESPN, Riquelme clarified that Barco is still under contract with Boca Juniors until December 2024. He expressed his support for the player despite a minor performance slump and drew a comparison between Barco’s situation and that of Medina, who initially had some bad games but has since become a consistent and valued player.

Staying Updated with Boca Juniors

Boca Juniors fans are encouraged to stay updated on the team’s news and statistics through various platforms. These include a Facebook page, Google News, and a dedicated app available on Android & iOS. As the semifinals approach, fans will undoubtedly be eager to see how Almirón’s strategic team selection will fare against Palmeiras.
