The scandal that Boca Juniors suffered in the Libertadores Cup continues to increase possible repercussions on South American football, because after the specific position that the Xeneize of having been deliberately harmed, its separation from Conmebol begins to gain strength.
As crazy as it may seem, the possibility that Boca will walk away from the most important club tournament in America could be a real alternative for the future; However, the issue acquired another dimension of reality when the information that Concacaf would have invited the Argentine team to participate in the next edition of the Champions League.
Beyond all the regulatory and logistical conditions that may exist, the question that fans like the most is what their hypothetical participation in the Concacaf club tournament would be like.
While from Argentina circulates the possibility of having “an end of the world between River Y Mouth“in the future, from Mexico Y United States They claim their local status and several followers question the footballing level of the blue and gold box.
Sadly for the die-hard Liga MX and MLS loyalists, top contenders to win the Concachampions tournament each year, the presence of Boca Juniors in competition it would be a real blow to the level of the area, because despite the number of stars that shine in both leagues, the hierarchy, quality and weight of the Xeneize it would rank him as one of the leading candidates for the title.
Boca Juniors Each edition would fight his presence in the final of the tournament and he would do it without any kind of difficulty in the first rounds; However, it would be very irresponsible to classify him as the top favorite above the rest, Well, if the powerful clubs in Mexico have shown something, it is that they can be on par with or above any team on the continent.
Cruz Azul, América, Monterrey and Tigres do not have a single reason to feel inferior to Boca and that should be clear. In individual capacity, experience and tactical ability, Mexican soccer has made leaps and bounds in the last 10 years and that must be aware among the South American fans.
It is not a matter of nationality or unfounded favoritism, it is mere logic and is summarized as follows: In Mexico there is money, there is no salary cap and it is possible to have payrolls with high-ranking players in all lines. Competing with quarry and old glories like Marcelo Weigandt or Marcos Rojo has a limit.
The competition would be tough and of course the name of Boca Juniors and the ‘Candy box‘It would have a specific weight that is difficult to overcome, but whoever thinks that it would arrive to win it easily is completely wrong. This is the tournament where Mexico sends its best clubs and it only takes a test on equal terms to show that the powerful Aztecs are at the level of any South American, very similar to what happened in the last Club World Cup.
