With VAR again as the protagonist, because he annulled Marcelo Weigandt’s goal after a previous offside, the match ended in a 0-0 draw and was defined by penalties: 3-1 against those led by Miguel Russo and out of the competition .
Next, we review the performance 1×1 of the eleven holder Xeneize against the Brazilians …
Agustín Rossi (6): he covered a crucial heads-up at the beginning and at the end of the game. He did not suffer any problems in the rest of the process. They called him and he was.
Marcelo Weigandt (5): From the start it seemed that the match was going to get complicated because the rival – quickly – looked behind him. But no, he was firm in defense. He will have to trust the attack capacity that he showed in Gimnasia (LP) and has not yet exhibited in Boca, they need it.
Carlos Izquierdoz (8): it was a real defensive wall. He won aerial and ground duels everywhere. The Hulk didn’t even want to see it. We can’t screw him up in prison.
Atlético Mineiro’s tremendous run at home in the Copa Libertadores. He lost only two of the last 40 games.
Facing a defining duel, Miguel Ángel Russo will have the tough task of choosing the starting eleven. Next, we bring you the equipment you have in mind.

Marcos Rojo (4): the presence of Cali at his side, makes it seem that he had a similar match and it was not like that. Former Manchester United lost 4/5 defensive duels and was imprecise when he decided to play long. How much longer will it take to adapt?
Agustín Sández (5): He showed solvency in the brand and was sought in every cross ball of the defenders. As he adds minutes, he will be able to use technical resources, still hidden, that led him to the First Division. Patience.
Cristian Medina (5): he worked in the shade and annulled Ignacio Fernández. He recovered 6/9 possible balls and delivered the ball with precision. In a team that is positioned to the back, we cannot ask them to step into the area and score a goal. It fulfilled its function.
Esteban Rolón (4): cut and played when called. He showed that he is encouraged to be the first option at the start even if the rival pressures him hard. In a team that does not break in attack and defense as Boca was today, it will be able to look better. The penalty liquidates him for what is coming.
Diego González (3): Unlike the first leg, he did not enter the game at any time. It did not recover or gravitate in attack. He was a luxurious spectator.
Cristian Pavón (6): he was sought by the defenses like water in the desert and created danger in solitude. He dribbled and was accurate in the centers. He only lacked a No. 9 to look better. Last match?
Norberto Briasco (5): Far from being in his DNA to be a No. 9 bluff, he was constantly searched from the air and it cost him. Lost 9/13 disputes. He does everything they send him to play, but today he was not enough.
Sebastian Villa (2): It has ten speeds more to the common denominator of South American football and anyway it fails to stand out. The bank, despite what it has performed on previous occasions, is also an option. His nonchalance begins to tire. He missed a penalty that he executed in the middle almost without force.
