In the resumption of the Copa Libertadores, after the stop by Copa América, Boca Juniors received Atlético Mineiro in the Candy box for the Eighth Finals. Far from feeling the changes in the workforce (low and high), the Xeneize had a good performance but did not break the parity: 0-0 in the Ida.
Then, We analyze the performance of the starting eleven that DT Miguel Ángel Russo ordered:
Agustin Rossi (5): made a stop within the area, and not much else. There is an archer.
Marcelo weigandt (4): returned from the improved LP Gymnastics loan. The “Chelo” showed solvency in the right lane of the defense without complicating. You must add your contribution to the attack.

Carlos Izquierdoz (5): he was not afraid of the presence of the Hulk in the rival front and he even dared to be an attack weapon, with conductions, in the complement.
Marcos Rojo (4): his function was to mark the Hulk and he fulfilled it. He hit him and always beat him from the air. He must avoid absurd reprimands, he is the man of hierarchy.

Agustin Sández (4): He avoided rival attacks on the wing and played simple with the ball at his feet. It’s Russo’s bet on the left lane.
Cristian Medina (4): went unnoticed on the playing field and the team felt it. In the second half, he was replaced.
Esteban Rolón (6): he took charge of the medium and detected spaces in the first half that reveal his reading of the game. If Boca wants to play well, the ball must go through him.
Diego Gonzalez (7): he stepped on the area constantly and scored the goal that was later disallowed. The Octopus showed that he is ready to play.

Cristian Pavon (7.5): the best in Boca. On the left side he gravitated facing, while on the right he did so overflowing. It is optimal from the physical point of view.
Norberto Briasco (7): in the first half, he bounced good balls for the players who came from the front. He showed mischief and the fan likes that. It is at the height.

Sebastian Villa (3): a Tevez was missing inside the field to challenge him. He made, on several occasions, touches of more sinning of selfishness. Weigandt got mad at him in the end.
