Ibarra’s strong bet against El Bicho

“Here the last word is mine.” The phrase of Hugo Ibarra to the campus in his first practice after being ratified until December as the coach of Mouth rumbled loudly at the Ezeiza Training Center. On the one hand because It served the DT to dispel any type of rumor that may have remained after Agustín Almendra’s words to the fired Sebastián Battaglia (“You are not the coach, they manage you. You won everything, but as a DT you are a disaster”), and then to mark the entrance court, to show that He is a man of strong decisions.

This is how the brand-new 48-year-old coach began to make it clear, in his third game in charge of the team he kicked the board, took out important names from 11rearranged with others looking for a place and not only that, but also has already shown that not tied to a tactical system -despite his words- and modified it. In summary Boca de Ibarra will present four changes this Tuesday in the Paternal against the Argentinian pointerIt will sport a new design and, in principle, a very offensive posture, with four forwards.

The changes of Ibarra, who had already cleaned none other than the captain Carlos Izquierdoz in their second practice, they are very strong: out Darío Benedetto, who suffered a kick in the ankle against Talleres and that also comes from being a starter in the last three games; Alan Varela, the 5 -for now- favorite who also drags a nuisance in the same area as Pipa; Oscar Romerothat it does not come from a good match against the Cordovans; Y Juan Ramirezthe midfielder who had quickly gotten into number 11 with Battaglia and the one who for Juan Román Riquelme “he always plays well”.

Roncaglia has already practiced with Boca: what do the fans think?

Ibarra’s decisions have their reasons, of course. In the first two cases it has to do with neither Pipa nor the youth are in physical condition to play, beyond the fact that both are on the coach’s concentrate list; while the last two, in addition to a noticeable drop in the yields of the Paraguayan and the former San Lorenzo y Talleres, Possibly they are due to the (short) dimensions of the Bicho field.

And there, in the size of the Diego Armando Maradona stadium, there may also be the justification for the DT to put the names he puts, to go from his standard 4-3-1-2 that he announced at the presentation conference (“I always liked playing with a loose one”) to 4-4-2, to play it with forward four! to get close to the peloton at the top of the table and to make the decision to bet on double 5 and double 9.

Reserve: Boca beat Argentinos de... Riquelme!

Yes, because Ibarra goes with everything to the Paternal, with a very offensive proposal: in addition to the entry of Jorman Campuzanowho went from asking to go on loan to being the permanent substitute for Varela and now the starter, the other three who join the team are: Exequiel Zeballos, Luis Vázquez and Nicolás Orsini.

But the important thing in the case is not so much the names that enter, but rather what they are going to play or where they are going to stand. Because while Vázquez and Orsini, who will be facing an important chance to recover lost ground, They will be the two spotlights (despite the fact that the former Lanús often played outside and accompanied Pepe Sand), the Changuito and Villa will be the two missiles that the team has on the wingstaking advantage of the dimensions of the field.

Curiously, a proposal similar to the unemployed of 11 that Boca de Miguel Ángel Russo had in 2020, with Eduardo Salvio and Sebastián Villa on the wings, and with Pol Fernández and Campuzano in motor mode of that team that ended up crowned champion.

And the proof, above, It will be against one of the leaders of the Professional League and as a visitor in a stadium that usually costs Boca a lot, although the last time he lost there was in March 2018. Since then and until now he has played only three times in the DAM: 1-0 in September 2018 (with Guillermo Barros Schelotto of DT), 0-0 in May of 2019 (with Gustavo Alfaro) and 2-2 in January 2021 (with Russo), although that result helped him to qualify for the phase in the 2020 Maradona Cup that he would later win.

Now it will be Ibarra’s turn, a man of strong decisions. Double or nothing.
