Boca produced a valuable victory against Defense and Justice by 2-0 to get into the semifinals of the Professional League Cup, where they will face Racing. After the game, Sebastián Battaglia highlighted the good performance of the team.
“Today we were able to maintain for a long time things that we had already been doing and that have given us results. We were protagonists, we always tried to look for the rival goal, we were able to keep our goal at zero. We are very happy with that. We are looking for the operation day by day. We seek to have options on the bench and that everyone can feel part of the group, that the one who enters can perform like the one who just left or better. That’s how great teams are formed,” he said.
Next, when asked if the game against Florencio Varela’s team was the best since he was in charge of Boca, the coach said: “It was the most complete. We suffered little, little came to us and we were focused at all times. The truth is that we are very satisfied. We are finding the idea that we have, in these last games we were able to carry it out and that leaves you calm”.
On the other hand, Battaglia pointed out that from this Wednesday he will start thinking about the match against La Academia and, beyond what the match will be, he was glad for the possibility of meeting again with two former teammates from Boca. “We are going to see each other again, it’s been a while since I’ve seen Fernando (Gago) or (Federico) Insúa, who works with him. Racing had a very good tournament, undefeated, they won their area. They found a way to play and It will be nice to see them again,” he said.
