mouth vs. Corinthians today: what time do they play, TV, online and formations | Second leg of the Copa Libertadores round of 16

Boca will play before Corinthians from Brazil much more than a simple revenge for the quarterfinals of the Libertadores Cup. The game this Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. in the Bombonera (transmits Fox Sports) will put into dispute a soccer, economic and institutional project that bets on reconquering the maximum continental tournament at club level after 15 years of drought and frustration.

If Boca were to qualify after ninety minutes of play or on penalties, Xeneizes’ spirits will cool down while waiting for the quarterfinal matchup with the winner of the key between Flamengo and Deportes Tolima from Colombia. He doesn’t need that much to achieve it: it will be enough for him to win by any difference after the goalless draw recorded last week in San Pablo, which, if repeated with any format, will force him to define from the penalty spot.

Formation of Mouth vs Corinthians

Boca: Agustin Rossi; Luis Advíncula, Carlos Izquierdoz, Marcos Rojo, Frank Fabra; Pol Fernandez, Alan Varela, Oscar Romero; Exequiel Zeballos, Sebastián Villa and Darío Benedetto. DT: Sebastian Battaglia.

Formation of Corinthians vs Mouth

Corinthians: Cassius; Fágner, John Victor, Raul Gustavo, Fabius Santos; Giuliano, Victor Cantillo, Du Queiroz; Roger Guedes, Gustavo Mantuan and Willian. DT: Victor Pereira.

But if in regular time or from eleven meters, Boca were to be left out, a political and sports convulsion will shake the old Ribera stadium to its foundations. It is not so far from it either: the Brazilians will also go through with a 1-0 in their favor. Juan Román Riquelme as vice president and head of the football decisions of the institution and of course the coach Sebastián Battaglia and the players will be targeted out of frustration. The old critics of the old critics will reappear and, if the night ends in defeat, the air will immediately become unbreathable inside the so-called “Mundo Boca”.

Referee for Boca – Corinthians

The Uruguayan referee’s handling of the game will be key Andres Matonte. In San Pablo, the Chilean Roberto Tobar with authority endured the protests and complaints of the players of the two teams and was able to put on track a procedure that any other, more inexperienced judge could have gotten out of hand. Matonte, designated to direct the next World Cup in Qatar, will have to control the game firmly from the beginning and prevent it from becoming distorted. Both Boca and Corinthians are two gigantic clubs that not only aim to get through the round: they want to win the Cup and they will spare no resources to achieve it, whether they are good or the others. Matonte must stop there to set a limit.

His compatriots Nicolas Taran and Martín Soppi will be the first and second assistants, José Burgos the fourth, Leodan Gonzáles will be in the VAR,

Boca will make only one change with respect to the team that drew the tie in Brazil: Frank Fabra will reappear as left back in place of the youthful Matías Sandez. And he has already left behind the terrible performance of his alternative formation that on Friday lost 3 to 0 against Banfield. Instead, Corinthians is a riddle: the squad has been feeling the hustle and bustle of so many matches between the Cup and the Brasileirao and has ten injured. Willian, the former Chelsea midfielder, dislocated his right shoulder a week ago and has since been ruled out. On Sunday, Fluminense thrashed him 4-0 at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro, a more than clear indication that “Timao” will not arrive at the Bombonera in the best way. But still, he will not give up the feat.

Boca and Corinthians in the group stage

If the match were to be decided by kicks from the penalty spot, all eyes would be on the two great figures from last week: goalkeepers Rossi and Cassio. Rossi saved a penalty from Paulo Guedes and spread security. Cassio took out several goal balls. We will have to see when it is their turn, if it is their turn, to become heroes in a game that will spread tension on and off the field.
