How to get to Fortaleza

Leao started Serie A well, winning four points in two matches and qualifying for the semi-finals of the Nordeste Cup with a defeat. The club arrives at the match almost at full strength. Only Marinho, who is suspended, is missing midfielder Calpe, which is doubtful. Moreover, Vojvoda can give his best and maintain the level he has strengthened in the Italian League and South America.

The coach talked about the confrontation with Boca and the direct struggle for the top spot in Group Four.

“It will be a match against an opponent in the group in which Fortaleza is in first place and they are in second place. It will be important points, and that is what is at stake. In terms of the opponent, we know what Boca means in international and national competitions. “I know what this means,” he said. “The club today, they reached the important semi-finals after the loss, and they overturned the result and were able to qualify.”

How do Boca Juniors arrive?

The Argentine national team is experiencing its best moments this season. The team suffered only one defeat in its last nine matches. During this period, he achieved seven victories, one draw, and one defeat, which Estudiantes suffered 1-0, in an Argentine league match. In the last match, he achieved a major victory over his biggest rival, River Plate, 3-1, in the quarter-finals of the Argentine League Cup, and qualified for the semi-finals of the competition. Thinking about this match against Estudiantes in the semi-finals, Boca comes with a mixed team to face Leao.

Given the balance between the two lineups – the one that brings together the players most used by Boca Juniors in the 2024 season and the one that was used in the last match, against River Plate – there should only be three starters on the field: Romero, Lima. And Saralegui and Merentil.

On the other hand, three players in the possible lineup against Fortaleza are in one of two lineups: either the lineup that brings together the players most used by Boca Juniors in the 2024 season or the one used in the last match, against River Plate: Figal (most used), Medina ( most commonly used), and Equi Fernandez (opposite the river).

Possible formations


Joao Ricardo, Tinga, Preetz, Cosevich, Cardona (Tite), Pacheco; Zee Willison, Hercules, Pochettino; Machuca and Lucero. Coach: Juan Pablo Voevoda.

Boca Juniors:

Romero. Di Lollo, Lima, Figal, Sarace; Saralegui, Medina, Equi Fernandez, Fabra; Benedetto and Merenteil. Coach: Diego Martinez
