How both teams get to the Argentine superclassic

The Argentine superclassic between River and Boca takes all the spotlight on the seventh date of the 2024 League Cup of Argentine football, in a day full of the different derbies in this country.

The eternal duel between ‘xeneizes’ and ‘millionaires’ will add a new chapter when they face each other on Sunday afternoon at the Monumental stadium, in a crossroads that once again generates illusions and tensions on both sides.

After six rounds of the League Cup, River is second in Zone A, just one point below the leader Independiente, but still undefeated and with the most forceful attack of the competition with 12 goals scored, 6 of them by the Colombian Miguel Borja.

However, the presence of the coffee gunner is not confirmed, since he suffered a muscle injury ten days ago.

Borja was already a hero of the superclásico in May of last year, when he scored River’s winning goal from a penalty in injury time, in a rough and scandalous match that ended with six sent off, three per team.

On Boca’s side there is more urgency to try to start straightening the course, after an irregular start to the season, with just two wins in six matches, which has them navigating in the middle of the table in Zone B, very far from the leader Godoy Cruz, who is already 7 points ahead of him.

Those led by Diego Martínez are aware that it is almost mandatory to rescue a good result in River’s cancah to maintain the chances of qualifying for the quarterfinals of the tournament. A defeat in the superclásico can be a very difficult impact to digest.
