The defender who replaced Zambrano did not hesitate to put Russo’s team among the favorites to win the Cup.
Boca could not break the zero against Freedom and he tied without goals on his return to the Bombonera, but the point was enough to buckle the classification to the second round and start thinking about what is coming. Lisandro López, who occupied a place in the defense in the absence of Zambrano, did not hesitate to put Miguel Russo’s team as one of the favorites to stay with the Copa Libertadores.
“Boca is a candidate to win the Cup. We are Boca. I trust my teammates, I know the kind of people I have on the team and the kind of players. I also know that we don’t have to relax and that we have to do our best individually and collectively. If we continue as before and add a little more, we have the possibility of being there, it depends on us, “he said. Despite.
The defender also expressed his opinion about the game against Libertad: “I see the team very well. We were the only one who tried to win, who sought the game, who created goal situations, we lacked forcefulness. We are happy with the classification, although I was unhappy with the result because I want to win. “
Regarding his personal situation, López said: “After almost eight months without playing, I felt good, I have been training well. I lack the football rhythm that I think is the most important thing for a player, I had not done much football, it was my first game. “
Finally, Lisandro referred to the atypical situation of having to play in a stadium without an audience: “It is very strange to see the Bombonera empty. When you leave the dressing room, you go through the tunnel, it is impressive. I miss hearing that. The truth is that the fans were missing but each one, from their homes, made every effort to make Boca do well. “
