"It was two difficult months, they told me that I was going to come back next year, but I tried to speed up my recovery, I thought it would cost me a little more for inaction, but I felt very good." The words of gratitude belong to Esteban Andrade, the goalkeeper of Boca, who returned to become a starter in the arc, with a good return to the Patronato and he formed from the start in a rematch of the Libertadores Cup final against Rivera next week.
After 57 days exarquero Lanús was shown quick reflexes and good interventions in a tight 1 to 0 victory on the “Template”, which was the most outstanding, which occurred at the end of the game, when he flew to reject Mathias Garrido's shot, which would mean a draw in “La Bombonera.”
The goalkeeper was at the height of his side, and now Guillermo Barros Shechotto must decide whether Agustin Rossi will continue his outstanding work in the final one-way traffic with the river, or if he trusts the former “grenade”.
After the game, “Meliso” said at a press conference that “the sensations were good” in terms of Andrada’s speech, stressing that “he went to the balls, separated without fear.” He added: "I saw him well, he will have seven more days of work, and on Saturday we will decide about him and the rest of the team."

Pavon, almost discarded
Guillermo Barros Shekhotto said that Boca's fans did not want to hear before the rematch of the Copa Libertadores Super Final. With some resignation, the coach acknowledged that “it is very difficult that (Christian) Pavlen arrived“ in a match against the river, because of a tear in the left popliteal joint, which he suffered in the first match.
He was also sincere and He stressed that this is a meeting where he needs all the players in full.“In court, we need eleven players who run forever, if Pavon cannot do this, it’s difficult for him to play,” he explained.
On the other hand, the Boca technician thought that “there are no favorites,” and that everything is “very even” between the two teams. In this regard, he said that the first final was “smooth” and that the differences were marked by the “good players” that both teams have.
In addition, Barros Schelotto mentioned the situation with Carlos Tevez, who played well in front of the team of Paraná: “You have to prepare him for the best, either from the beginning or during the game,” he told Apache.
