In total, there are 10 games in which Barcelona and Boca Juniors faced each other, with five victories for Boca and four for the Catalans. Historically, these clubs have seen each other in the framework of the Joan Gamper Trophy, to which the ‘Xeneize’ has been invited on numerous occasions.
The Xeneize staff left on a flight from Buenos Aires on Monday. Sebastián Battaglia summoned for the trip the same 23 footballers who participated in the summons in the duel against Santiago, and added Norberto Briasco, Rodrigo Montes and Jorman Campuzano.
For its part, Barcelona traveled with Brazilian Dani Alves as the main novelty in the first team expedition. The full-back, who signed for Barça last November, will wear the Barça jacket again in his second stage as a first-team footballer after playing between 2008 and 2016.
For this friendly tournament, the Barça coach has summoned 28 players: Ter Stegen, Dest, Piqué, Araujo, Sergio Busquets, Riqui Puig, Dembélé, Dani Alves, Demir, Neto, Coutinho, Lenglet, L. De Jong, F. De Jong, Mingueza, Umtiti, Eric García, Iñaki Peña, Nico, Jutglà, Gavi, Balde, Akhomach, Álvaro Sanz, Comas, Mika Mármol, Matheus and Guillem Jaime.
Ez Abde, who in the last game against Osasuna (2-2) played this Sunday made his debut as a first team scorer, did not travel to Saudi Arabia due to bureaucratic problems.
Dani Alves and Xavi Hernández will appear before the media this Monday in the Maradona Cup preview.
The first confrontation between the two took place in 1928 in the old Xeneize stadium (located on the same land where La Bombonera stands today) and was a 2-1 victory for the visitor. It would be 35 years before they met again: in 1963 they played two games, one in Argentina and the other in Spain, with two wins 2-1 in favor of Boca. The following year they would play a new cross in Buenos Aires, although strikingly at River’s court, and the blue and gold team would also win, this time 3-2.
The last time both teams collided was in 2018, at the Joan Gamper. That time, the triumph was for the Catalans 3-0 with goals from Malcom, Lionel Messi and Rafinha Alcántara.
