Lucas Viatri Ruled Out Of Boca Juniors Team

The striker is suffering from a muscle strain and could be missing for the next two fixtures...
Boca Juniors striker Lucas Viatri will not play in the Xeneixe's clash against All Boys this Sunday, after he was ruled out with a muscle strain.

Ole reports that Viatri, who has scored both of Boca's goals so far in the Apertura, had been carrying the injury since the season opener against Godoy Cruz, and it forced coach Claudio Borghi to take him off in Saturday's loss to Racing Club. As well as being discounted for Sunday's must-win game, Viatri is also a doubt for the following fixture against Velez Sarsfield.

With the striker's injury, Pablo Mouche is set to get the chance to make his first start of the season against All Boys. Borghi is also set to make some unforced changes; Marcelo Canete will enter for Damian Escudero and Matias Gimenez for Jesus Mendez as Boca try to forget the disappointment of the last two matches.
