Scout report: Boca Juniors midfielder Cristian Medina

An underwhelming first half of 2021 for Boca Juniors saw the Xeneize fall at the semi-final hurdle in Argentina’s Copa De La Liga and progress somewhat unconvincingly behind Barcelona from their Copa Libertadores group. The overdue need for reinforcements in the market is clear and yet there were reasons for optimism for manager Miguel Ángel Russo provided most notably from Boca’s academy products. 

None more so than 19-year-old Cristian Medina, who at a time when Boca’s midfield was looking sluggish and devoid of energy, provided a much-needed shot in the arm.

The Argentina under-17 and Boca youth team star had long been talked about as a player of enormous potential but had to wait until February of this year for his senior debut in the blue and gold.
