Riquelme: Fast Start Essential for Boca Juniors

Boca Juniors midfield ace Juan Roman Riquelme says it is imperative that the team fly out of the gate if they hope to reclaim the league crown this season.

After two games, the Bombonera gang stand fourth on four points, and the play maker has warned his teammates about the bullseye they carry every match.

“It will be very difficult for us, all the teams want to beat us and we want to beat all of them,” Riquelme told the club website.

“Each game will be very difficult, every team we face will make life hard for us and we have to accumulate as many points as possible in the first few rounds.”
