New signing Leandro Rodriguez has been called up to the squad as the Belgian winger's replacement for the cup match, manager Roberto Martinez has said.

Mirallas was shown a straight red for a tackle on Modou Barrow two minutes after coming on as a substitute during the 0-0 draw at the Liberty Stadium & Martinez said he was disappointed by the referee's decision.

Oviedo, however, is more of a doubt after he pulled out of Costa Rica's recent friendly against Uruguay with a knee injury.

Buenos Aires (AFP) – Four Boca Juniors fans suspected of spraying toxic gas at River Plate players during the Copa Libertadores were formally charged Tuesday with aggravated assault, a judicial source said.
