BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- Despite Boca Juniors being among the favorites to win the Argentine league title and Copa Libertadores, the club's fans are not completely satisfied.

The second half of the split Argentine league season opens Friday with Boca having won the first, but the team was criticized for its defensive, counterattacking style under coach Julio Cesar Falcioni.

Winning the double, however, would surely sway most of the doubters.
