2-0: Boca gets complicated in the Libertadores

2-0: Boca gets complicated in the Libertadores

They drive the ball away from the rival goal. They don’t make a deep pass. They do not step on the opponent’s area. It happens to the midfielders of this Boca that continues without finding a convincing operation. Now he repeated that bad habit in San Pablo and suffered a tough defeat against Corinthians, for the Copa Libertadores.

A few days ago coach Sebastián Battaglia was beaten, with continuity wrapped in a huge question mark. However, the weekend a domestic victory in Santiago del Estero had oxygenated him. He had to ratify in Brazil. And he didn’t.

Corinthians hit fast, at 5 minutes, with a perfect header from Maycon, precisely the same Brazilian who scored the knockout goal ten minutes from the epilogue. All before a Boca that does not improve. Pol Fernández (as central midfielder), Cristian Medina, Oscar Romero and Juan Ramírez never accelerated. They, the midfielders, did not leave a slow and predictable rhythm. And the team felt it, so much so that there were almost no xeneizes scoring situations.

Now Boca has no margin for error. They finished last in Group E, with 3 points, the same amount shown by Deportivo Cali and Always Ready, who will face each other this Thursday. The pointer is Corinthians with 6.

It was a very varied cup day for the Argentine teams. In the Libertadores not only Boca played. So did Estudiantes, who at home beat Bragantino of Brazil 2-0 with goals from Agustín Rogel and Mauro Boselli and consolidated with 7 points as leader of a Group C that shows Vélez at the other end with only one. It is that the Liniers team fell in their field 2-1 against Nacional de Uruguay. Vélez won with a goal from Joel Soñora, but the tricolors turned it around with a brace from Emanuel Gigliotti.

In Group H, Talleres reached 6 points after beating Sporting Cristal from Peru 1-0 at the Mario Kempes stadium (goalless), with a definition by Matías Esquivel. The Cordovans caught up with the Flamengo leader (6), who this Thursday will cross paths with the Catholic University (3).

Independiente wins in the Copa Sudamericana

Meanwhile, in the South American, Independiente achieved an important victory in Venezuela, against La Guaira. They won 2-0 with a delicious free kick by Domingo Blanco and a beautiful resolution by Leandro Fernández over the goalkeeper. El Rojo has 6 points in Group G and is second, behind Ceará of Brazil (9).

In addition, for Group H, Unión de Santa Fe rescued a valuable draw against Fluminense, in Río de Janeira. There everything was in a 0-0. The Santa Fe team lead with 5 units, followed by Junior and Fluminense (they have 4), while Oriente Petrolero remains at zero. In this Cup, unlike the Libertadores, only the first of each group qualify.

Today there will be more action for the Argentine teams in the international cups. For the Libertadores, River will visit Colo Colo in Chile. For the South American, Racing will cross in Peru against Melgar and Banfield in Ecuador against Universidad Católica.
