2-0: Boca gets complicated with the Libertadores


They pushed the ball away from the opposing goal. They don’t make deep passes. They do not step on the opponent’s area. It happens to these Boca midfielders who go on without finding a convincing operation. Now he repeated the bad habit at St. Paul and suffered a severe defeat against the Corinthians, for the Copa Libertadores.

A few days ago coach Sebastián Battaglia was beaten, with a continuation wrapped in a big question mark. However, over the weekend a domestic victory in Santiago del Estero gave him oxygen. It had to be ratified in Brazil. And not done.

Corinthians hit quickly, in 5 minutes, with a perfect header from Maycon, the Brazilian himself who scored a 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 speeded up. They, the midfielders, did not leave a slow and predictable rhythm. And the team felt it, so almost no scoring situations xeneizes.

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

It was a very different cup day for the Argentine teams. In the Libertadores it wasn’t just Boca who played. So did Estudiantes, who at home beat Bragantino of Brazil 2-0 on goals from Agustín Rogel and Mauro Boselli and combined with 7 points as the leader of a Group C showing Vélez on the other end with one only. It was 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 reversed it with a brace from Emanuel Gigliotti.

In Group H, Talleres scored 6 points after beating Sporting Cristal from Peru 1-0 at the Mario Kempes stadium (no goal), with the definition of Matías Esquivel. The Cordovans overtook the leader of Flamengo (6), who this Thursday will cross paths at Catholic University (3).

Independiente won the Copa Sudamericana

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

In addition, for Group H, Unión de Santa Fe saved an important draw against Fluminense, in Río de Janeira. It was all there at a 0-0. The Santa Fe team leads with 5 units, followed by Junior and Fluminense (they have 4), while Oriente Petrolero remains zero. In this Cup, unlike the Libertadores, only the first in each group qualifies.

Now there will be more action for Argentine teams in international cups. For Libertadores, the 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.
