A very conservative Boca lost to Estudiantes and could not seal the classification

And Boca Juniors very conservative fell this Friday in La Plata 1-0 with Estudiantes in the continuation of the meeting on date No. 11 of the League Cup, who had been suspended after 27 minutes of play due to the fainting of Javier Altamirano, and could not seal qualification for the play off phase, although he continues to depend on himself.

Xeneize prioritized order throughout the game and that’s why he had no reaction when An error by their goalkeeper, Sergio ‘Chiquito’ Romero, ended in Javier Correa’s header after a corner.

In the first half, both teams prioritized order over any other issue and the development was the logical consequence of that: it had no emotions or great performances.

The difference that justifies their victory is that Pincha knew how to change in time. Eduardo Domínguez gave oxygen to his team in the complement with the modifications and, thus, the place began to generate danger.

Diego Martínez’s team did not know how to adapt, they continued playing the same and did not even have dangerous chances.

In this way, the dead ball action arrived at 67 minutes, when Correa anticipated everyone in the corner and headed alone, well directed although without great power. That’s where Romero’s mistake appeared, as he didn’t look for the ball well and it escaped. The ball rolled slowly into the goal and the UNO stadium exploded in celebration.

It was a very even match and even, at times, boring. No one would have been surprised if it ended 0-0 but if one of the teams deserved to win, it was Estudiantes.
