The ambition of the premises uncovered cracks in a team not so used to playing defense almost in the middle of the field. With rapid transitions, the cast of the Viaducto hit rock bottom twice: once, García screwed up the touch face to face with Andrada; in the other, Nico Giménez kicked weakly and the goalkeeper sent a corner.
However, at 15, Carlos Tevez made it 1-0 from end to end. He caused a foul near the area, a rejection after the center left the ball alive in the small area and Apache, scissor, put Boca in advantage.
Arsenal felt the blow. And the Xeneize, with the mobility of Tevez, going back to be an alternative in the assembly, some brushstrokes of Bebelo Reynoso and Villa hammering behind Torrent’s back, could expand the score, especially in a run and shot from the Colombian forward who kissed the stick left of Gagliardo.
But the visit kept the alarms going. For example, in Soraire’s head butt to the ground at 21 ′, which Andrada cleared by throwing himself to his right. Or the turn of Kaprof in the nose of Andrada that led the conquest.
At 43 ′, Ramón Ábila cleared up the doubts with an individual action that had a dose of luck. Wanchope took the ball between two men, faced the goalkeeper, who did not put up a firm resistance, and ended up taking the ball ahead to deposit it in the net.
Those led by Gustavo Alfaro chose to go back in the second half, give up spaces, and bet on speed in the counterattack. Although he continued to suffer in defense (García missed a header alone at 2 ‘of the complement) he enjoyed the power of fire. At 4, a powerful shot without an angle from Fabra declared it 3-0 and the duel was finally broken. Arsenal opted to defend hand-to-hand, Andrada blocked a cross shot from Kaprof, but every time Xeneize counterattacked en masse, there was an aroma of goal.
Thus, from Reynoso’s imbalance, there were two more goals for Boca: one from Zárate, who well defined an action similar to that which Ábila squandered in the second half, and another from Fabra, after a footfall and center behind Salvio. Álvarez Suárez’s free kick discount was anecdotal.
Sergio Rondina’s team, for its part, has been on a four-game streak without knowing victory: the last victory was against Estudiantes 3-0, on matchday 8 of the Super League.
