In an even game, Boca showed its effectiveness and was left with a 2-0 victory against Huracán. Xeneize hit on the two clearest chances they had and took three fundamental points to pave their way to qualification for the quarterfinals of the Super League Cup. The match, valid for the 11th date of the contest, was played at the Tomás A. Ducó stadium in Parque Patricios.

The first part had a cut development and without too much shine. The duel was even and Boca only marked differences when he managed to move quickly half of the field to bet on the runs of Sebastián Villa or Frank Fabra. However, those attempts never ended in clear scoring options.

On the Globe side, Norberto Briasco was the only one who showed some rebellion to try to break the solid Xeneize fund. That was how the minutes passed without anyone being able to unbalance and expectations were deposited in the second half.

The bookmark was opened as soon as the plugin started. Sebastián Villa tried medium distance. In the stretch, goalkeeper Sebastián Meza managed to brush the ball and it hit the post. In the rebound, Franco Soldano appeared, who beat the Globo centrals in the run, and pushed the ball to goal.

A few seconds after gaining the advantage, Nicolás Capaldo had a chance that he could not define precisely and that prevented Xeneize from getting an even greater distance on the scoreboard. From that moment on, the Globe took possession of the ball, but never found the ways to disturb the goal defended by Agustín Rossi. Boca took care of the advantage and did not suffer too many shocks. Miguel Ángel Russo had time to move the bank and even ordered the entry of Cristian Pavón, who had not worn the club’s jersey for 19 months (he returned after a loan to the Los Angeles Galaxy of the MLS). At the last gasp, and with Huracán in search of an agonizing draw, Boca found spaces and Gonzalo Maroni made the final 2-0.

The whole of the riverbank did not have too much left over, but he was neat and cautious once he was up on the scoreboard and took a very important victory that gives him peace of mind for the future. Xeneize has 19 points and is located three below Vélez, which is the leader of Zone 2. Further back are Independiente, Talleres de Córdoba and Lanús, all with 16.

The Globe, for its part, practically missed its last chance. With 12 units, he appears temporarily four points from the quarter-final classification zone, when there are two dates remaining for this stage of the contest.
