Lanús suffered his fourth consecutive loss in the tournament and complicated his chances of getting into the top four in Zone B.

In an even game, Boca once again showed defensive solidity and more effectiveness than its rival to take a new and justified victory.

The goal of “Cali” Izquierdoz, headed, after a corner kick from the admitted Cristian Pavon it was decisive to open a match in which both teams had had a chance to score.

Without shining, Russo’s team is going through its best moment of the year with five wins in a row between the League Cup and the Copa Libertadores.

After many tests, the coach found a solid central duo; a young midfield that brings brand and game; and in offense “Kichán” Pavón reappeared at an important moment of the season.

The man from Cordoba entered the second half for Obando and five minutes later he was key to Izquierdoz’s goal, with a precise execution of a corner kick from the right.

Lanús once again demonstrated his shortcomings in defending the stopped ball, as happened last date in the defeat against Vélez.

The team of Luis Zubeldia had several clear opportunities to open the scoring but after the goal it was not clear to go in search of the equalizer. In the first half José “Pepe” Sand had it with a shot that went over the top, at 20 ‘, and then Alexandro Bernabei missed it after an error by goalkeeper Agustín Rossi after a frontal free kick.

As happened in the games against Gimnasia (2-2) and Newell’s (1-0), Boca found the formula of the goal with the ball stopped and Izquierdoz’s header. The “xeneize” had had some chances with Obando and Capaldo in the first half, and with Villa and Tevez in the second half, but finally took advantage of the aerial game to win a key victory.

After the goal, Zubeldia tried to renew the attack with the return of Lautaro Acosta but with the departure of a tired Sand he also lost offensive weight to go in search of the equalizer.

With this mental impulse, Boca will travel this Sunday to Ecuador to visit Barcelona, ​​in Guayaquil, next Tuesday, for the third date of Group C of the Copa Libertadores.

Lanús will have a complicated week since on Thursday he will visit La Equidad, in Colombia, for the South American Cup, and on the last date he will receive Talleres. (Télam)
