Suddenly in the game less thinking is when confidence is reaffirmed and a team strikes. Not even the five wins in a row had left this feeling in Boca, that of a team beyond names. Of course, conceptually, people obviously celebrated the superclásico more than the 1-0 against Godoy Cruz. But this result, which leaves him momentarily as leader, creates a higher expectation looking at the future.
The value of the win is given by three relevant points. 1) Boca knew how to stand up despite the large number of absences, without strikers like Villa-Zeballos-Benedetto, even Briasco or Orsini. 2) The way he won, with a very good PT and controlling the 90′. 3) again reached the topwith 18 points to play.
Of course, this is not a guarantee of anything, but it must be said that this victory was much more satisfying than those achieved against Defense, Colón or Lanús. Something in common of the five out of six: all by a goal difference.
Unexpected, with a patched up team it gave the feeling of a much firmer set. 110% attitude (reflected in five yellow cards), starting with full-backs Weigandt and Sandez, all playing together in a final. Aware of what had to be done at all times: attacking in the PT still in advantage and waiting for more in the second, stopping to counter and exploit spaces. Y boys character led by Negro Ibarra (Langoni, Zalazar, Vázquez, the newcomer Morales) to never let up.
Boca was the second team to beat Godoy Cruz, who fights up front, in Mendoza, that has its merits. With great collective spirit and poise, now he did get a candidate badge because it was not a carom triumph but a hard one. It will be necessary to see if this momentary tip is really the tip of a virtuous iceberg after so much stick in the wheel. This seems to be better…
