As happened last Saturday, against Fluminense, Boca once again hinted at more than what it specified and after the impact of the Copa Libertadores final lost at the Maracána last night, it outlined a beginning of recovery that finally ended up being “almost nothing” at the end. equal 1 to 1 in their visit to San Lorenzo, which according to the Annual Table continues to marginalize them from that competition for 2024 at the close of the 12th date of the Professional League Cup.
The blow of the lost Libertadores final was, is and will be for a long time an open wound that can only be definitively healed with the obsession transformed into the fact of reaching the seventh Cup, but to do so, obviously, you must first qualify to play it, and at the moment the “xeneize” is still far from doing so. And on top of that today the rival was San Lorenzo, who was also marching for the same objective, was local and has a favorable historical statistic in this classic between greats of Argentine football.
Now without Jorge Almirón and with Mariano Herrón as interim coach on the bench and with the losses of “Equi” Fernández (grade 1 injury to the left soleus) and the Colombian Frank Fabra, Boca won through Miguel Merentiel, after a formidable play and a fair boat qualification. In adversity, Insúa helped San Lorenzo, who besieged the visit with impetus: he tied due to a miscalculation by “Chiquito” Romero, who went out “to hunt butterflies” in a center in Nahuel Barrios and Adam Bareiro had no problem in heading to the net. At the end, a great goal came from Barrios, who had the ball knocked down by the substitute Federico Girotti offside, sanctioned by the VAR.
