Xeneize played one of the worst matches of the year, was never able to gain a foothold in Sarandí and missed out on a huge opportunity to grow further.
The positive streak Boca had achieved after the Superclásico defeat had created a small illusion among the fans, who, besides seeing themselves far removed from the title challenge, imagined an epic comeback to reach the final stretch with minimal chance. reach. However, all seems to be buried in the Viaduct, on one of the worst nights of 2023.
And just as Jorge Almirón had captained that lift with three straight wins in the local league, he is being marked as the person responsible for the setback against Arsenal due to the inexplicable decision to bet on a double ‘9’ it was never understood and without Equi Fernández, who had formed a trident that looked oiled with Medina and Varela.
It all comes down to the fact that Ars goalkeeper Alejandro Medina had practically no significant interventions, except for a shot from Merendiel at the end of the first half. And Federico Vilar’s team, with all its limitations and urgency for an average that has almost doomed it, played the game it had to: wait, come out against it and, when given the chance, did not miss the set piece. Thus, Pombo almost placed his cue in the small area, tricked Romero and made it 1-0.
To make things even more uphill, Rey Hilfer dismissed Weigandt with an iron and with Advíncula further behind him he had no freshness to attack. The changes logically came too late, although Fermández was the only one who tried something different. Only a couple of very high free-kicks from Villa upset Viaducto, who celebrated again as they did a few months ago against River, holding on to the illusion that they will try to hold on for as long as possible.
Well yes, all Boca’s guns will be aimed at the Copa Libertadores, securing first place in the group and returning to the sources to recover that lost identity in Sarandí.
