Ramón Díaz has a very similar record against Boca Juniors as a coach and this clash with Libertad by CONMEBOL Liberadores will be the 20th time that he will face Xeneize.
Of the 19 clashes, the DT celebrated seven times, fell in another seven and matched the remaining five. This confrontation could incline a heads up more than even.
14 of those games were on the River bank and five on the San Lorenzo bank. He was in command of Independiente for 19 games, but did not get to meet those of La Bombonera. He was also close in 2019, when with Cerro Porteño he reached the quarterfinals of the CONMEBOL Libertadores, he was eliminated with the Millionaire, who later collided with his classic rival in the semis.
Of the seven that won, three were with those of Núñez and four with the Cyclone. The defeats are distributed more unevenly, since he fell in six Superclassics and did so only once leading the Cuervo. All ties were with River.
The last game in which Ramón faced off against Boca is the historic ‘Ramirazo’ or ‘It was not a corner’, in which the Millionaire won 2 to 1 in the Bombonera and headed for the title in 2014. That night Juan Román Riquelme, with whom he has a good relationship, scored a great goal for the local and made gestures towards the Riojan bank.
