Edwin Cardona reappeared after a month and Boca Juniors showed a football improvementHowever, he ran out of air to face the second half when Union took the lead in Santa Fe.
The two-time Argentine champion claimed his different player. Coach Miguel Ángel Russo included him as a starter to visit Unión and the Colombian played 53 minutes from more to less.
Boca continues with his idea of football recast. He had control of the game from Cardona, who gave him a little more depth on the left but the attack faded and Sebastián Villa returned to his times of weak definition.
Edwin tried to be influential with the ball from that side. He gave 43 passes, 32 with success, in an offensive zone that offered little option of discharge. Half of those deliveries he had to give to branded midfielders, shy to break their line.
He disturbed with his free kick punch. The local goalkeeper took a corner kick from a mid-height free kick at 23 ‘. At 53 ‘and after the Union goal, he left the court for Mauro Zárate.
He was exhausted after five games of absence. A week after the start of Conmebol Libertadores, Boca already has one of the footballers with whom it can make a difference, just when the numbers tighten: it won two of the last six games.
