(ESPN.com) – The goals of the game played at La Bombonera were converted by Gino Perruzzi at 30 minutes into the first half and by Néstor Ortigoza, from a penalty, at 3 minutes.
Once again, like last Saturday against Banfield, Boca came out to play with the Reserve because the starters continued to be isolated after the trip to Brazil last week.
In this case, Frank Fabra and Edwin Cardona could be there, who returned from the Copa América and had not traveled to the match against Atlético Mineiro.
Xeneize asked to postpone this meeting one day to be able to count on the First Division players but the League, chaired by Marcelo Tinelli, president of San Lorenzo, refused and thus the Ribera team was forced to put the youth players back.
The boys from the Reserve, who did not have all their starters because many of them were isolated from the elders, played three games in five days like this. But they left a very good impression despite the defeat, as they did last Saturday against Banfield in the goalless draw.
It was an even match, where San Lorenzo made the experience of its players prevail and made the most of the situations it had.
The actions and the ball were divided in the first 45 minutes. Boca had the clearest with Cardona’s punch, thanks to two free throws that went close to Torrico’s goal.
Before the goal, the Cyclone was about to open the scoring with a shot from Uvita Fernández that hit the post.
At 30 minutes, a good play by Angel Romero ended in a very good cross past the far post that beat Fabra and allowed Peruzzi to enter for the initial 1-0.
With Boca looking and San Lorenzo trying to take advantage of the spaces and press the start, the first stage went.
In the complement, the game began to be defined from the outset. A hasty departure of the archerito Lastra led to a penalty against Nicolás Fernández that Ortigoza, with the usual class, transformed into 2 to 0.
Although there was a long way to go, the Xeneizes kids felt the impact. San Lorenzo took refuge well against his goal and calmly managed the rhythm of the game before the good performance of the kids, who always sought to play.
Sebastián Battaglia moved the bench and Fabra and Cardona came out, two with little rhythm of play. To highlight, we must mention the entry of the kid Barco, one of the great promises of the Inferiores, who once again showed that he is for the First.
As a conclusion to these atypical days that will remain in history, the balance beyond the result should be positive for Boca, since it is clear that it has players to reinforce the First in the best way.
Now he will have to forget the disputes of these days and concentrate on recovering the points lost in this beginning of the tournament, where he only added two points out of nine at stake.
San Lorenzo was happy with the victory, and with seven points is for the moment the only leader of the tournament.
