Excited. Almost to tears. This is how Miguel Ángel Russo showed himself, naked, after the victory of Boca Juniors in the Superclásico of the Argentine Cup, after eliminating River Plate on penalties, in La Plata. Xeneize equaled 0-0 and triumphed 4-1 in an epic definition and DT could not hide his joy at the Único de La Plata stadium.
“I dedicate this to those who doubt us. We know that we play badly, but we are at a stage where my heart vibrates and not my cell phone, and that is key. It is the difference,” said Russo after the match.
And he added: “We have to improve many things; we are arming ourselves, we come from many blows, things that we did not expect. We have a noble group. This is for the people of Boca.”
The coach remarked: “It is for the Boca fans who needed this, after some adverse results. We are recovering the forms and that is fundamental. They deserve it for all they have suffered, in the Copa Libertadores it was an injustice, and that’s how we we are recovering “.
It is the second time in a row that Xeneize has eliminated the Millionaire in a heads-up, since they had done so in the quarterfinals of the League Cup 2021, where they then fell on penalties against Racing in San Juan.
