The goals of the match were scored by Agustín Almendra at 32 minutes, Luis Vázquez at 62 and Marcos Rojo, from a penalty, at 75.
Thus, Boca added three key points in the general table thinking about qualifying for the Copa Libertadores in 2022. Meanwhile, it is located in the semifinals of the Argentine Cup, where if it is champion, it will achieve the passage to the continental tournament directly.
Despite the bulky result, it was an even match, with situations in both goals and where Agustín Rossi, goalkeeper Xeneize, was key to the final score.
The first half began with a Hurricane more involved in the game. El Globo put pressure on Boca and gave him no chance to handle the ball.
In this way, and especially taking advantage of the stopped ball, the local began to generate danger and make Rossi shine. One of the clearest of the premises was a great shot by Lucas Vera, after a rejection after a corner kick, which hit the crossbar.
Boca began to recover, finding spaces for the counter. In one of the most expensive, Molinas enabled Vázquez for the forward to finish hand in hand with Marcos Díaz, in a ball very well covered by 1.
Then, once again Marcos Díaz covered the goal after a good play on the right between Weingadt and Pavón, which ended with a shot from Molinas. Once again Molinas demanded Diaz with a shot that the goalkeeper took over the crossbar.
Until at 32 minutes, Almendra, the figure of the game, took an unstoppable shot from outside the area to put the 1 to 0 partial.
He was able to get the Huracán draw at the end of the first half, but once again Rossi took the shout out of Ibáñez.
In the complement Boca defined it. First, at 17 minutes, a bad back pass to Marcos Díaz was used very well by Vázquez, who put the 2-0 at the goalkeeper’s exit.
Huracán felt the impact, left spaces and Boca took advantage of them: at 30 minutes, Marcos Rojo converted a penalty against Weingadt into a goal. The defender returned after the red against River and scored his first goal with Boca’s jacket.
The truth is that the game was very even until the visitor’s second goal, and the differences were in the areas: Boca was forceful and the Globe did not know how to take advantage of some clear chances and the weak party of the defense Xeneize.
Boca added the fourth victory of the last five presentations, while Huracán fell after three consecutive victories.
