Immediately Vázquez almost tied, after a good run and a great pass from Almendra, but his shot in front of the goalkeeper went over the crossbar.

However, Tomba was more and Damián Pérez, from outside the area, almost scored the second goal with a great shot.

After 25 minutes, Boca improved with Almendra and Ramírez as game generators and began to tilt the court. Thus, first Pavón overflowed and almost Vázquez, and then Molinas, tied the game.
