Vázquez had the clearest with a great header after a corner kick that the 1st pure reflex took to the corner kick. Before, on the line, Fratta had rejected after a shot from Pavón with a goal goal.

At 25 from the end, Lobo was left with 10 for a double yellow to Brahian Aleman, but not even so Boca could take advantage and find the spaces to achieve at least equality.
