Boca Juniors defeated Atlético Tucumán on Saturday 2-1 as a visitor at the José Fierro stadium, on the 12th date of the Professional Football League, in the run-up to the superclassic at the Monumental next Sunday.
Lisandro López, at 10 minutes, in a corner kick, opened the scoring for those led by Sebastián Battaglia, who largely dominated the first part of the game. The prominence of Boca was slowly reflected and thus, at 29, after a good wall between Cardona and Pavón, he took a center back in the middle of the area where the boy Rodrigo Montes entered, who defined left-handed to score his first goal in First and extend the lead.
Atlético Tucumán did not find him back in the process, not even at a disadvantage. Proof of this: in the first 45 minutes he did not kick Rossi’s goal. For this reason, DT Omar De Felippe moved the pieces and made three changes for the second half. Then Atlético began to play better, taking advantage of a certain downturn from Boca and began to play closer to Rossi’s goal. Thus, at 55, in an offensive play by the Tucumanos, Lisandro López took the ball ahead and scored the discount for the locals in his own goal.
Boca finally took the three points because, despite not having control of the game, it withstood the pressure of the Tucumans well.
