Boca wins by the minimum in front of Talleres in its debut

For the minimum and without lucidity, Boca Juniors debuted with victory in the Argentine Superliga to win on Sunday 1-0 Workshops in La Bombonera. The only goal of the bicampeones was scored by the international Cristian Pavón in the 8 minutes. Boca missed the second at 51, when goalkeeper Guido Herrera cut a penalty to Carlos Tevez. The xeneizes found the goal in the first attack. Pavón finished with a low right and, after a rebound, the ball touched the net. The locals had the ball in the first half, but without depth. Only at 32, Tevez had another manifest occasion. The former Juventus finished in the middle against the closing of Herrera and the goalkeeper managed to divert.
   In the second half, defender Leonardo Godoy committed a penalty to Emmanuel Mas. Tevez took charge and shot to the right, but Herrera managed to deflect the shot. "I'm happy to play again," said Tevez, who had been a substitute for the Copa Argentina. "The people from Boca always support me, that makes me happy, I'm going sad because of the penalty, but the important thing is that Boca won." Boca maintained control of the game without stepping on the opponent's area, but without suffering any upsets in their own. The most obvious occasion of the visitors was Juan Ramírez at 71, when his shot hit Pablo Pérez and goalkeeper Esteban Andrada cleared. The reigning Argentine champion will play next Wednesday the Joan Gamper trophy against Barcelona. "We are going to enjoy the moment and try to win," said Pavón.
