In a duel with more friction than football, Boca Juniors, after 0-0 in regular time, won 4-1 on penalties against River Plate and reached the 4th Final of the Argentine Cup, where they will face Patronato de Paraná.
Next, we analyze unoxuno the performance of the eleven holders of the Xeneize …
Agustín Rossi (5): In the course of the match, he was not vehemently demanded and he was not complicated by weak shots. The hero on penalties.
Luis Advincula (4): the start of the Peruvian with interesting projections excited everyone. But, as the minutes passed, his performance declined. Defensively, he showed a worrying version -1/8 duels won. It came out at 62 minutes.
Carlos Zambrano (6): It complicated the existence of the River footballers who decided to attack. He won 8/10 defensive duels that he played. Great match for the Peruvian who came to the Superclásico without rhythm.
Carlos Izquierdoz (7): fundamental piece to hold the arc at zero. He won from air and land -4 / 5-, intercepted -2- and cleared -4- absolutely everything. He left life as always.
Red Mark (7): Should he have been expelled? Yes. Did you understand how the Superclásico is played? Too. The former Argentina team did not guarantee a clear pass from the bottom, but it was the worst stumbling block for River’s attackers. 3 innings, 5 interceptions and 5/8 defensive duels won. A wall.
Agustín Sández (4): He beat Barco for the left lane of the defense and delivered. He stopped Montiel, who ended up replaced, and was encouraged to project himself sporadically.
Diego González (6): he pushed the team in the first minutes of the PT to pressure and delivered the ball with precision. Individually, they did not help contain the Boca defense -1/6 duels won-. He came out exhausted at 80 minutes.
Esteban Rolón (3): He is still not the team’s puppeteer. The ball passes little by him and, far from guaranteeing a mark – which is why he beat Varela’s pulse -, he does not recover. 1/6 defensive duels won. You have to bank it, right?
Juan Ramírez (6): He was the Boca footballer who recovered the most balls -12/17 duels won- and received the most fouls -5-. He was replaced at 88 minutes without a tooth. The Blue and Gold did not weigh him down at all.
Cristian Pavón (5): He ran from side to side on the court seeking to recover and offer himself as an option. He did not stand out in either of the two facets. Guilt of the technician, yes.
Norberto Briasco (4): He was a lion to put pressure on possible River receivers in the first minutes of the game, but in offense he is still not in danger. He constantly receives aerial balls and suffers it, because it is not the subject in which he performs best. Boca urgently needs a center forward so that he can show off.
