Argentine football began and there was a great curiosity that had not been seen since the Tournament Opening 1993: none of the big five managed to debut with a win and left a poor image.
One aspect to highlight is that many bet on alternative teams, since in the week they will play Copa Libertadores / Sudamericana matches. The truth is none managed to win and it happened again on a first date after 28 years.
Boca drew 1-1 with Unión, Racing 0-0 with Vélez, San Lorenzo 1-1 with Arsenal and Independiente 0-0 with Argentinos Juniors. The only one who lost was River, who fell 2-1 against Colón at the Monumental.
The last antecedent without victories of the big five was in the Maradona Maradona Cup 2020. On that occasion, Racing lost 2-1 with Vélez, Independiente 3-2 with Huracán and San Lorenzo 2-0 with Talleres. River drew 1-1 with Argentinos Juniors and Boca 1-1 against Arsenal.
The championship is just beginning and there will surely be time for the giants to improve their game and achieve good results. They are always candidates to keep the title, but the first image they left was really poor. Will there be a surprise for the champion this season?
