In a match with two missed penalties, Boca Juniors equalized 0-0 against Central de Tevez at La Bombonera
* The most important actions in La Boca
Boca Juniors and Rosario Central they tied 0-0 at La Bombonera for date 14 of the Professional League tournament. On a special night, because Carlos Tevez he set foot on the club’s playing field where he became an idol for the first time after his retirement from professional activity (before the match, there was a recognition of Apache), both teams offered a lackluster show. And the archers were protagonists, since both Agustín Rossi and Gaspar Servio saved a penalty each.
The game started at full speed: Boca took the initiative, but ran into a rival who blocked Varela and put Martínez and Malcorra behind the wings, to play them long. And so it bothered Xeneize. Even He had a very clear opportunity to open the score: after Advíncula’s penalty was sanctioned at the request of the VAR, Rossi once again emerged as a figure covering Gaspar Servio’s shot. “Rossi is from Boca, from Boca he is not leaving,” the stands thundered.
The development was not modified: the tactical plan of Tevez and his coaching staff prevailed. However, little by little, the owner of the house managed to hurt. First, after a false start by Servio. Then, from the team’s best elaborate play, which Romero capped off with a shot over the crossbar.
Until Villa fought a ball from the left in stoppage time, surpassed Martínez and Cortez and, when he stepped into the area, the former Gimnasia de Mendoza collapsed him on the area line. Clear penalty, beyond the long observation in the VAR cameras. Pol Fernández executed to his right and Servio managed to deflect.

The second time became ordinary. Boca did not know how to develop the game and the Scoundrel fell into inaccuracies. Just after 18 minutes, an individual action by Villa and the subsequent shot that hit the post shook the monotony. The visit sought to oxygenate the proposal with Infantino and Marinelli. The host, with Langoni and Ramírez.
But nothing changed. Emotions only arose from inspirational saves, such as Facundo Buonanotte’s shot off Rossi or Marinelli’s deflected attempt. The Xeneize only scared with some center. After the sanction of two meetings that was imposed on Darío Benedetto and the Peruvian Carlos Zambrano Due to the fight that both carried out on the way to the locker room at halftime of the classic against Racing, Boca again lacked variants, companies. It was a constellation of proper names without content or continent.
Thus, the auriazul team navigates in the middle of the table with 20 points, nine behind the leader Atlético Tucumán and two below River Plate, its classic opponent. But the most disturbing thing for the fans, who mixed applause with some whistles or gestures of disapproval, is that he still shows no signs of identity.
Central, meanwhile, is enthusiastic about his boys and some interesting signs, such as the plan for the first half.
