In the previous of the Superclásico, Boca Juniors won 3-1 against Independiente at the Bombonera. On Thursday, the Xeneize will play the most important match of the year, against River. In the beginning, Boca took advantage of a goalkeeper’s mistake to break the deadlock. Diego Rodríguez slipped the ball and Jonathan Calleri scored. With the bulk of the possession, the local team had two chances to extend the lead, but the players were not accurate in the definition. Despite the fact Independiente had a poor performance, they tied the match on the 53rd minute; Matías Pisano executed an excellent long shot to beat Emanuel Trípodi. However, in the next action, Franco Bellocq was shown the second yellow card after touching the ball with his left hand.

This was the last big opportunity from the away team. On the 70th minute, Federico Carrizo made a perfect counterattack and assisted Calleri, who scored his second goal in the match. Then, once again, Carrizo executed a great centre and Gigliotti sentenced the game with a header. In this way, the “Xeneize” reaches the most awaited game of the year with a win. It will be on Thursday at 8:45 p.m. (Argentina time) at River’s stadium, for the second leg of the Copa Sudamericana semi-finals.
