Boca got its pass to the final last night thanks to a tie at 2 with Palmeiras, a match that more than a game of football seemed The Ultimate Fighter with 17 fouls per team, is rare to end with 11 players the game.
The team led by Guillermo Barros Schelotto arrived with the tranquility of the 2-0 victory they won at the “Bombonera” and opened the game at Sao Paolo with a goal from Ramón “Wanchope” Ábila who overtook at the 17th minute in a concentration error of the defense of Palmeiras. The classification seemed assured, but the Brazilians woke up in the second half and came back in less than ten minutes. Boca would felt the cold fright but Benedetto came from the bench to bury the dream of the “paulistas” with a goal from outside the area and put the final 2-2 that gives the pass to Boca and gives us an Argentine Superclassic in the final of the Libertadores Cup.
The last Superclassic matches have had only one owner and it is River, winning the 2 games of the league and the final of the cup with 5 goals in favor and without Boca being able to do even one.
The final has not yet date because the G20 summit is crossed with the matches on the date they had established and Argentina does not have enough police bodies to cover both events, security first and foremost knowing the background of these teams. It will be the last final of the Copa Libertadores that will be played back and forth, then it will be a single match in the neutral field.
Like the date, River Plate is also in doubt. The Disciplinary Unit will attend the claim of Gremio and the Conmebol will tell us if there is a superclassic or not next Saturday.
