For the Copa Libertadores’ Group H, the Venezuelan side Caracas hosted Boca Juniors at the Olimpico de la UCV stadium. Boca Juniors’ manager, Miguel Angel Russo lined up the team with only three starters, due to the last matchday in the Argentine League this weekend. It would be a shame to debut in the continental competition with a mixed-up team, but given Boca can lift the Argentine championship, it’s acceptable.

Even so, Boca should have done better against Caracas. The game ended up in a 1-1 draw.

The hosts attempted to get the lead early in the game and almost did so as Anor’s finish was well-saved by Boca’s keeper, Andrada. Boca raised their tempo, and opened the scoring themselves on 23 minutes, as Villa assisted Ramon Abila, as the center-forward scored with his left foot. 0-1 Boca Juniors.

After the break, the Venezuelans came back as the brightest side, and the equalizer didn’t seem far away. In the minute 53rd, Hernandez got the ball at the edge of the area and gave it a try from distance. He ended up striking a powerful shot right at the top corner from the Argentine keeper, who could do nothing to save it. 1-1.

Following Caraca’s equalizer, the two sides sought the winning goal, and they even created some chances for it, as both keepers pulled off some good saves. However, the match game was faded to end in a 1-1 draw.

With the draw, Boca and Caracas shared the points in Group H. For the 2nd game of the Copa Libertadores Group Stages, Boca Juniors will play in front of their fans, against the Colombian side Independiente Medellin at La Bombonera.

The team from Venezuela, on the other hand, travels to Paraguay, where they will face the group’s leader, Libertad, at Defensores del Chaco.
