Last Sunday, Central Cordoba and Boca Juniors faced each other at Alfredo Terrera Stadium in matchday 20th in Argentine Superliga. The giants from La Bombonera imposed themselves as if they were at home and inflicted a 4-0 defeat on the Cordoba side. The Xeneizes even wasted two pens throughout the match. Carlos Tevez, twice, Eduardo Salvio, and Sebastian Villa scored the goals.

The visitors went on and scored the opener on three minutes. Following a poor backpass ball from the Cordoba defense, Tevez stole the ball and scored. 0-1 Boca.

Furthermore, Central Cordoba had some chances, but at their best moment in the match, Boca scored their second goal through Salvio from a pass from Franco Soldano.

By the end of the first half, Boca was awarded a penalty, as the referee saw handball from Cordoba’s Ismael Quilez. Just to clarify, there is no VAR in the Superliga Argentina as for now. Anyway, Tevez was the taker, but the former Man City player missed from the spot.

Coming back from the break, the visitors made it three through Tevez, on 52 mins. Salvio started it all, as he powered home in the middle and assisted Tevez, who stuck home at the right corner.

The Xeneizes wrapped it up on 59 minutes, through Villa, who was assisted by Tevez.

By the end of the match, Tevez was brought down inside the area, and the ref gave another penalty for Boca Juniors. This time, however, it was Soldano who stepped up, but as did Tevez, he also missed it from the spot.

Thanks for Boca, the missed penalties weren’t missed, as the game ended up 4-0 for the visitors.

Thus, with the rout, Boca Juniors keeps on chasing leaders, and arch-rivals, River Plate, who also won in the matchweek, and kept the distance from Boca in three points.

In the next round, Cordoba visits Union Santa Fe, on Monday as the Xeneizes welcomes Godoy Cruz, on Sunday.
