Boca did not achieve the advantage over Arsenal that tied the match thanks to a goal of Facundo Pons leaving the result 1 to 1 just above the end of the match played in the framework of the Diego Maradona Cup.The match, valid for the Champion Phase of Group A, left a sinsabor to the team of Miguel Angel Russo who despite having presented advantage for much of the match, Arsenal tied him on closing and the game in the Bombonera finished 1-1.During the first half Boca, who played with a majority of substitutes for the closeness of the Copa Libertadores quarter-final duel against Racing, he scored his lead in the 29th minute thanks to the goal of Diego Pulpo González who executed the goal thanks to a free kick from the agustín Obando steering wheel.
Boca’s striker broke down in tears after the goal was made as it was his first conquest after a cruciate ligament rupture injury he suffered while playing in Racing, in September 2019.Just after this advantage Arsenal began to improve his chances and performances. So much so that before the close of the first stage, Jhonatan Candia and Alejo Antilef took advantage of some maneuvers although without being able to tie the match. Already averaging the second half, Russo decided to send to the court several of his figures who were in the bank: Eduardo Salvio and Carlos Tévez to successfully regain the reins of the match although it lasted little. Arsenal showed off over the end of the contest in the 44th minute when Facundo Pons scored the draw that would already be final. Now, Boca must focus on the big goal of the Copa Libertadores, a tournament that will face him next Wednesday at 21.30 against Racing for the first leg of the quarter-finals.
