A boat full of good news for Boca: 2-1 against Newell's with Colo as a figure

Jorge Almirón continues to benefit from the positional reconversion of his full-backs. First he was locating the Peruvian Luis Advíncula number 8 and now, Valentín Barco almost as a left winger. The 19-year-old from Colorado was the great architect of Boca’s 2-1 victory over Newell’s this Monday night, one of the best performances of the team so far in its difficult year.

It was Barco’s seventh game most advanced in the field and, taking out his resounding tactical debut against Godoy Cruz (0-4 in Mendoza), Boca has been enjoying it a lot. Six games and five wins in that period for the “new” Colo, who left with a great ovation when he had to be replaced.

The left-hander invented the 1-0 after taking a rebound, feinting and taking a strong cross/shot and confusing, especially for goalkeeper Lucas Hoyos, who practically put him in his own bow -after the game, Barco himself admitted that he shot a cross-. And just started the second half, at 20 seconds, The kid gave Cristian Medina a novel pass -another high level, in his new facet of reaching the rival area- so that he anticipates headlong the warm departure of the one from Rosario.

Beyond his mini crack, Boca knew how to dominate Newell’s tactically, who had the ball but not the scoring chances. It is worth noting that the superiority of xeneize did not hurt either the task of referee Fernando Echenique, who gave Pol Fernández a free hand to cut off the game in the midfield with numerous fouls and on top of that he disallowed a questionable goal for the visit when he was two goals down.

About the end and as not to clash with your semester, Boca was complicated by itself: Fabra canchered in his own field, lost it and the Paraguayan Recalde put the Rosario discount. For the statistics.

With this result, Boca is eighth with 41 points, three from the zone that qualifies for the next Libertadores. In addition, he adds seven without losing (six wins) while moving in the transfer market and dreams of the arrival of the Uruguayan Cavani. Newell’s, for its part, is 13th with 34 points and won just one of its last eight (six draws)..,
