Boca changed its image and thrashed Monagas

Boca’s primary mission was not to reach first place in his group in the Copa Libertadores, but to change the image he left last week in Mendoza. The win he suffered against Godoy Cruz upset the foundations in the intimacy of the squad.

The farewell match for Riquelme served to make them forget what had happened for a few days, but the level displayed by the team would be decisive for the public’s verdict at the end of the match.

What the players offered on the field of play was still not convincing, and the errors in the deliveries of the ball were continuous. The coach Almirón placed Barco as a midfielder on the left, and the youth player was the only one who contributed something positive.

Boca had no connection between their lines and Monagas took the opportunity to get closer to Romero. Arroyo had a chance but finished off wide. The locals deepened with a counterattack and the action ended in a penalty against Barco, but later the VAR confirmed that there was an advanced position.

The tension increased when the Paraguayan Valdez was sent off for a protest about the Uruguayan referee. However, when he was left with a man less, the locals began to play better. The footballers seemed to feel the emotional impact and were more determined in their interventions.

The emotional boost caused the first goal to arrive through Weigandt, who appeared behind everyone to define without a mark.

Almirón brought in Roncaglia in the second half to rearm the defense, and the one who did not return to the field of play was Payero, one who had accompanied Barco well.

Roncaglia was one of the most targeted in the defeat in Mendoza, and on top of that, with the first ball he touched, he almost compromised his own goal. The situation began to clear up for Boca, when Arroyo was also sent off for receiving the second yellow card, after four minutes.

Barco completed his great performance converting the second goal with his right foot, after a combination with Fabra on the left side. The boy celebrated for the first time with the Boca shirt, and continues to establish himself in the team.

The other one who also stood out was Medina, who left with an ovation. The admitted Vázquez scored two more goals, and that made the fans more satisfied, who expected a convincing victory.

First place in the area was assured, and together with Deportivo Pereira they were the ones waiting for a rival in the round of 16.
