Eduardo Salvio with two goals, one in each half, he gave victory to Boca Juniors in front of Libertad this Thursday on the third date of the Liberators, in a game in which the Argentines dominated the squad from start to finish R
amón diaz, very off and that was never in the game.
Boca Juniors goes on to lead Group H, with seven points, followed by Libertad, with 6, and by Venezuelan Caracas with 4, after beating Medellín, without any integer.
Salvio opened the scoring in the fifth minute and got the double in the 83rd, becoming the figure of the match and the top scorer for his team in this Libertadores.
The porteños played comfortable and were unmarked at pleasure in the absence of proposals from a Libertad who did not show that he is second in the local Apertura and that he has played eleven games in that tournament.
On the other hand, Boca Juniors, with the Argentine league suspended due to the cornavirus, appeared more shot and fit than Libertad, who in the first half was awaiting the inspiration of Óscar Cardozo and his scorer, Sebastián Ferreira.
But all the initiative and danger in that period was from Boca Juniors, who allowed himself to dose forces and who had among the outstanding, in addition to Salvio, Carlos Tévez and Gonzalo Maroni.
Tevez and Maroni were able to extend the distance in that part had it not been for the successful interventions of goalkeeper Martin Silva.
A Chilean from Ferreira in 22, who went over Esteban Andrada’s goal, was the clearest of the locals at that time.
In the second, Libertad pushed with the entry of Antonio Bareiro, replacing Rodrigo Bogarín, but he was not an enemy for a Boca Juniors who made the second with a genius from Salvio, who stopped the ball and crossed it with his left foot and beat Silva .
