As a local, San Lorenzo beats Boca Juniors

Despite starting at a disadvantage, San Lorenzo defeated Boca Juniors 2-1 on Saturday at Novo Gasómetro and added to their bitterness in a week that also included the elimination of the Xeneize team in the Copa Libertadores.

Marcos Rojo scored Boca’s goal in the 28th minute. Agustín Giay equalized at 37 and the Paraguayan Adam Bareiro scored the winning goal for the hosts at 57.

Boca came from being eliminated in the round of 16 of Libertadores against Corinthians this Tuesday. The local league, which is playing its seventh date, is now Boca’s most important contest for the rest of the year, although it is still in contention in the Argentine Cup.

Sebastián Battaglia ceased to be the coach of Xeneize with the elimination in Libertadores. Hugo Ibarra, a former player who was the reserve’s coach, was responsible for the direction of this game on Saturday, in the seventh match.

The red-black defender opened the scoring with a free kick from Sebastián Villa.

The Blaugranas controlled the last half of the first half and equalized with a shot by Giay after a rebound by Agustín Rossi.

The second for the locals came through a defender from the left of Ezequiel Cerutti, who Bareiro headed into the net.

The Paraguayan could have extended it with a penalty in the 75th minute, but missed the shot from the left side.

Also on Saturday, Newell’s Old Boys drew 1-1 with Platense in their visit to the Ciudad de Vicente López stadium. With this point, he is the only leader of the championship in the absence of the game Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata that can reach or surpass the red-black team.

Newell’s took the lead due to an error by the brown team. Defender Juan Pablo Pignani passed behind, goalkeeper Marcos Ledesma controlled poorly and the ball went into the goal at 41. Juan Cruz Esquivel equalized with a spectacular forehand from an angle at 82.
