After no faces were seen in 2020,

Boca Juniors

and

River Plate

will meet this Sunday for the second time in less than two months so far in 2021, and in this

Superclásico

in

La Bombonera

the local coach,

Miguel Ángel Russo

, He is looking to break a couple of

bad streaks

in his career.

The reality of

Marcelo Gallardo is different

, since his successful passage through the

Millionaire

was also carpeted by good results achieved especially in the

Boca

stadium itself

, a redoubt where he even celebrated more as a coach than in the

Monumental

, in which

he refers

to

Superclassics

.

River

, with the

Doll

as coach, will play for the tenth time at the

Boca

stadium

;

In the nine previous clashes, the

Millionaire

won two, drew five and lost another two, although one of them, the last defeat, was far from painful because it determined the classification to the final of the Copa Libertadores in 2019: it fell 1 to 0 after winning 2-0 at home.

Miguel Ángel Russo and Marcelo Gallardo, in the last Superclásico, played last January 2.

The streaks that Russo seeks to break against River

Miguel Ángel Russo

arrives at this

Superclásico

with three previous matches against

River Plate

as

Boca Juniors

coach

, in the two stages that he adds as

Xeneize

coach

.

And the best result he got was a draw, twice.

Russo's

first match

against the

Millionaire

was on April 15, 2007, on the tenth date of the Clausura Tournament.

In

La Bombonera

, and with the refereeing by Sergio Pezzotta, the

Superclásico

ended level 1 to 1, with goals from Pablo Ledesma at the minute of play for the local, and from Mauro Rosales for the team then led by Daniel Alberto Passarella.

Miguel Russo in his first Superclásico, in April 2007: it was a draw at La Bombonera.

In the following semester, already for the Apertura Tournament, a goal from Radamel Falcao García and the remaining penalty from Ariel Ortega, gave River a 2-0 victory at the

Monumental Stadium

, on October 7.

And

Russo's

last match

against Núñez's club was on January 2, in the

Diego Maradona Cup

: a 2-2 draw in a match that

Boca

started by winning with a goal from Ramón Ábila, in which

River

went to the front with goals from Federico Girotti and Rafael Santos Borré, and that Xeneize equalized through Sebastián Villa.

This meeting played in

La Bombonera

on an unprecedented date was the eighth crossing between

Russo

and

Gallardo

as coaches, in a history that greatly favors the

River

coach

, who never lost to the current Boca coach.

They officially met eight times: four wins for El

Muñeco

and four draws.

Miguel Russo leaves the Monumental after the defeat against River in October 2007, behind Martín Palermo, Pablo Ledesma and Sebastián Battaglia.

The first crossing was on August 17, 2014, for the second date of the transition tournament, Gallardo's team won 2-0 over Rosario Central.

Teófilo Gutiérrez, at 16 in the first half, and Leonardo Pisculichi, in the complement, were the scorers.

Almost two months later, they met in a direct elimination duel, in the 2014 Copa Argentina quarterfinals. It was on October 9 when the

Millionaire

faced Rosario Central in San Juan.

After equalizing without goals in the regulation 90 minutes, the pass to the semifinals was defined in penalties, in which

Canalla

won by 5 to 4.

The third confrontation took place a year later, on October 31, 2015, when

Russo was

managing Vélez Sarsfield.

River beat Fortín 1-0, thanks to a goal from Lucas Alario.

After a long period of time without seeing each other, they met again on March 6, 2019.

Russo

was in charge of Alianza Lima of Peru and shared Group A with River.

In Lima,

Gallardo

saved the undefeated with an agonizing goal from Cristian Ferreira, in the sixth minute of injury, for the 1 to 1 final.

On April 11, 2019, River thrashed Alianza Lima 3-0 at the

Monumental

with goals from Matías Suárez, Lucas Martínez Quarta and Nicolás De la Cruz.

Miguel Russo and Marcelo Gallardo in one of the duels in the 2019 Libertadores;

in this case, River against Alianza Lima.

In the same edition of the

Libertadores

,

Russo

went to Cerro Porteño in Paraguay.

There he faced

River

in the quarterfinals

.

In that instance, the

Doll

won again and went to the semifinals.

The first leg, at the

Monumental

, was 2-0 (Ignacio Fernández and Rafael Santos Borré, both from penalties).

The rematch, in Paraguay, ended 1 to 1 (Nicolás de La Cruz).

In July 2018 there was a ninth confrontation, but on a friendly basis.

In Florida, United States, the River de Gallardo thrashed 4-1 to Millonarios de Bogotá led by

Russo

, with goals for the Argentine team of Milton Casco, Lucas Pratto, Ignacio Scocco and Rafael Santos Borré.
