In just ten minutes, the controversial Superclásico added a new controversy.
Is that, after the 15 casualties that the Millionaire squad had, Boca did not take long to get ahead with a goal that left more than one doubt.
They ran for nine minutes and Boca advanced on the right. Buffarini opened the ball for Pavón that hit like a classic number 7. Carlitos Tevez then hit a diagonal, starting from the crescent towards the penalty spot. But on the way he met Maidana who was accompanying the play without looking at his back and following the player who was about to overflow. Then, Tevez threw the whole car on him: he hit him from behind, which caused the defender of River to trip and fall to the ground. That allowed captain Xeneize to enter alone towards goal. The center of Pavón did the rest, Tevez threw himself in a popcorn and nodded with his shoulder and head. Boca goal, 1-0 and controversial.

When the Doll Gallardo became aware of the situation, he did not hesitate to claim the fourth official.
His grim gesture said it all.
With VAR it did not happen.
