If it is true that commonplace that the processions go inside, Miguel Ángel Russo was in charge of exposing it to the view of all as soon as the series of penalties ended.

The coach said some truths, the kind that are admitted in victory and, out of prudence, are hidden in defeat:

"We had been playing badly



He admitted that such a celebration, rather than having eliminated his lifelong rival, was a revenge against the adversities that the squad insists on having experienced in the Copa Libertadores.

There was no invoice pass, like the National Team players in the Copa América.

No revenge, at least in those first minutes after qualifying.

It is still encouraging because victory enhances miseries.

He won and it happened but Russo, fox and old man

, knows that although his team closed the roads to River during much of the Superclásico, he was closer to losing than to winning in regular time.

Boca did not have a frank and clear shot until the penalties arrived.

And he did not have them because he did not have (does not have) a way of creating the situations.

Let's go back to Russo: "He had been playing badly."

And if.

Boca's coach, Miguel Ángel Russo.


Courage, shame, clenched teeth and sharp fangs to play River not playing


That was Boca's strategy.

And it is not a sin.

Today, Boca seems to be alone for that against opponents of the category of Marcelo Gallardo's team who found a last to the elegant shoe with which he usually handles the ball and takes the necessary steps to open spaces and demolish rivals.

River could not this time but still had a double-double in the plays in which Braian Romero and Bruno Zuculini could not convert from great positions, one at a time.

And the auction of De la Cruz remains, barely, high.

Haze Superclassic

Can it be counted as a goal situation that Red shot at Armani's goal and ended up twenty meters above the crossbar?

If simplifications are sought,

in those plays the 0-0 of the Superclásico is painted from the haze

, the cold and the breath of the "close friends" from the depopulated stands of the La Plata stadium.

A loss on penalties mitigates the adverse result.

It's known.

But if Boca must seriously rethink how he will win continuously playing without a game, River will also have to think why he cannot (at least on Wednesday night) solve the strategy of the rival's pressure, the strong leg and the permanent attention of the adversary. on the ball, the one who has it or carries it and the receivers.

It may just be a sensation, but at times it seemed that River was overly confident in the quality of his men, as if to say, "one is going to come out."

Not bad, because

when River gets one, he usually collapses and demolishes the one in front of him


Some "came out", but he did not specify them.

The worst of the sins that can be committed in football.

Consuelo: his ideology is intact, he was not outmatched in the game and was left out because he failed on penalties.

This is how the table of the Argentine Cup remained after Boca's triumph over River
