After 40 days, Darío Benedetto returned to the ownership of Boca Juniors and scored three goals against Patronato in the Argentine Super Cup that takes place at the Madre de Ciudades Stadium in Santiago del Estero.

A spectacular show was put on before the ball rolled in Santiago del Estero
First he warned with a header that passed close to 14 minutes and then he licked his lips to execute the truncated penalty that referee Andrés Merlos first penalized by the hand of Matías Ruiz Díaz, but which he later dismissed due to a previous advanced position by Luca Langoni, who commanded the previous center.

In the add-on, Pipa converted again and it was after 7 minutes that he scored his second goal on the Santiago night with a header. And at 17, he named another good play after him in which Villa extended for Fabra, who yielded to the penalty spot for the onslaught of former Arsenal and Defensa y Justicia.
