The 2-0 of Boca against Olimpo de Bahía Blanca for the Argentine Cup
It was not an easy night for Boca Juniors. Against Olimpo, in Chaco, Xeneize won 1-0 due to Agustín Sández’s goal in the first half, but in the second half the game was not convincing and the team from Bahia seemed to be close to a tie until the penalty for La La Riverbank.

Referee Lucas Comesaña interpreted a contact by Claudio Cevasco on Darío Benedetto in the area as an infraction and therefore scored a penalty for Hugo Ibarra’s team 30 minutes into the second half. In a cross to the area, the center forward collapsed when he felt a load from behind and the judge gave him the right. In the shot, the former Arsenal did not miss and scored the 2-0 that sentenced the series of the 32nd final.
The charge was an error by the referee since the foul, like the push, is measured by the applied force and its consequences. In this case, Cevasco’s contact did not have the force to be considered as an infraction. In addition, the Olimpo player was booked, another mistake.

The players of the Federal A team and their coach, Arnaldo Sialle, protested the ruling, but in this competition there is no VAR and therefore there was no worthwhile anger. The Xeneize stretched the advantage and after the half made his audience explode with joy.
Finally, Boca Juniors prevailed 2-1 and in the next instance against the winner of the match between Barracas Central and Estudiantes de Caseros. No date or venue has been set for this match yet.
