Finally, Boca Juniors triumphed with the Argentine Supercup
Argentina’s Grand Boca Juniors is the winner of Argentina’s Supercup for 2018. The “Genoese” defeated the final Rosario Central in a dramatic match at the Malvinas Argentinas stadium in Mendoza. Gustavo Alpharo’s players have won a penalty shoot-out of 6: 5, with regular time finishing 0: 0. The Buenos Aires club hit three beams in the last seven or eight minutes of the game. Throughout the meeting, Boca had the upper hand, but after the arrival of Christian Pavon and Carlos Tevez, the game was transferred to half of the team from Central
It was Paulo who could bring the victory in the regular time, but his shot at the 83th minute from the border of the penalty area hit the upper beam and the ball hit the goal, according to the referee, while the “yellow-blue” players wanted a goal but was not considered . In addition, the captain in this game, Dario Benedetto, also hit the bar and in the 89th minute the ball again met Rosario Central. This time Nandes, who earlier missed himself against the goal keeper, shot his head, and defender of the opponent in his attempt to kill sent the ball in the bar of his team. Shortly before that, Benedetto’s head was shot inches from the left beam.
So the crash had to be solved after penalty shootouts, as there are normally no extensions. Rosario Central fired first, and Boca were catching up to all five penalty shootouts. The two teams did not make a mistake, such as Ortizos, Gil, Parrot, Sampédri and Caruso were the Argentine Cup winner.
Benedetto, Tevez, Pavon, Villa and Buffarini signed up for Boca. Andrassa’s champion for the year 2018 saved Rinaldo’s penalty, and then defender Iskerdos, who scored his own goal in Copa Libertadores’s first final against River Plate, brought the first Super Cup in the history of Boca Juniors.
The Grand had so far lost three finals. Arsenal Sarandi (3: 4 after penalties) in 2015 from San Lorenzo (0: 4) and last year’s rival River Plate (0: 2) last year. So from the fourth attempt, Boca won the only award in Argentina, which was missing in the grandstand’s showcase.
South America is a record-breaking champion in its home country, as it is a total of 68th trophy in the club’s rich history. The Millionaire, who won last year two trophies on Boca’s back after defeating them for the Super Cup and the Libertadoris final, has 64 awards.
On the home scene, the River has a minimal advantage over the “Genoese”, with 47 (36 titles and 11 different cups) with 46 awards (33 titles and 13 different cups).
The game was historic to the legend Carlos Tevez, who won his 27th trophy in his incredible career. He is the second most profitable Argentine footballer in history, with only the phenomenon in front of him. Lionel Messi is the leader who has 36 gold medals in his career (34 with Barcelona). 35-year-old Carlitos won his ninth trophy with Boca.
“This is something unique,” Tevez said, leaning on the second place Lucio Gonzalez.
The late Alfredo Di Stefano, Esteban Cambiasso and Javier Mascherano have 25 trophies.
“This success is for Guyermo Squatto, who made Boca Champion twice in 2017 and 2018, and without him this game would not have been possible,” said Alfaro, the lucky coach, who changed Skokoto in December as Senior Coach .
