Inter 2 – 0 Boca & Palmeiras 0 – 1 Argentinos: the goals

Following River’s loss at home to Chivas in the Copa Sudamericana on Wednesday night, Boca and Argentinos played just a little too late for coverage to appear right away on HEGS. Mixed fortunes for Argentina’s representatives against Brazilian opposition: Boca were well beaten by 2006 Copa Libertadores winners Internacional in Porto Alegre, Alex striking twice, whilst Argentinos travelled to Sao Paulo and won narrowly, with goalkeeper Sebastián Torrico saving a penalty and Sergio Escudero scoring the only goal. See all the goals right here.

  1. Why did Ischia play his kids? What was he saving first team players for? They played fairly well, tho Garcia was badly fooled on the second goal.

    Sam, wasn’t it 2006 when Inter won the Lib?

  2. Bloody hell yes it was, sorry. Sao Paulo won in 2005. Corrected. Thanks Justin.

    I suspect Ischia was giving the reserves a run-out because the Copa Sudamericana is somewhere below the English League Cup in terms of priorities for a team like Boca. Though of course if they get to the semis and have another shot at adding another international ‘star’ to their badge, they’ll probably start playing the first XI…

  3. Yeah I know it’s not the biggest, but this is a club that put a star on its badge for winning the Supercopa Masters, whatever that was.

  4. I’m guessing Pompilio has made winning the local tournament the main priority for Boca. That said, I think that actually accomplishing that goal will be very difficult. San Lorenzo is playing lights out and there are other teams in the mix as well. Boca is just not that good right now. No Palermo, basically no Palacio and you know there are still some simmering personality problems regardless of the party line.

    Against Inter Boca had no clue how to make the last pass and no answer for Alex. Chavez turned the ball over repeatedly. Plus Garcia is obviously a talent in goal, but real green. I guess Caranta will be packing his bags come December/January. His story should be interesting.

  5. I can’t believe Boca have let this happen with Caranta. Does anyone know the story? Roman’s play during the Copa Libertadores win in 2007 overshadowed everyone else, but Caranta has been mostly brilliant since replacing the woeful Bobadilla. Garcia does look a talent but I doubt he’s ever going to reach Caranta’s level, and he’s going to keep making mistakes as he learns on the job.
