Once again the penalties marked the fate of Boca, as its history marks. In Copa Libertadores and now, again in Copa Argentina. In this edition in which he achieved three classifications from the penalty spot.
The tremendous thing about Boca from the 12 steps is that he had 100% effectiveness in the shots: he got all those he kicked. First, eliminating River 4-1 (in the round of 16), with a great performance by Rossi at the Ciudad de La Plata Stadium and Izquierdoz’s last shot. Then it was, in Santiago el Estero as in the final, against Patronato (in the quarterfinals): the rival also kicked first (Sosa Sánchez made a mistake) and it was 4-2, with the last one from Pavón.
As a curiosity, against the Board of Trustees the definition was in the other arch of Santiago del Estero. With Talleres, Retegui hit him first and put it in, and Rossi began to win it by covering the second. Boca did not fail afterwards and the last turn was for Salvio, who like Pavón and Sandez, hit him great for 5-4. And to turn around and celebrate.
