Boca responded well in the superclásico

In a match that seemed balanced, River Plate showed they had better opportunities and greater control of the ball, while Boca Juniors sought to be more direct in their actions. It was River who managed to capitalize on the spaces left by the Xeneize team, culminating in a play in which Enzo Díaz found Solari to open the scoring with a goal.

However, Boca showed notable improvement as the match progressed, getting closer to the rival goal and gaining ground on the wings, especially with Blanco, whose overflow allowed Medina to equalize the score with an accurate shot. In the end, Boca finished in a more solid position, generating clearer scoring opportunities, while River failed to maintain the same level and showed certain doubts in its game.

The confrontation culminated with 7 shots on goal by River and 4 shots by Boca.

Analysis of the first half

The first half of the game went by quite slowly, largely due to the numerous fouls committed. So far, 4 yellow cards have been shown, with 13 fouls indicated for Boca and 5 for River.

From the beginning, River has maintained control of the ball, while Boca has opted for a more cautious strategy, waiting for its opportunity. Despite some chances generated by River, only one managed to find its way to the three sticks. As the minutes passed, Boca has been gaining ground in the match, exerting constant pressure in the middle of the field and winning individual duels. This change in the pace of the game can be largely attributed to the strength of the Xeneize team's four midfielders.

However, both teams have shown some weakness in retaining the ball in the midfield. Despite River's efforts, he has not yet found that goal reference that he needs so much in the match.

News – Boca Juniors

Midfielder Vicente Taborda is not on the list, which is striking given his lack of participation in the team this season. In his place is Marcelo Weigandt, the right back, who has not had opportunities this season either. The most notable absence is that of Pol Fernández, who suffered an ankle injury during his last match at La Bombonera. On the other hand, Marcos Rojo, although he has been training with the group, has not yet recovered his physical fitness and is not at 100% to participate in the match.

News - River Plate

Uncertainty hovers in the atmosphere of River Plate facing the Superclásico, where the main unknown falls on the presence of Miguel Ángel Borja. Although the forward finally appears on the list of concentrates for the confrontation against Boca Juniors, his physical condition is not optimal due to a left adductor injury suffered just 10 days ago. Accompanying this situation is Kranevitter, the central midfielder, who has worked intensely during the week to recover from a muscle tear and thus be available for the match.

The rivalry between River Plate and Boca Juniors dates back to the dawn of the 20th century, when they shared territory in the La Boca neighborhood. The first recorded clash between both institutions occurred in 1908 with a 2-1 victory in favor of Boca Juniors. However, the first official success was achieved by River in 1913.

In terms of direct eliminations in national tournaments, River Plate has managed to qualify against its eternal rival on 9 occasions, while Boca Juniors has eliminated River on 4 occasions. In international competitions, the balance tips slightly in favor of River, with 4 successful eliminations against Boca, compared to the 3 times that Boca has left out River.

However, a chapter that will remain engraved in the history of football is the final of the 2018 Copa Libertadores. River Plate and Boca Juniors met in the second leg match for the title. After an incident that forced the match to be moved to the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid, Spain, River emerged victorious 3-1 in overtime, thus securing their fourth Copa Libertadores title at the expense of their longtime rival, on December 9, this year.

Of the 214 times they have faced each other, Boca has won 78, River 71 and they have drawn 65 times. In international competitions, of the 32 clashes registered, Boca has emerged victorious on 11 occasions, River on 10, and on 11 occasions the score ended equal.

Boca Juniors wants to wake up in front of their classic

The xeneize team approaches the classic with results that are similar to those of the millionaire team, although with some particularities that make the difference. Boca Juniors has two wins, one loss and three draws in this phase of the competition, maintaining an identical number of draws compared to its rival. It is relevant to note that two of these three ties occurred at home, against Defensa y Justicia and Sarmiento, while the third occurred during their visit to Platense. However, the most striking thing is the marked difference in Boca's attack compared to River, the xeneize team has conceded just six goals.

In their last match against Lanús, Boca suffered a 2-1 defeat, with the team's only goal scored by Blondel. During the match, Boca was seen uncomfortable and disconnected, especially in the midfield, which translated into a first half lacking ideas and fluidity in its game. Despite a slight improvement in the second half, Boca failed to generate clear goal situations and lacked the necessary energy to play the match with intensity.

River Plate seeks to remain undefeated

River Plate is in second place in Group A in the League Cup, being surpassed by Independiente in the standings. So far, the millionaire team has shown a solid performance, registering three wins and three draws in this phase of the tournament. The fact that they have not yet suffered a defeat in the competition stands out.

Regarding its defensive performance, River's goal has been violated twice during this stage. The first goal was scored by Argentinos Juniors on the opening day, while the second came in the last match against Banfield. In contrast, the team led by Demichelis has managed to score a total of 12 goals so far in the league.

It is relevant to mention that two of the three draws obtained by River have been at home, against Argentinos Juniors and Banfield, while the third tie occurred during their visit to Atlético Tucumán.

In their last match against Banfield at home, the result was a 1-1 draw, with the tying goal scored by Pablo Solari in the 90th minute of the match. It was possible to observe a River with certain difficulties in terms of creativity in the last three quarters of the field.
