SUNDAY: Orión sees red but Boca still too much for Temperley (VIDEO)


The result may have been what virtually everyone expected but Boca’s trip to Temperley but there was a little more to the supposed mismatch than South American giants squashing the provincial minnows. Boca had come close to opening the scoring during the opening twenty minutes but it was in the 27th minute that the pressure finally told. Marcelo Meli dashed behind the Temperley defence and although his touch was heavy, he was upended by goalkeeper, Federico Crevelli and an undeniable penalty was awarded. Juan Manuel Martínez tucked it away but one of Boca’s most experienced players handed the advantage back to the home side. Shortly before the break, Agustín Orión inexplicably leaned his head into the face of Juan Dinenno and when the striker fell to the ground in apparent pain, the referee had little option but brandish a red card. The moment of madness allowed Temperley to enjoy some decent spells in the second half but they were unable to breakdown Boca’s defence. With the match in injury time, Boca wrapped up all three points thanks to a superb, individual goal from Jonathan Calleri. The young striker cut in from the right touch-line and produced an inch-perfect lob over the head of Crevelli for a fine winning goal. After their midweek Libertadores victory, Rodolfo Arruabarrena will be pleased to see his side with maximum points at the top of the table.

Temperley  0 – 2  Boca Juniors
