Boca Juniors and San Lorenzo will both be looking to bounce back from the disappointment of failure at the end of last season; Boca limped out of the Copa Libertadores at the semi final while San Lorenzo where resoundly beaten by Lanús in the Transición final and so certainly Guillermo Barros Schelotto will be the happier of the two coaches after Sunday night’s match.
Goals from Federico Carrizo and Pablo Pérez handed Boca a morale boosting win a week before the season begins officially as Barros Schelotto knows there will be no more excuses in the coming months.
San Lorenzo are under new management and there is still plenty of work to be done for Diego Aguirre; Los Cuervos looked well organised but struggled to pose a significant threat to Guillermo Sara’s goal.
Carrizo fired in from Gino Peruzzi’s cut-back midway through the first half and although Pérez sealed the win ten minutes from time with a superbly struck shot from distance, the midfielder was perhaps lucky to still be on the pitch for an earlier challenge on Sebastián Blanco.
Boca Juniors 2 – 0 San Lorenzo
