While Boca Juniors may struggle on the road, Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s side continue to have no such worries in La Bombonera and on Saturday afternoon had Temperley beaten within 25 minutes.
With Carlos Tevez immediately pulling the strings in his withdrawn role, it was the former Juventus forward’s pass that split the visitors’ defence and allowed Ricardo Centurión to roll the ball into the path of Gino Peruzzi for a simple opener. El Gasolero failed to learn their lesson and minutes later, Tevez threaded a pass through to the in-form Cristian Pavón and the youngster delicately clipped the ball over Matías Ibáñez.
Two-down after ten minutes it got worse for Temperley when Gastón Aguirre sliced Centurión’s low cross into his own net and midway through the first half, the contest was over.
Boca were able to coast for the remainder of the match but Walter Bou rifled in a fourth after the break to make the score line even more emphatic.
Earlier in Liniers, Talleres earned a third straight win and in the process heaped pressure on Omar De Felippe and Vélez Sarsfield, who continue to slide perilously close to the relegation zone. The excellent Jonathan Menéndez gave the visitors the lead shortly before half time after running onto Emanuel Reynoso’s wonderfully weighted through ball and with El Fortín unable to find an equaliser, Victorio Ramis ensured victory for La T in stoppage time.
Talleres are certainly enjoying themselves at the moment but Córdoba’s other side, Belgrano continue to struggle. El Pirata’s woeful attack was once again unable to find a way through and allowed Quilmes to leave the Estadio Mario Kempes with a point.
Vélez Sarsfield 0 – 2 Talleres
Belgrano 0 – 0 Quilmes
Boca Juniors 4 – 0 Temperley
