It may only be preseason but Aldosivi were served a significant morale boost with a 3-1 win over Boca Juniors in Mar del Plata on Saturday evening.
Since Guillermo Sara’s injury, the goalkeeper position has been a cause of much debate for Boca Juniors and Atlético Madrid loanee Axel Werner didn’t help his cause with a dreadful mistake for Aldosivi’s opener. Cristian Llama’s long punt downfield was completely misjudged by the 20-year-old and bounced over his head into the net.
Early in the second half and further defensive lapses were punished by Aldosivi allowing Jonathan Galván and Alexis Castro to extend the lead.
Guillermo Barros Schelotto handed Junior Benítez his Boca debut and the on-loan Sporting Lisbon forward pulled a goal back but it was a mere consolation.
Aldosivi 3 – 1 Boca Juniors
