Boca Juniors lost 3-0 in La Bombonera with Banfield for the Professional League

Without Advíncula and Zambrano, Boca Juniors suffered its second consecutive loss at La Bombonera by falling to Banfield for the sixth round of the 2022 Professional League .

Boca Juniors has the Copa Libertadores as a priority and showed it again in the Professional League . With a totally alternative team, the ‘xeneize’ team lost this Friday 0-3 at La Bombonera against Banfield for the sixth date of the competition, which means their second consecutive loss at home.

With the Libertadores round of 16 duel against Corinthians already on the horizon, coach Sebastián Battaglia had used an alternative cast with Unión, where the blue and gold fell.

Now against Claudio Vivas’s Banfield , Battaglia made the same decision (playing the round of 16 against ‘Timao’ on Tuesday 5), he did not use a single minute of the players who are emerging as starters and the ‘Drill’ passed over at La Bombonera. In addition, Boca Juniors had the casualties of the expelled Carlos Zambrano and ‘Cali’ Izquierdoz.

All the goals were given in the first stage. Giuliano Galoppo opened the account with a scissors shot at 21′ after the assistance of Ramiro Enrique (son of Héctor ‘Negro’ Enrique), who would be the protagonist of the following goals.

Ramiro Enrique converted in the 34th minute from Urzi’s cross and Galoppo assisted the 21-year-old striker’s brace.

Banfield jumped to third place in the 2022 Professional League and registers 11 points, while Boca Juniors stayed with 9 units and is currently in seventh position.
