The Colombian champion, Deportivo Cali, made Boca Juniors’ debut in Group E of the Copa Libertadores bitter on Tuesday by beating them 2-0 with a goal from Argentine central defender Guillermo Burdisso, who wore the Xeneize team shirt for four years. and another from the winger Jhon Vásquez.

The Colombians, who came into the match penultimate in the local tournament, got the victory thanks to the good performance of midfielder Kevin Velasco, who provided two assists in a hard-fought game, with few opportunities and marked by strong play.

In the first few minutes, the Xeneize team began to attack led by the Paraguayan Óscar Romero, a headache for the midfielders of the Azucarero team, and by the youthful Exequiel ‘Changuito’ Zeballos, who finished twice at the goal of the Uruguayan Guillermo de Loves in this section.

Meanwhile, the Colombians had their clearest opportunity of the first half at minute 13 when goalkeeper Agustín Rossi blundered in the clearance in a counterattack and the ball fell to winger Yony González, who got tangled up and ended up early by Peruvian central defender Carlos Zambrano .

With the passage of time, the game fell apart and Boca lost the clarity of the first minutes, although it was close to scoring again in a play at 39 in which a double save by De Amores saved Cali, since he first covered a shot from half distance from Darío Benedetto and then deflected the rebound shot, made by Zeballos.

The goals in the second half

In the complementary stage, the game got even more tangled and the teams had many difficulties to create opportunities, to which was added the terrible state of the grass of the Deportivo Cali stadium.

The flashes of Teo Gutiérrez brought the Azucareros closer to Rossi’s goal, while Romero continued to be the most important of the Argentines, although in the second half the Paraguayan had to look for the ball many times in his own territory because very little was reaching him .

When the game looked more tangled, the hosts opened the scoring at 69 on a free kick from the right side that Velasco took and that Burdisso managed to head the ball, despite how hard it was, to send it to the back of the net and put celebrate Venezuelan coach Rafael Dudamel.

Boca, stunned by the score, received the second blow ten minutes later when Velasco, in a great play down the left flank, overflowed and sent a creeping center to Vásquez, who appeared like a ghost and with a left-footed shot sentenced the game in favor of the Colombians.
