Yesterday Palmeiras beat 0-3 River Plate in Argentina and today Santos also have a great match in Buenos Aires, drawing 0-0 against Boca Juniors, in a stadium filled in colors and images alluding Diego Armando Maradona.
The match did not leave much for commentary. Neither Boca nor Santos generated a lot of opportunities and it looked as if Santos was contempt with the score.
The most relevant maybe was that Izquierdoz (ARG) did a pontential penalty foul but it was not indicated as such by the referee.
The second matches will take place next week and the two teams with a better record in the Copa are the favorites to advance to an All-Brazilian final.
