BUENOS AIRES (AP) — 19-year-old Luca Langoni’s goal helped Boca Juniors to secure a 1-0 win over Sarmiento and establish themselves as the leaders of the Argentine Football League.
Rangoni scored in the 45th minute of the game at the Eva Perón Stadium, giving Boca a total of 48 goals to extend their lead over their pursuers. Hugo Ibarra’s side could go even further if they do well against Gimnasia y Esgrima la Plata, which was postponed last week due to serious disruption.RELATED
Goalkeeper Sebastian Meza’s penalty on Rangoni gave Xenays their first golden opportunity. Defender Marcos Rojo kicked the biggest penalty and Meza managed to clear it. Seconds later, the defender injured his right knee and had to leave the field.
Boca’s goal came in an effective counter-attack led by Cristian Medina. It happened to Dario Benedetto. The center forward on the left flank was low due to precise touches from the youthful Luca Langoni.
