Results went in their favour throughout the weekend, as Independiente drew with Sarmiento, Aldosivi lost to Newell’s, Nueva Chicago drew with Union, and River Plate drew with Quilmes. It means Boca are now one of five sides with six points from two games.

The game itself was won thanks to a goal from Juan Manuel Martinez from the spot, and another from Jonathan Calleri.

Boca played the entire second half with ten men due to the expulsion of their goalkeeper, Agustin Orion, after he punched opposition striker Juan Dimeno.

It means Boca have won four and drawn one of their five competitive games in all competitions so far this season, and they are being widely tipped as potential champions in the Argentine media.

Velez Sarsfield, Estudiantes, San Lorenzo, and Rosario Central are the other teams with maximum points.
