Caracas hung up on the champion's spirit last Tuesday to get a historic point after drawing 1-1 against the mighty Boca Juniors, in a match that validated the opening of both nights for the group stage of the Copa Libertadores.
In a UCV Olympic stadium that registered 15.307 people, leaving one of the best assists in the current decade, the capital responded in an abysmal way with a red cast that left a positive balance and maintains its good record in clashes against Argentine clubs.
The captain of the current Venezuelan soccer monarch, Robert Hernández, does not stop polishing his right leg by giving away plethora of goals like the one he scored against the Xeneize free kick that served for equality in the Los Chaguaramos arena, thus reaching four shouts in the bell.
“Personally, I feel good, fortunately things are working out for me. We knew that playing on the wing was a virtue, knowing the good half of the court they present. We had a good first half winning the second ball. Later we were decreasing. I am happy with the attitude of the team, ”Hernández stressed at the end of the match.
Caracas is the youngest squad in this edition of Libertadores, an institution that is characterized by promoting the quarry since the arrival of helmsman Noel Sanvicente.
The San Félix driver pointed out that the idea was to make his debut by getting the result against an opponent who is a favorite in the cup. “Adding against Boca is super valuable for us, especially for starting losing. This tie gives us a bit of confidence ”, he said.
The students of San Vicente have to continue working with two teams to face the domestic tournament and the cup competition. Tomorrow, the citizens of the capital visit the garden city to face Aragua for the sixth day of the Futve League. Then, on Saturday, they arrive in Paraguay to collide with Libertad on Tuesday in their second international appearance in the South American club tournament.
