Copa Libertadores / Zamora 0 - Boca 0 / ZZzzzzzzzz...
Any normal human being, Boca fan or not, probably needed between 3 and 4 cups of coffee to stay awake through this unbelievable boring game.
Boca did it again. Slow game, they had the ball probably 70% of the match but couldn't break the defense of a weak Venezuelan team who was playing their first Copa Libertadores ever.
It took 90 minutes for Boca to create a real scoring position when ex Velez and Fiorentina striker Santiago Silva, playing his 1st game for Boca, hit the post with a header that looked like the winning goal.
Group 4 is completed with Arsenal and Fluminense (the Brazilian team won 1-0 at home in the other 1st game of the group) so everything is still open but after today's game it was obvious that Boca will need to improve if they want to be candidates to win this tournament for a 6th time (the last one in 2007).
Tomorrow Lanus will make its debut at home against Brazilian giant Flamengo, and on Thursday the last Argentinean team, Godoy Cruz, will debut at home against 5 times Copa Libertadores champion Peñarol.
