The Colombian started for the first time in this new cycle at the club and was key in the forceful first half of the team.
The Colombian connection showed itself again in Boca. This time without Sebastián Villa, still absent due to his legal situation, but with the return of Edwin Cardona, who for the first time was a starter in this new cycle at the club and showed all the technical qualities that are known to him, to begin give Miguel Ángel Russo solutions in what is coming.
Without that extreme position that he wore in his last stage at the club, with Guillermo Barros Schelotto as DT, Cardona settled on the left to later find his place as a link.
The former Tijuana, who came on loan for 18 months and for which Boca only pays half his salary, always found that filtered pass that teams need so much that they transform possession of the ball into a weapon and then hurt .
With the ball on his right foot, the most dangerous of the team appeared in that moment of the first stage in which Boca was lethal. To assist Fabra in the center who finished with 2-0 and to start the attack of the third.
Cardona empowered her teammates, connected them and made them part of each connection. Even for the first time in these Cup matches, Russo’s team was able to put Salvio to rest from the constant search for his sector and compensated for the offensive facet with the left sector.
With him, Fabra also grew. And Tevez found a partner who seems increasingly to be moving away from Soldano but who once again found a solution in the Colombian accent. At least for the first time since the Cup returned, Villa’s surname did not become a trend in the networks. The good foot of Cardona did it.
