Boca Juniors Vs. River Plate, 2011 Super Clasico: Boca Scores Quick Double, Goes Up 2-0

Boca Juniors have scored a quick double, and after 32 minutes of play they're now up 2-0 on River Plate in the Super Clasico. Both goals have come off set pieces, partially indicating the severity of the loss of Jonathan Maidana to injury. Both have been off scrambles and slightly lucky bounces, but it doesn't matter how you score them. What matters is that Boca is 2-0 up on the scoreboard.

The first goal was scored in the 28th minute and created off of a Pablo Mouche corner kick. Luciano Monzon and others fought for the ball in the box, but it was a River player who put the ball into the back of the net. During the scramble, River goalkeeper Juan Carrizo somehow forced the ball into his own net after an odd couple of deflections, giving Boca a 1-0 lead.

They would double that lead four minutes later, with Martin Palermo applying the finish. Following a free kick that was cleared out of the box, the ball was sent back in and eventually ended up on the head of Palermo, who looped his header over Carrizo and into the back of the net. It was Palermo's 304th career professional goal, over 200 of which were scored with Boca.
