Five Touches And In: Boca Juniors Score With Expertly Executed Set Play vs Belgrano (Video & GIF)

By Chris Wright

Not that there was anyone there to see it* but Boca Juniors lost the first game of the Clausura 2-3 at home against Belgrano on Sunday evening – though the home side’s opener was a thing of superbly-executed beauty.

Presiding over a freekick some 40-yards out from the Belgrano goal, Boca took just five well-regimented touches to get the ball over the line – the final headed touch being provided by defender Juan Forlin…

(*Boca were playing behind closed doors at La Bombonera as punishment for crowd trouble in a previous game)


Oh yes, nicely done! We love a good pre-meditated set-play here at Pies. ‘Tis a thing of true splendour.

Here it is again from the reverse angle…

    Nice. The sort of free-kick that could only be scored without 50,000 PorteƱos screaming at you to “hit the fucking thing!”.

    I count six touches for the record ;)
