All the goals came in the second half. It was Boca Juniors the team that opened the score with winger Pedro Calomino on 55 minutes. Nevertheless, with 15 left, Nacional scored two goals that allowed the squad to win their third Aldao Cup trophy, thanks to Ángel Romano and goalkeeper Andrés Mazali who, as a curious fact, played as forward in this match.
