BUENOS AIRES (AP) — Rodrigo Gallo’s brace gave Taleres a 2-1 win over Córdoba, ending leaders River Plate’s unbeaten streak at 10, while Boca Juniors were inspired by their Superclassic defeat. recovered and won. Another game on the 16th, Belgrano won 2-0 at “La Bombonera”. Dates of the Argentine Football League.
The crisis deepened for Fernando Gago’s side in another match on Sunday as Pratense beat Racing Club 3-0.RELATED
The ‘Millionaires’ had a severe handicap at the ‘Mario Kempes’ stadium against the competition’s top scoring team, Talleres. And the ‘T’ team delivered on that promise with a stunning second goal, with two goals from Gallo in the 63rd and 73rd minutes. River was down to 79 points by substitute Matias Suárez.
With the Cordovan team’s win, River remains the sole leader with 37 points, followed by San Lorenzo on five and Talleres himself on six.
Martín Demichelis surprised from the start by bringing out mixed midfielders like Rodrigo Arriendro and betting again on two front-line men, one of whom was Salomon London, who had been underperforming in Córdoba. Thus the visit lost its balance in the middle.
Furthermore, the coach chose to use the Venezuelan instead of the Colombian Miguel Borja. Borja came into high confidence after deciding his lawsuit with Boca at noon a week ago.
Both goalkeepers performed well in the first stage where there were many goal scenes. In addition, referee Nicolás Ramirez blew the penalty whistle to the venue shortly after the start, and later overturned the decision at the request of VAR (there was no foul on Ezequiel Barco).
During the interval, the “Millionaire” coach corrected Flyer’s position and his team took over the action, though he was not injured. And Tageres made the most of the River Foundation misunderstanding.
Paraguayan Ramón Sosa’s superb individual skill led to a rebound that saw Gallo swing into the net before Gallo doubled the lead with a stunning left-footed shot from outside the area.
Finally, Demichelis chose to miss London and substitute Suárez headed in after an excellent Milton Kasco assist. Borja’s turn came next, and he nearly leveled at discount.
With “La Bombonera” Boca liquidated Belgrano in one fell swoop. In the 49th minute, Martín Paelo converted from outside the area (goalkeeper Nahuel Lozada was responsible) and just three minutes later Dario Benedetto put a sharp cross from Peru’s Luis Advincula into the net (Paelo was offside on the previous play).
It was a convincing performance by Jorge Almiron’s team. Unlike the 1-0 defeat to River in the “Monumental”, they decided on a purely attacking formation (Colombians Franck Fabra and Benedetto returning from injury) and imposed conditions. Before the overly conservative Belgrano.
His win leaves ‘Xenaise’ 16 points behind River with 11 days to go. Meanwhile, the “Pirates” were temporarily demoted to sixth place.
In a duel between the needy, Platense dealt a heavy blow to Racing, narrowly earning one point out of the best 21 in the league. “Calamar” remain in the relegation zone despite the win.
Martín Palermo’s side won at home thanks to goals from Gonzalo Valdivia, Paraguayan Ronaldo Martínez and Nicolas Servette from the penalty spot.
In addition, Defense & Justice (played over an hour outnumbered) and Estudiantes de la Plata equalized 1-1 at Florencio Barrera.
