Buenos Aires (AP) —The Racing Club defeated Union de Santa Fe 1-0 at home on Saturday to extend its lead in Cup Zone A of the Argentine Football League, taking an important step towards qualifying for the playoffs.
In the other matches on the 10th day, San Lorenzo could not exceed the equality of 2-2 with Platense at home, and Independente drew with the same score on his visit to Colon.RELATED
In addition, Estudiantes de la Plata defeated Barracas Central 6-1 at home.
Fernando Gago’s “Academy” has beaten the club’s record for professionalism by winning nine consecutive victories in all types of competitions. This is an achievement previously held only by the legendary Jose Pittsti team.
At the “Cilindro” stadium, Enzo Coppetti scored a goal in the 27th minute, sealing the victory of the only undefeated team. Currently, the Avellaneda team has scored 7 points from Unión, which is on the fifth step of the table, and played with only 12 points.
The top four in each zone will advance to the Cup quarterfinals.
“You don’t have to relax, this will continue,” warned Copa Sudamericana’s group leader, Racing Scorer Coppetti.
In the “new gas tank” and Zone A, the uncoached drifting San Lorenzo-Pedro Troglio resigned after losing in mid-week in Copa, Argentina-misses a two-goal advantage and is almost equal to a modest platense. It wasn’t.
The goal of “Cyclone”, tentatively directed by Fernando Beron, had a foreign accent. Colombia’s Yeison Gordillo and Paraguay’s Adam Bareiro scored. Another Colombian, Kevin Andrade, was discounted for the “squid” equalized through Brian Mansilla.
After the epilogue, San Lorenzo fans (who won only one match in 10 days) whistled their players and asked them to resign as leaders.
Students are experiencing dream moments. They led the group in Copa Libertadores, defeating the recently promoted Barracas Central and regaining the lead in Zone B of the League Cup.
At Hulacan Pitch, where “Guapo” plays a local role, Ricardo Sierinsky’s team won with Gustavo del Petre’s brace and Uruguay’s Manuel Castro and Mauroboseri, Leandro Diaz (penalty) and Brian Orosco’s goals.
Bocelli, along with Martin Kauteruccio of Uruguay in Aldoshibi, is the highest scorer in the tournament, both scoring eight goals.
For “Pincha”, who played the full complement with 10 in the deficit with Emanuel Mas, the first 25 minutes was enough to score 4-0 and effectively enter the contest.
In the case of Barracas, Ivan Tapia, the son of Claudio “Chiki” Tapia, the president of the Argentine Football Association (AFA), was discounted.
Colon and Independente, on the other hand, did an interesting draw at Santa Fe, but neither helped (both stay outside the qualifying zone).
“Savalero” had twice the advantage of Lucas Bertrand and Miguel “El Purga” Rodriguez (a goal from a free kick). “Rojo” matched two headers, one by Domingo Blanco and one by Leandro Venegas.
At the end of Sunday, Boca Juniors will receive Lanus and River Plate will visit Banfield.
