Unión was pure impotence and was eliminated by his draw in the classic against Colón

Unión de Santa Fe was eliminated tonight from the Professional League Cup (LPF) by equaling 1-1 as a visitor to Colón, who had the pleasure of leaving his traditional adversary out of competition, while winning his group and now he waits for Talleres from Córdoba in the quarterfinals.

The “Sabalero” team took the lead at 41 ‘of the first half with a goal from Rafael Delgado, while the “Tatengue” equalized at 11’ of the complement by means of a penalty kick correctly sanctioned by the referee Ariel Penel, and executed by Juan Manuel García.

In this way, Colón was left with Zone 1 by adding 25 points, with a difference of three over Estudiantes de La Plata, and kept the playing field of the Brigadier López stadium undefeated.

Meanwhile, Unión left with the frustration of having wasted his opportunity, as he depended on himself to advance to the second phase.

The local, without shining, displayed at the beginning of the game the style that characterizes it since Eduardo Domínguez directs it and little by little began to command the actions, with a good job from Aliendro and Castro, who were in charge of the transition to the attack.

But that dominance, which was useful to control a rival without ideas, nevertheless lacked dangerous plays, except for a shot by Rodríguez at 21 ‘, which was lost outside, by Moyano’s right post.

Unión, who with the passing of the minutes was gaining in nervousness, barely had an approach to Burián’s goal at 23 ‘, with a center from the Chilean Peñailillo that Cañete headed weakly.

The growth of Farías and some appearances by “Pulga” Rodríguez left Colón on the edge of the advantage when the end of the first chapter was approaching.

At 39 ‘Bianchi warned, who headed wide when he was without a mark, after a corner from Rodríguez, who two minutes later repeated the action from the same place but with a different result.

The Tucumano’s new corner kick was cleared by a defender but Farías captured the ball outside the area and enabled Delgado, who with a soft touch from his left foot defeated goalkeeper Moyano.

With the income of Gastón González and Cristian Insaurralde, and a better performance of Acevedo, Unión had another face in the second half and did not have to wait too long to score equality.

At 11 ‘Gastón Comas entered the area with a stopped ball and was knocked down by Castro, in a clear penalty that Juan Manuel García changed for a goal with a strong shot in the middle of the goal that left Burián unanswered.

With the incentive of being only one goal away from qualifying, Unión was very dedicated on the rival field, but as it had happened at the beginning of the game, he had no imagination to generate danger.

Thus, Columbus did not go through major shocks and from a great job by Aliendro, the figure of the party, he was close to marking the gap through Castro, who under the arch could not avoid the crossing of a saving leg.

In the final part, Azconzábal’s team had a risky situation with a shot from outside by García, at 27 ‘, which Burián cleared with his legs.

From there, more than 20 minutes of helplessness for the visitor and their urgencies followed, without achieving clear approaches, while those led by Eduardo Domínguez let time run out, already thinking about their quarter-final commitment.
