Argentinos were very fast with 10 players and left their undefeated against the "U" Catholic

Argentinos Juniors were left with 10 players due to the expulsion with a direct red card of forward Gabriel Hauche before half an hour of the first half and at the same height of the second he received the goal of Argentine Fernando Zampedri that ended up sealing the victory by 1 to 0 of the visitor Universidad Católica, de Chile and left him undefeated although maintaining the top of Group F of the Copa Libertadores after four dates.

The matches are born with proposals from both contestants and this becomes evident in the first minutes, but there are always conditions that modify these initial structures and they are generally goals from one or the other side, and very rarely expulsions. Well, Argentinos got the latter.

And even the expulsion of Gabriel Hauche at 27 minutes could have had another 20 before that would have complicated his assembly even more, since the central defender Miguel Torrén committed a foul that the Brazilian referee Wilton Pereira Sampaio punished with a yellow card when it was deserved. of a direct red as the one that received the ex Racing Club.

Surely if Torrén had gone before Hauche the forward would have been “cannon fodder” to reconstitute the defense, since Gabriel Milito would have relieved him by a central defender, especially if he wanted to maintain the line of three in defense.

But the concrete thing was that the exit of Hauche the only thing that changed was the offensive scaffolding of Argentinos, although obviously the high pressure on the exit of the Catholic University also became softer with one less striker.

Due to that expulsion, Argentines did not lower the flags of that football of control and deepening by the sides that until now had given them a perfect result, to the point of finishing the first round of this phase as the leader of Group F with an ideal score after three games that he won with repeated accuracy 2-0.

And since the Catholic University is a team with limited measures compensated by the needs with which it came to this game as third in the group with six units less than Argentines, the ambitions of the “Bug” were not curtailed.

Of course, with one less the effort is greater and, therefore, if it is not achieved in the front arch, with the passage of time that natural wear makes the weakest end up equating the development just by having the legs fresher. , although the local was always superior at the head.

Thus, Argentinos played “as if nothing” what remained of the first half and also the first quarter of an hour of the second, when precisely the development was even, essentially because the arches were far away for both of them.

Until just before half an hour there was a change of front over the Argentinos area and a header to the middle that was connected left-handed inside the small area by the Argentine striker Fernando Zampedri to achieve the opening of the scoreboard.

The nerves then became important protagonists of the meeting and its consequences fell on the most unexpected place, that of the Chileans, who five minutes after converting their goal also were left with one less player for the double yellow that the former striker naively won. Hurricane, Parque de los Patricios, Edson Puch.

It was then 10 against 10 until the end, with Argentinos attacking in pursuit of equality shouting “let’s cheer up and go” launched from the bench by Milito.

Another goal disallowed by Zampedri for a dubious forward position could have ended the story, but Sampaio’s penalty left the homeowner alive.

But the three options closest to the draw that were left for La Paternal fell at the feet of a defender like Kevin MacAllister, who in the three opportunities in which he prowled the area of ​​the Argentine goalkeeper Matías Dituro resolved as such, leaving his team definitely not undefeated although maintaining the lead with 9 units, while for the “U” reaching 6 points renews their hopes of qualifying.
