Argentinos Juniors and Patronato equaled 1 to 1 in a match played on Wednesday afternoon at the Diego Maradona stadium in La Paternal, in which they controlled one time each, and now both share a position in the table with 14 points each.
Those led by Gabriel Milito seemed to struggle with the dimensions of the field, since Cháves was located as a libero outside the area when they went out playing and his teammates sought to force Patronato to be located near the area.
Delfino proposed that Delgadillo handle the ball and thus came the play that caused a penalty in favor of the Entre Rios. The former Vélez made a long overflow, almost to the end of the court, sent a cross, the ball fell to Junior Arias, who finished off and the ball hit Villalba’s hand.
The same Uruguayan striker converted from a penalty in the 7th minute and the result of 1-0 favored Delfino’s proposal, who placed Gudiño wide open for the counterattack on the right sector.
The play did not appear to be a penalty and the referee Espinosa further increased the doubts, when minutes later in a similar play in favor of Argentinos Juniors he decided not to sanction a penalty.
Gudiño’s movements were accompanied by Delgadillo, handling the ball through the left sector of his attack to supply Sosa Sánchez and Arias. In the 35th minute, a high center came to the Argentinos area, Cháves went out of the small area to clear, hit Sosa Sánchez with a fist and committed a clear penalty.
The foul was not charged by Espinoza and also Cháves had to leave his position to Federico Lanzillotta, since he injured his ankle when he fell because he hit the floor very hard.
In the second half, Milito put together a line of four and threw Mateo Coronel to join Hauche and Reniero, seeking to put Patronato against the Ibáñez goal.
And opening the game gave the local more control of the ball, which was pushing the entrerrianos, although the last line of the Board responded very well.
Thus came the Argentine tie at 24, when between Reniero and Coronel they built an inaccurate wall in the small area, the defenders of Patronato could not remove it and the former San Lorenzo pushed it on the line.
Delfino used up his changes to balance the actions and regain control of the ball, in addition to removing his team that was very close to Ibáñez.
But at 39 Luciano Gómez was able to convert the second goal for the local, when on the edge of the area a defender was pulled from above and shot from the left but the ball hit the post and went out.
Separate paragraph for the referee Espinosa, whose pedantic attitudes cost him a new incident today, this time with Milito, who was expelled, after accusing the judge of being a “sobrador”.
In full extension, Argentinos had two opportunities at the feet of Lucas Villalba and Sosa, and in the latter, Ibáñez had a remarkable save that allowed his team to take a point to Entre Ríos.
