San Lorenzo lost today against Patronato, from Paraná by 2 to 1, in the New Gasometer for the championship of the Professional Soccer League, still without winning at home, and deepened its crisis in the match corresponding to the 12th. contest date. Patronato forward Axel Rodríguez (16m. PT) opened the scoring with his left foot, assisted by Jonathan Herrera, Gabriel Gudiño (22m. ST) scored the second for the visit and Sergio Ojeda (25m. ST -against-), discounted for San Lorenzo, who suffered the expulsion of Nicolás Fernández Mercau 18 minutes into the complement.
In the first stage, San Lorenzo came out to put pressure on Patronato and after 4 minutes had the chance to open the scoring with a pass from Ezequiel Cerutti with a pass to Adam Bareiro that Matías Mansilla defined and covered. The “Ciclón” sought to arrive from the sides, from the right with Ezequiel Herrera and Federico Gattoni and from the left with Nicolás Fernández Mercau and Jalil Elías, to assist Cerutti and Bareiro.
Patronato, for its part, relied on Gabriel Gudiño’s overflows from the left, to reach the San Lorenzo area, but at 16 minutes, a counterattack by Jonathan Herrera assisted Axel Rodríguez to define with his left foot, allowed the entrerriano team to open the scoring.
The local team felt the blow of the rival goal and entered a stage of disorientation, from which they gradually came out, without generating clear situations, until 39 minutes when Federico Gattoni defined from outside, a shot that Mantilla required contained.
In the second part, the DT of San Lorenzo, Fernando Beron, decided to bring in Ricardo Centurión to give the local team more attack, in search of a tie. But Gattoni lost a ball after 3 minutes that Sebastián Medina took advantage of, who defined and took out Torrico.
In addition, San Lorenzo suffered the expulsion of Fernández Mercau at 18 minutes for an infraction against Tiago Benega, a move verified by the VAR and by the same means, the second goal of Patronato was consolidated, converted at 22 minutes by Gudiño. The “Ciclón”, discounted at 26 minutes with a goal against Sergio Ojeda, but could not reach equality.
In the popular local, the supporters identified as the “Buteler”, put the banners on the stand upside down, as a sign of discontent for the bad season that the “azulgrana” team had. The climate in the previous and during the game was heavy due to the bad campaign of San Lorenzo, which already took away former coach Pedro Troglio and former manager Mauro Cetto.
From the beginning, the San Lorenzo fans insulted the directors and the players. Each missed pass became a barrage of whistles, each defensive and offensive failure also had an impact on the mood, already predetermined after the elimination of the Copa Argentina the previous week and the winless presentations at the Gasómetro – three draws and three defeats. -.
History repeated itself as it happened days ago after 2 to 2 with Platense: suspended press conference, heads looking at the floor when getting on the bus and a thunderous silence from the protagonists. Just over 100 fans approached the fence guarded by the City Police and did not stop insulting the usual target: Tinelli and Lammens. The two leaders who led San Lorenzo to maximum glory in 2014 when they won the Copa Libertadores are now the main sources of anger among supporters.
Tinelli, with a mandate until December 2023, returned to the country last Tuesday from Mexico and was summoned by Lammens to make a decision to clarify the political landscape, amid pressure for the entire Board of Directors to resign.
In San Lorenzo they wait for a political signal from the licensed president to advance in the hiring of a new technical director and in the formation of the squad that will fight next season for permanence in the First Division.
Despite being the great of Argentine football without international competition, San Lorenzo could not have a leading role at the local level either, since it registered a campaign of just 8 points that left it with fleeting chances to fight for qualification for the final phase of the LPF Cup .
Since the retirement of Tinelli, in May of last year, the club has been in charge of Lammens, current Minister of Tourism and Sports, and the first vice president, Horacio Arreceygor.
