the convulsed Independent surprised and hit the Elephant Cemetery to beat Colón 3-0at the close of the eleventh date of the Professional League.
Damian Battallini, Leandro FernandezIn the first stage, and Leandro Benegasin the plugin, they scored in Santa Fe for the interim directed set this time by Juan José Serrizuela, waiting for a new cycle of Julio César Falcioni to begin at the head of Rojo de Avellaneda, which reached 11 units.
Still touched by the elimination in the Copa Libertadores at the hands of Talleres de Córdoba, the sabalero -now led by Sergio Rondina- alternating more bad than good and adds just two units more than its winner.
The game started with a clear dominance of the local teamfrom his patient, neat game, although without too much depth.
But the one who struck first was Independiente, after “Flea” Rodríguez lost the ball with Pozzo. Thus began a withering backlash with Fernandezwho in turn masterfully leaked a pass between the lines for the entry of Batallini and this, before the departure of goalkeeper Ignacio Chicco, I do not forgive and placed it next to a stick.
The goal fell like a bucket of cold water for the localwho nevertheless insisted on turning his game into attack from the right, where an incisive Eric Ramírez sought to associate himself with both Pierotti and an active Rodríguez, who would retire injured at the end of the match.
But Sabalero hastily finished what he hinted at on offenseAbila fell again and again in an advanced position and Sánchez Miño (a former Independiente) barely had a shot from outside the area that went over the crossbar. It was thus that Fernández’s volley goal -the figure of the court- represented almost a coup de grâce for the people of Santa Fe.
back from the locker room, a center from the right it was (badly) clear head by the defender Goltz and Benegasalso head, billed to the other stick, after the VAR verified that the striker was correctly enabled. It was the first time that the Red scored three goals so far in the tournament.
With his spirits low, Colón de Santa Fe had the discount after a series of rebounds, but Alan Soñora managed to clear almost over the line. Y el Rojo, who came from suffering two defeats in a row, in the end stayed with the long-awaited victory and seeks to raise his head.
Where will the classic with River be played
On the other hand, the Agency for the Prevention of Violence in Sport (Preserve) have to define this Tuesday if the classic between Independiente and River Plate will be played at the Libertadores de América-Ricardo Bochini stadium, or if again Red has to change his location. Likewiseboth the agency and the Ministry of Security They must decide if the duel will be with the public.
In this context, DT Falcioni –who will take charge of the Red in the next few hours and will debut against the Millionaire this Sunday- he has already established his position before the leadership and he wants the match to be played in Avellaneda, with Rojo fans in the stands. The last word has Aprevide.
