Colon, historic: I beat Racing and won the title for the first time in the top flight

Colón de Santa Fe beat Racing 3-0 at the San Juan del Bicentenario stadium and was crowned champion of the Professional League Cup. With goals from Rodrigo Aliendro, Cristian Bernardi and Alexis Castro, Sabalero won their first title in their history.

The match was played at the San Juan del Bicentenario stadium and was refereed by Nestor Pitana. It was an afternoon-night of great goals. Rodrigo Aliendro, Christian Bernardi and Alexis Castro paved the way for Eduardo Domínguez’s team.

The Avellaneda team led by Juan Antonio Pizzi could do nothing against an opponent who, in the second half, made the big difference: all the goals came at that moment. Pulga Rodríguez, Sabalero’s most important player, had to leave in the second half due to a muscular discomfort. It is a great achievement for an extraordinary player.

Colón had just left Talleres de Córdoba on the road in a series of penalties in the quarterfinals and Independiente after beating him 2-0 in the semifinals, and this Friday he made history by winning the first title.

Racing had reached the decisive match after defeating Vélez Sarsfield in the quarterfinals and Boca Juniors in the semifinals, in separate penalties. It was not enough for anything else.

This was the second final that those led by Juan Antonio Pizzi will play so far this year after having lost the Argentine Super Cup in the hands of River, after a categorical 5-0 defeat in Santiago del Estero. They lost again, and by a landslide.

Colón will be measured in December against Boca, champion of the Diego Armando Maradona Cup.
