Godoy Cruz he arrived in the South on a three-game winless streak. Banfield It was more in the 90 minutes and, despite the fact that Tomba was ahead on the scoreboard before halftime, they were able to equalize and deserved to win. Finally, the Expreso Bodeguero will return to Mendoza with a point in its pocket.
Badaloni’s goal for Godoy Cruz’s 1-0 against Banfield
A Godoy Cruz It was difficult for him to stand up in the first half. However, he left a better image than his rival at the end of that stage: they annulled a very fine goal by Néstor Breitenbruch at the request of the VAR, but Tomás Badaloni immediately put the 1-0 in favor of Orsi and Gómez.
Despite the advantage obtained, Tomba began the second half asleep and Banfield He improved his good version of the first 45 minutes. This was capitalized on Andrés Chávez’s draw, after a penalty committed by Canale.
Thus, the result of the match played last Tuesday was repeated when they met for the quarterfinals of the Argentine Cup, in which the Buenos Aires team advanced by winning the definition by kicks from the penalty spot.
At the same time, both teams extended their streak without winning, including that match: Banfield has four (2 draws and a couple of losses) and Godoy Cruz six (3 draws and as many losses).
Regarding the development of the game, Banfield positioned himself better at the beginning with high pressure and overflows from the outside, which was his premise despite quickly losing captain Alejandro Cabrera, a key player in the midfield.
The Cordovan had to leave due to a condition in his right ankle, so he was replaced by the young attacking midfielder Ignacio Rodríguez (11m), who offered more energy to the local attack.
El Drill, which premiered the second alternative black jersey with green and white sticks to the left of the front, tried to disturb the Mendoza team with associations on the sides.
However, the clearest situation was generated with a stopped ball play when Agustín Urzi executed a corner whose center was headed by Alejandro Maciel, demanding the intervention of Diego Rodríguez to control it along the right side of his goal (14m).
In a similar way, Godoy Cruz, who until now had not been deep, produced his first arrival through the center of Martín Ojeda from a corner kick that Badaloni headed, crashing the ball into the crossbar of the local goal (17m).
The subsequent was balanced with discreet actions until the ‘Tomba’ took advantage of a local defensive misintelligence to create a good offensive association that culminated in Badaloni, who, arriving free from the right, marked the opening with a violent shot against the desperate Facundo Cambeses (44m).
At the beginning of the supplement, Banfield undertook a constant and deep offensive in search of equality, which he soon achieved.
It was as a result of an infraction that José Canale committed against Mauricio Cuero inside the area, with the corresponding penalty that Chávez converted (13m).
From then on, the development became intense and emotional, with dangerous approaches on both sides, although those of the ‘Drill’ were more sharp, which finally could not break parity.
On the next day, the 23rd, Banfield will visit Vélez Sarsfield, on Tuesday at 9:30 p.m., and Godoy Cruz will receive San Lorenzo, on the same day but from 4:30 p.m.
