Estudiantes de La Plata recovered from the defeat suffered in the classic against Gimnasia (1-2) during the previous day and clearly defeated Newell’s Old Boys de Rosario 3-0, in the continuity of the ninth date of the League tournament Professional (LPF).
In the Uno stadium, the local team added its second consecutive victory at home with the victories scored by Santiago Ascacíbar, Mauro Boselli and Leonardo Godoy.
The ‘Pincha’ will travel to Bolivia on Tuesday for his debut in the Copa Sudamericana against Oriente Petrolero.
For its part, the Rosario team added a resounding setback, after having defeated San Lorenzo 1-0 during the previous date.
There were good works in Estudiantes by Zaid Romero, Benjamín Rollheiser and the newcomer Gastón Benedetti.
The first half began with Estudiantes more concerned with maintaining order than playing and Newell’s looking to play neatly, but without reaching Andújar’s goal.
At 9m. Rollheiser pressed, the rebound went to Boselli, who shot high from a good position.
At 25m, meanwhile, Rollheiser enabled Godoy, who reached the bottom and the center found Ascacibar’s head to open the scoring.
Estudiantes grew with the projections of Godoy and Benedetti, and at 31m. the referee Nicolás Ramírez sanctioned a handball by Brian Aguirre with the pertinent penalty. Boselli executed it poorly, at mid-height, the goalkeeper Hoyos covered it, but the scorer appeared on the rebound to put the distance of two on the board.
At the end of the stage, midfielder Sosa -in a well-executed free kick- put the ball to Boselli’s head, but the shot went over the crossbar.
At the start of the plugin, Estudiantes hit the coup de grace. Domínguez’s team pressed in the middle of the field, Boselli enabled Godoy, who from outside the area sent an unassailable shot to Hoyos.
Newell’s never showed a reaction and Estudiantes played with the wide advantage. Gabriel Heinze’s team only added danger in a shot from Ecuadorian Reasco, which went wide.
