Coach Jorge Sampaoli It is characterized by living the matches very intensely. Shouts, gestures, complaints to the referees and even runs to celebrate goals are part of their repertoire that sometimes ends with a red card. This Thursday in the party that Racing lost 2-1 with Flamengo in it Maracana Stadium for the fifth date of Group A of the Libertadores Cupthe man from Santa Fe once again stole attention due to an unusual reaction with Gabriel Rojas.
A quarter of an hour had just been played in the game in Rio de Janeiro when Rojas went to challenge for the ball with Everton Ribeiro and there he intervened Sampaoli, that something said to the academic soccer player in a less emphatic tone. The ball ended up outside and the side went in favor of the Argentine team. Both players greeted each other and the side of Racing looked at him Sampaoli and he made a gesture with his hand that he “talked a lot.”
It was a new chapter between Racing y Sampaoli that comes from the match played in Avellaneda, where he was not well received by some fans who still do not forgive him for the failure in Russia 2018 and that has not led to Lautaro Martinez has said worldwhen in the previous stage he followed the Bull in his last games at the Academy, he came to mention him, but at the last moment he did not include him like Ricardo Centurion. “It was better to go for players with more experience in these types of events.”, Sampa brandished in the press conference after the 1-1 in the Cilindro.
The issue remained there between them, but it seems that the former technical director of the Argentine team was left with blood in his eye and far from lowering tensions, he was very active. Wesley opened the scoring for Flamengo after a good counter taking advantage of a wasted corner kick from Racing. in that much Sampaoli it was limited to clenched fists and a shout.
in the plugin matias rojas equalized with a left-footed goal to place. The partial tie that Avellaneda’s team got was worth securing first place in the area and was equivalent to a victory.
But with seven minutes to go Victor Hugo He managed to unbalance in favor of the cariocas and after capturing the footballer’s celebration, the cameras went straight to Sampaoli who once again celebrated wildly and repeated his run to the sides, without receiving a greeting from any of his collaborators, something similar to what happened in the goal of red frames ante Nigeria in it World Cup Russia 2018which earned Argentina the qualification to the round of 16.
the victory of Flamengo left him with 8 points and is second to three units of Racing. On the last date the Academy must beat nublense to secure first place in the area. A draw and a victory for Flamengo over aucas I would already demand a tiebreaker due to goal difference in favor, that at the moment the Avellaneda team has the advantage with +3 against +2 of the rojinegro cast.
Far from the pointers in the table of the Professional League despite his victory on the last date against Banfield 2-0, the Copa Libertadores became the priority for those led by Fernando Gago. On the next date of the local tournament, he will visit on Saturday Institute from 9:45 p.m.
