The standings again wink at the Independiente of Julio Falcioni, who with a short squad and many youths for the replacement returned to the victory against Huracán in the Ducó and closely follows those at the top.

However, indoors they know in the red dressing room that to fight until the end there are issues to be resolved as soon as possible.

And one of the main concerns is

the bad second half

suffered by Avellaneda's team.

Independiente's position changed in this season.



abandoned the scheme with five defenders that he used in the first semester and worked in the preseason with the 4-2-3-1 that he has been implementing accompanied by an intention to go out to pressure and dominate from the beginning of the games.


more protagonist


is being seen in this Professional League championship.

And it is not bad for him.

But that idea of ​​going to the front with determination that is seen in the early stages, does not have continuity after halftime.

At the Tomás Adolfo Ducó it happened.

Independiente dominated the first 45 minutes, generated situations, made Marcos Díaz figure in the rival goal and got 1-0.

However, in the complement he did not show that intensity immediately after the break and his lines were seen much closer to Sebastián Sosa.

The ball was left to Huracán, who did not know how to violate the closed defense of



It went well this time, because his rival lacked offensive weight and ideas to find the best way to the tying goal.

But Independiente did not kick the goal in the entire second half and suffered unnecessarily until the end since he could have kept the plan of the first half.

Something similar was seen in the Monumental, but there the luck was not the same.

After a good start, River took over the ball in the final stage and managed to tie it. Why modify something that has been working in a meeting? Why change when things are turning out for the better? Is it an order from the coach or an unconscious question of the players to defend the difference?

"In the second half we could not handle the ball. We went back too far and we were well closed, but without control of the game. We never divided possession of the ball, we had to run a lot and that hurt us. We did not give him the ball Huracán; Huracán he began to handle the ball with better criteria. We could not play at any time and that is the adversary's virtue



said Falcioni, ruling out that it was something planned and pointing to the flaw of not being able to resolve the adversary's control.

Domingo Blanco, the best of


on Sunday, also referred to this evil that has worried all Independiente.

For its part, the midfielder mentioned exhaustion as an influencing factor:

"We had been talking about the fact that in the second half we stayed a bit. There were several minutes that they (due to Hurricane) dominated, but as perhaps we already had the advantage and we were tired we got a little behind, although in general terms it was a great game ".

For one reason or another, in Avellaneda they know that the second parts have not been good.

And that this is something to correct in order to aspire to continue in the lot of those who rule at the top.
