San Lorenzo lost this Saturday 1-0 against Danubio in Montevideo, exactly one week after its first official match of the year, and completed its preseason tour in Uruguay with a
It is that not only did they close their time in the neighboring country with a record of two defeats and one draw, but they also showed a
marked offensive anemia
by not scoring goals in any of those matches.
The team led by Ruben Darío Insua
deserved something more than an adverse result
at the Centenario stadium, where this friendly match valid for the Río de la Plata Series was played.
In fact, he demanded on several occasions Mauro Goicoechea, a rival goalkeeper whom he turned into a figure, and showed good intentions with the ball at his feet.
However, he found
a rival who fully capitalized on the first
clear arrival of risk.
It was 41 minutes into the first half, when Maximiliano Añasco took a rebound from Augusto Batalla, after an attempt by Diego Vera, and established the 1-0 lead for the team led by Esteban Conde, former goalkeeper for Atlético Rafaela and Banfield.
In the second part,
San Lorenzo had the clearest opportunities
First he was within shot of the tie with a shot from Malcom Braida that crashed into the crossbar and then with a maneuver that ended in a goal from the admitted Iván Leguizamón, but which was invalidated by the referee for an alleged offense in attack by Adam Bareiro.
In this way, Danubio was left with the Cup called "Luis Malvarez", in homage to the well-remembered former striker who wore the shirts of both teams in the '80s, and who had an outstanding time at the Barça institution, as a member of the remembered "Cambodians".
San Lorenzo, in part, added this adverse result to the goalless draw against Independiente del Valle, which finally beat them on penalties, and to the defeats by the slightest difference against Peñarol and tonight against the “fringed” club.
Three cases to follow closely with a view to the debut
The Boedo team will have
a week to prepare their debut in the
Professional Soccer League tournament, which will take place on Saturday 28, starting at 5:00 p.m., against Arsenal de Sarandí, at the Nuevo Gasómetro.
During that time, Insua will surely put a special focus on
Augusto Batalla, Gastón Hernández and Iván Leguizamón.
In the case of the goalkeeper, the match ended with a muscle injury in his right leg (apparently in the adductor) suffered moments after Hernández's departure, due to a blow to the knee.
Leguizamón, meanwhile, collided his head with Rafael Haller's and left the field on a stretcher, the product of a cut on his scalp.
