The fans of one and the other have arguments to believe that they deserved the victory.
It was a 2-2 tie between Platense and Newell's.
And it's okay, to neutral eyes.
Of course, a prize for the two who did not save anything at the premiere of the Professional League.
There were coaching debuts, just former teammates from the 2010 World Cup Team,
The Gringo showed the lint in the first play.
They took Hoyos back from the middle, a long ball from the goalkeeper and an effortful rejection from Suso.
The first goal came from a similar play.
Great ball from Hoyos, the left side of the local defense fell asleep, Arce was left halfway and Francisco González reached it for Sordo who walked into the goal.
As before the goal, everything was dedication and little play.
Platense received returns with a nap from Rosario's left side and Morgantini hit a right hand that passed between Hoyos's legs.
Palermo and Heinze, two old football acquaintances.
The second part was even more exciting and lasted 8 dramatic minutes.
At the same time, Balzi and Rossi were injured when they were 12. The next minute Arce saved a penalty from Sordo and at 17 the incredible play came: another hit by a ball, Hoyos misjudged and when it got in, he stopped it on the line, the He returned to the field, a teammate wanted to reject and served it to Baldasarra to make it 2-1.
It wasn't all, that crazy game cycle ended at 20 when Francisco González found the equalizer in the Platense area after a rebound from Arce.
Did they settle?
The two went for more, but they had a problem: lack of play.
A lot of strong leg, a lot of brand duplication and a lot of center as an offensive weapon for few attackers.
The changes that the coaches attempted also failed to unbalance what was even in delivery and intentions.
And slowly the party made its way to the cast.
Platense will regret the two bloopers and for that reason he will believe that he could have won.
Newell's will regret the missed penalty that would have given him the advantage.
It was a draw and it is not bad that there was no punishment.
