Colón de Sante Fe and Central Córdoba tied 2-2 and shared points. Lucas Besozzi and Leandro Maciel scored for the Ferroviario, while Ramón Ábila and Fabio Pereyra, against, helped Sabalero to rescue a point. But the one who gave the note was again the ablast Fernando Espinoza.
In the build-up to the match, both teams needed the three points like water is needed in the desert. The Railwayman, who has Leonardo Madelon on the bench of substitutes, highly identified with Union, came out better planted and with greater clarity. In fact, five minutes into the game, he took the lead thanks to Lucas Besozzi.
The Sabalero, after the blow, could not stand. In attack, the production was of little flight and almost did not prowl the arc defended by Marcos Ledesma. In defense, the team was completely split and left spaces in each setback.
Each reply after an attack by the Santa Fe team was a dagger that was stuck in the defensive block. The situation was unsustainable and, after several failed chances, a new counter commanded by Lucas Gamba culminated with Leandro Maciel finishing from outside the area and stretching the result.
With the advantage, Central Córdoba mutated its tactical drawing. In order to protect himself, he went from playing 4-2-3-1 to 5-4-1. The match entered a plateau that went to halftime with the Santiago team as the fair winner and with Sabalero with many things to modify.
Gorosito moved the bench and his team jumped onto the court with another predisposition. With a more offensive attitude and trying to become strong in the middle of the court. The risks remained the same: a counterattack where Besozzi, Farioli and Gamba can exploit all their speed.
But the move went well for Pipo. Ramón Ábila, Sabalero's scorer in the championship grabbed a ball from outside the area and put it in an unreachable place for Ledesma.
And just three minutes later, a front center from a free kick from midfield had the complicity of Ledesma, who went far and badly, and Fabio Pereyra, who wanted to clear the ball and ended up becoming a goal against.
Colón, who seemed to be grogui, was reborn from his ashes and subdued Central Córdoba, who came out as another team in the second half. But complications appeared again for the Santa Fe team. Espinoza directly fired Stefano Moreyra, in a decision at least questionable.
Espinoza had a decidedly bad performance. He sent off Moreyra in a bad way and in the first half he had a reprehensible action when he pushed Gustavo Canto after admonishing him, to show another yellow to Fabio Pereyra. True to his style, the referee wanted to be more protagonist than the protagonists themselves.
The match was evenly matched and the chances were shared. Columbus with drive and heart, while Central Cordoba tried to take advantage of their man more. The scoreboard did not move anymore and points were distributed. It was a time for each and both must feel that they could have been fair winners.
