And for the game of the week:
Dep. Morón vs Almirante Brown (21:00 AR Time, televised through TyC Sports – http://www.sintelevisor.com/tv/tycsports.html, at Morón )
The west part of the Conurbano del Gran Buenos Aires goes into silence at the time of the Oeste derby, it is no surprise. Between Moron’s continuance at the Primera B Metropolitana after a serious relegation threat that was avoided by hiring Salvador Pasini at the last few weeks of Primera B on the 2014 season, now managed by Almirante Brown’s longest serving manager at the time (Blas Giunta) and with a new stadium and new hopes, the team with the new Francisco Urbano will be awaiting for arch-rivals Almirante Brown team (hailing from Isidro Casanova, a neighbouring borough). So and so, El Gallito (The Rooster- after C.D. Morón’s logo), and the Fragata (The Frigate- derived from Almirante Brown’s name, Guillermo Brown, an irish navy captain who fought for the argentine independency in the end of the eighteenth century and early into the nineteenth century).
Although Almirante and Moron have been neighbours since the beginning, their long standing rivalry dates back to 1959, in a match where a Morón player gets red-carded after indicating to a referee that the second Almirante goal was in an off-side position. Needless to say, Molteni, the Moron player, was suspended for 30 games and the game was deemed finished at a two-nil score for Almirante Brown.
As you may see now, there has been no love lost between the two big clubs in the west of the Conurbano.
