Marking the games we have watched in person and overall, we take a stab into the results of the Primera eliminatoria Grupo II Zona Metropolitana in the Copa Argentina.
Atlanta (2) – Villa San Carlos (1)
It was the opportunity for the Villa Crespo team to stretch legs in a harsh challenge between the La Plata team and Los Bohemios: it started out with a goal by Villa San Carlos’s striker Fernando Pasquale on the tenth minute by a missed ball by the local goalkeeper Rodrigo Barucco, that turned into a rebound by the VSC man inside the box. After that it was an upward road for Sialle’s team.
But on the second half the chip turned with Sialle taking out a midfielder (Galeano) and bringing in a striker (Pedrozo) turning a 4-4-2 into a 4-3-3, and on the sixth minute a run into the box by Pedrozo got stopped by a very awkward kick inside the box by Figueredo, who got yellow carded, and a penalty kick was ordered by the referee, Mastrángelo. The penalty kick was scored by Julio Serrano.
After that, eleven minutes afterwards, Federico Maraschi scored a header obtained through a cross by Matías Quiroga, whom along with Leandro Benitez on the back, managed to create a more than interesting society on the left side of the field. After that, and up until the end, it was all time for Villa San Carlos to regroup and attack, but on the 26th minute, Ezequiel Aguimcer, the Villa San Carlos defender, got thrown out after (alleged) complaints and insults to the referee. The last twenty minutes were back and fro for both times, tired, and both trying to secure their own ends.
Overall feeling: We’ll have to see if the lack of chances created overall by Atlanta were (or not were) a mere result of a lack of game form so soon after the preseason. And a very poor game from Villa San Carlos, now out of the Copa Argentina, to head back into the Primera B Metropolitana.
This is the first ever win on the pitch for Atlanta in the newly reformed Copa Argentina, after only having won once in its history: in 2012, to rivals All Boys, but through a penalty shootout. Atlanta will know its next rival for the next round on tuesday.
