Barracas Central beat San Lorenzo 2-1 at the All Boys stadium, in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Floresta, for the sixth date of the Professional Soccer League. In the Estadio Falkland Islands the match was played that had several controversies and that counted on the arbitration of Jorge Baliño.
It was played in the midfield in the first few minutes with both teams vying for control and in the first one Guapo opened the scoring after a good play with touches and that Bruno Sepúlveda defined at 14 minutes with a cross shot.
The meeting had a strange process since San Lorenzo showed more possession and even deserved to have left with at least one draw from Floresta, but also made mistakes in the background that led to one of Barracas’ goals. But it was also harmed by some arbitration decisions and the intervention of the VAR in another key play that was equality.
After 20 minutes, the first controversy of the match came when Nicolás Ferreyra grabbed Nicolás Ferreyra, who fell inside the area. The judge did not receive the call from the VAR.
San Lorenzo looked for the tie and his left wing was the key. At 37 minutes Nahuel Barrios put together a good play in which he transferred and held Iván Leguizamón who sent the center and Adam Bareiro anticipated to make it 1-1.
Although the joy of the Ciclón did not last long since at 39 minutes Rubén Darío Insua’s team was slow to leave, they neglected Neri Bandiera who received in the area and put Barracas in the lead again.
At the start of the complement Barracas reached the third, product of another failed start from the bottom of San Lorenzo and Bandiera widened the differences, but after the VAR analysis the goal was annulled for offside. In the replays part of the striker’s shoulder was seen in an irregular position and the referee’s decision was correct.
However, San Lorenzo also had two goals invalidated due to advanced positions. The first was from Leguizamón, applied by the line judge, and the other from Jeremías James, who required the VAR analysis, a move that was actually legal since the Barça defender started from behind.
The Barça cast, nurtured by many youth players, did a worthy job beyond their mistakes and found a rival who knew how to take advantage of their chances and hit at the right moments.
Insua’s team lost the tournament undefeated. On the next date he will receive Boca Juniors on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. For their part, Barracas achieved their first victory in the championship and will also play on the same day, when they visit Talleres in Córdoba (8:30 pm).
