Atlético Tucumán clearly beats Racing and exacerbates its crisis

Atlético Tucumán vs Racing

On an unusual day, the curtain on Date 4 of the Professional League Cup rises in the north of the country. In the Monumental José Fierro there is a duel of opposites, since the leader Atlético Tucumán clearly surpasses the bottom Racing by 2 to 0. Lucas Melano 35 minutes into the first half and Leonardo Heredia, 24 minutes into the game, scored for the Dean. Televises TNT Sports and directs Diego Abal.

The Academy, which has four defeats in the same number of presentations, suffered the Darío Cvitanich is injured at 24 minutes of the first half; Santiago Godoy came in his place. Also, Christian Lucchetti saved Fabricio Domínguez a penalty when the match was tied. Diego Abal sanctioned maximum penalty in a controversial play at the goal of the area.

Penalty for Racing, Lucchetti saves

After the early elimination of the Copa Libertadores and the Copa Sudamericana (against Independiente), the Dean puts all his energy into this competition, which he feels comfortable Zone 1 leader with ideal score: three games and three wins.

Those commanded by Ricardo Zielinski are aware that a new victory will guarantee them a ticket to the Championship Phase, an instance that faces the first two of each group and grants the possibility of obtaining a ticket to Libertadores 2021 or South American 2022. Arsenal and Union, its escorts with 4 units, will be measured tomorrow, from 17.10, in Sarandí.

This commitment does not come at the best moment to the Academy, since every time it sounds louder than Diego Milito, idol and manager of the institution, has in mind to step aside due to some differences with some leaders of the nucleus that surrounds Víctor Blanco.

To this must be added that the Avellaneda team fell in its three presentations, so it is practically condemned to contest the Competition Phase, a contest that brings together the two worst of each group (grants a ticket to the South American Cup 2022). Against this background, Sebastián Beccacece anticipated that “we are going to give place to young people in this competition and save everything for the Libertadores, I think we are going to get there very well ”.

Racing presents an alternative team since it bets all its chips to cross the Libertadores round of 16 against Flamengo, the current champion. The first leg will be on Tuesday, November 24, at El Cilindro.
