A goal almost from the side, another from a corner, an expulsion after 55 minutes, many minutes of VAR checking and the celebration of Argentinos in penalties after going back in history with one less player. there was everything this Wednesday night at the Estudiantes court but, above all, there were infractions. What a foul festival the Pincha and the Bicho toasted in a very hot game: 19 per side, for a total of 38.

The match was so tight that, after more than 100 minutes of regular time, Faced with the impossibility of continuing kicking, the discussion was verbalized during the draw to see who would kick first. Referee Echenique considered that Vera took the winning color of the coin and Argentinos had to kick first, but Andújar accused him of not letting him choose his favorite color and they argued long and hard between one and the judge.

The complaints of the emblematic goalkeeper of Estudiantes were justified. The team that kicks first has more chances to win, says the statistics. And Argentinos corroborated it. After three hits and a shot to the clouds on each side, Vera scored his and Jorge Morel, who had entered for the batch, ran into a nice volley from Lanzillota to unleash the celebration of Argentinos.

Deserved classification to the semifinals of those led by Gabriel Milito who, still outnumbered -Galarza received the second yellow card for a non-existent foul- and down on the scoreboard, took control of the game and achieved the tie, precisely through Vera, who had a dream night. The initial puncture advantage occurred in the first half, with a second play after a throw-in that found the visiting back badly stopped and capitalized Boselli. Then, theirs did very little to take advantage of it and, thus, the fourth classified eliminated the first.
