Godoy Cruz de Mendoza beat Gimnasia de La Plata 2-0 at home, in the continuity of the 17th. Professional League date. Forward Tadeo Allende, 31 minutes into the first half, and Tomás Conechny, 48 minutes into the match, gave the victory to Daniel Oldrá’s team, who remains undefeated in his interim cycle (six games).
Godoy Cruz, who has eight dates without defeats, accumulated 26 points and was in the Copa Sudamericana zone, while Gimnasia -cutting the streak of two consecutive victories- remains with 21 points, in the middle of the table.
In a first half with little playing volume, few arrivals and a lack of creativity on the part of both teams, the best was Hernán López Muñoz.
The former Central Córdoba footballer from Santiago del Estero tried on different occasions with his good punch from medium distance, although he met Tomás Durso, who has been on the rise since his debut in the La Plata goal, and also looked for Salomón Rodríguez on several occasions .
The local had the prize for looking for it, beyond the fact that possession was passive at times, and when pressing at the start they stole quickly and Allende shook with a bomb from outside to make it 1-0 when little happened.
Gimnasia moved the bench with the entries of Erik Ramírez to speed up the attack, and Franco Torres, although he did not succeed in the first minutes of the complement and as a counterpart he suffered every movement by López Muñoz.
The development did not change too much, since Gimnasia never unraveled the last Mendoza line, and the local did not show the speed of other games in their associated game.
Godoy Cruz clung to the lead in the last quarter of an hour, at times with a line of six defenders -the best was Federico Rasmussen-, and held on for 1-0 to add a key victory in their international cup aspirations.
At the closing, Diego Rodríguez saved a foot by hand against Mamut, and then a header from Conechny consolidated the victory.
