Gymnastics and Sarmiento equalized without goals but with controversy in the Professional League

Gimnasia La Plata and Sarmiento de Junín matched this Saturday no goals in the Forest of the Buenos Aires capital for the date 18 of the Professional League, after a controversial final match due to referee Ariel Penel’s decision to cancel a local goal.

A first time of fight and friction was the common denominator of what both proposed. Few spaces to play. In Gymnastics, only Lescano provided a bit of clarity, but he lacked company. Sarmiento populated half of the field and bet on the strength of his forwards.

The Wolf approached with a shot of Barros Schelotto that controlled Meza and those of Junín had the clearest in a center by Lisandro Lopez that Toledo headed and hit the crossbar.

The locals had a chance at the exit of a corner with a high shot from Bolívar and then there was another opportunity from Toledo from above.

In the second part, Gymnastics pressed, showed a greater offensive vocation and deserved something more. He had two clear opportunities: the first, a header from Sánchez that went just wide and the second with a shot from Ramírez that Meza took to the corner.

The local could not break Sarmiento’s defensive line and tried medium distance, but lacked aim.

Around 42 minutes, Napolitano and Lescano played the short ball in a corner, Torres threw a cross flush that Felipe Sánchez pushed into the goal, Penel validated In the first instance but, after the VAR review, he annulled it due to an advanced position at the start of the play.

With that determination, an equality crystallized that suited the visit better in their struggle to achieve permanence in the First Division. Because sarmiento added his fifth game without losing and he escaped six points from Platense in the table of averages.
