Professional League: Estudiantes beat Godoy Cruz and gave air to the Balbo cycle

Just when Abel Balbo’s cycle began to raise doubts among fans, Estudiantes got their first victory in the championship this Saturday by beating Godoy Cruz 1-0 in Mendoza, with a header from Luciano Lollo. The defender thus completed a very outstanding task, to become the figure of the field.

The duel was even and played at a slow pace, with two teams worried about not making mistakes and with a very thin grass that made it difficult to move the ball. In this context, Estudiantes took advantage of a Piatti corner for Lollo to score with a header. The goal served for the La Plata team to calm down and begin to handle the ball more judiciously. This is how they justified the advantage, although they never fully took over the development, not even when the men from Mendoza were left with one less man due to the expulsion of Juan Andrada. But he was enough to win and give air to his coach.
