A scissor goal from Santiago Ascacíbar in the fifth minute of added time gave Estudiantes a 2-1 victory over Huracán he needed twice: it was the first game for his new technical director, edward dominguez and next Sunday they will face Gymnastics in a new edition of the La Plata superclassic.
Huracán came out with an alternative team because their coach Diego Dabove decided to reserve the headlines for Wednesday’s retaliation in Lima against Sporting Cristal for a place in the group stage of the Copa Libertadores. And he was about to end up winning: Mauro Boselli opened the scoring after 11 minutes of the first stage and Juan Fernando Garro equalized at 19 in the second half. When Huracán dominated and seemed to be approaching victory, heThe expulsion of Gastón Sauro, nine minutes from the end, stopped the team and threw it back.
When Estudiantes was surfing a wave of nervousness and Huracán was clinging to the tie, already at the discount, Matías Godoy threw a ball into the area, Ascacíbar spliced it as it came and defeated goalkeeper Chaves. There was no room for more. Eduardo Domínguez began his cycle with the victory he needed to rebuild the team and prepare it for the classic on Sunday to come. Huracán regretted that a possible victory has turned into a defeat, the first so far in the championship. But his big bet is to enter the Copa Libertadores. On Wednesday in Peru they will make their last great effort after drawing in the first leg without goals.
