Professional League: Independiente missed the victory against Argentinos

Independiente missed a clear chance of victory by drawing 2-2 with Argentinos Juniors, in a game that led 2-0 until the last quarter of an hour of play. It is true that the result was exaggerated by what both teams had shown on the field, but the wasted advantage left Ricardo Zielinski’s team little pleased.

Although Argentinos spent the game and had the best chances to take the lead during the first half, including a double opportunity with a shot from Ávalos that hit the crossbar and Cabral’s rebound that Rey blocked on the line, It was Independiente who took the lead when Sergio Ortiz took advantage of a mistake in the rival’s start, stole the ball and beat Martin Arias with a strong shot.

It seemed that the Red could take a very important victory when Cauteruccio made it 2-0 after a penalty from Di Cesare to Brian Martínez. But an error by Elizalde, who senselessly grabbed Verón in a corner, made it possible for Argentinos to get back into the game with the discount of Gabriel Ávalos.

With the changes promoted by Milito and the motivation for the discount, Argentinos went ahead in search of an equalizer and achieved it in another corner, when Di Cesare deflected Cabrera’s cross and the admitted Leonardo Heredia headed the goal to score equality.

In the final minutes, Cauteruccio had the victory, but failed in an inexplicable way after a precise assist from Barcia. So Independiente left with a bitter taste in a game that could have won.
