Professional League: Racing tied 1-1 with Talleres and moved away from the top

Racing closed in Córdoba and against Talleres a week in which his claims to fight for the title were complicated. On Monday, San Lorenzo beat him 2-1 in Avellaneda. And at the Mario Kempes stadium, he equalized 1-1 in a match that was within his reach, especially in the first half, and that he could not finish off. Still a long way. But the Academy was seven points (25 to 32) behind Atlético Tucumán that this Sunday will visit Boca in the Bombonera. If the tucumans gave the blow and came to win, they will go to ten units with ten dates ahead. An advantage that will be very difficult for the disconcerting team led by Fernando Gago to discount.

Never playing at a high level, but with clearer ideas and better performance, Racing took the lead 36 minutes into the first half with a headed goal by Carlos Alcaraz after a cross by Facundo Mura. At that time, Talleres floated on the green grass, and did not do anything well: he did not defend solidly, he did not recover the ball in the middle, he could not hold it and he did not reach the top either.

The procedure was used for Racing to affirm its superiority and settle the match on the scoreboard. But in the second half, the opposite happened. Rodrigo Garro and Matías Godoy lifted moving behind the backs of the Racinguista midfielders, Ulises Ortegoza did much more than Pizzini on the right and the process was even. At 4 minutes, Orban committed a penalty against Godoy that Valoyes scored by changing the stick to goalkeeper Arias. And at 7 minutes, a shot by Ortegoza after a center by Buffarini from the right went just over the crossbar.

Racing took a quarter of an hour to react and get back into the game but it was not the same. Just near the end, two shots from Colombian Cardona from outside the area required two good saves from goalkeeper Guido Herrera. But In truth, throughout the second stage, Racing was never able to truly commit Talleres, who shares the last place in the table with Lanús and is 17 points away from the cup classification.

If at any time, it seemed that the Academy was the only one of the greats in a position to fight for the title, the two games of the week dispelled that impression. One consolation remains: With 55 points, it is the team that has scored the most points in the year and is entering the 2023 Copa Libertadores. Perhaps it is that, the only objective that remains to be achieved in the remainder of the year. The championship has gone too far.
