The red version of the aforementioned goal formula was overflow and center of the full-back Santiago Montiel for the header of the Uruguayan midfielder Javier Cabreraand thus put Argentinos Juniors in front after 13 minutes of the game.

The Bug did not lack scares in the Neo Química Arena, like the unusual action that occurred at minute 23 when Montiel played a little game to pick up the ball and pass it to his goalkeeper. Although a smiling Lanzillota did not take it with his hands, the referee awarded an indirect free kick and admonished the full-back, who did not understand anything. According to the regulation, this action is considered as a way to “outwit” it and is sanctioned.

“A free kick will be awarded if a player starts an action that deliberately tries to circumvent the Law to get the ball to the goalkeeper (including from a free kick or goal kick) with head, chest, knee, etc, regardless of whether the goalkeeper touches the ball with his hand or arm. The goalkeeper will be penalized if he is responsible for deliberately initiating the action,” says the regulation of the International Football Association Boardwhich also penalizes the action with a yellow card.
