Vélez and Unión bored in the reunion of Gallego Méndez with Tatengue

Vélez and Unión bored in the reunion of Gallego Méndez with Tatengue

There was a lot of previous and little during this Monday in the very weak goalless draw between Vélez and Union in Liniersparty oversold -discursively- by the reunion between Sebastián Méndez with his former team after the abrupt departure of Gallego de Santa Fe.

Before the start, Méndez received a hug from “Kily” González -he replaced him in Unión- but none of the Tatengues players came over to greet him. It is worth remembering that the Gallego resigned surprisingly from the Santa Fe position after beating Independiente 3-0 to take over in Vélez, headless after the departure of Tigre Gareca, which aroused much criticism from the Tatengues leaders for the former defender.

And on the pitch, both played as their positions dictate: tied for 23rd place with 27 points, just five behind Huracán, the penultimate, for now descending. between the two casts they barely added a shot on goal -courtesy of Tatengue, with a header from the kid Jerónimo Dómina that goalkeeper Leo Burián rejected in a great way- with which the thing was hard to witness in the cold Buenos Aires afternoon.

Vélez and Unión have become table specialists in their last matches: Since the arrival of Méndez, Fortín is undefeated but after two initial victories it comes from four draws in a row. For its part, Unión also has four straight draws with Kily González, after the 0-1 defeat against Atlético Tucumán in its debut.

The least encouraging data for Tatengue is that since the departure of Gallego and the arrival of Kily, he has not scored goals in his five appearances. In the absence of ills, Unión did not have attacker Imanol Machuca among its eleven, in conflict with the leadership over his possible sale to Brazilian football.

In the absence of dangerous situations, the leading role was taken by the referee for a controversial decision: At 17 minutes, Walter Bou made a mistake in the back pass and led to Kevin Zenón’s quick attack, who yielded to Domina and when the youngster was about to define one-on-one, he received a slight push from Juan Méndez. Fernando Rapallini did not even go to VAR and Vélez was saved from the penalty and expulsion.

On the next and last date, Vélez will visit Huracán and Unión will receive Defense and Justice.
