Just one shot in the entire first half
The game in general of the celestial team was unfortunate, because there was no connection between all the areas of the field, without being able to pass more than three or four passes in a row, having especially bad starts.
Because of this, the Uruguayan Jonathan Rodriguez and Santiago Gimenez could generate little damage, as well as the Ecuadorian Brayan Angulo and the Argentine Lucas passerini when they entered the complement, ending the first period with just one shot at the goal guarded by the Argentine Marcelo barovero.
With that statistic, the technician had to make changes to his schematic for the add-on.
Do not remove Yoshimar Yotún from the field
The Peruvian started the game next to Rafael Baca, but he quickly lost patience by committing continuous fouls and constantly complaining to the referee, which cost him a warning before the end of the first half.
For the complement, he remained in the same margin and could even have been expelled, because there was an action that merited another preventive card, but the whistler let him pass.
The Machine was in danger of remaining with ten on the field being dominated.
They ended up asking for the end
When there were still more than 20 minutes to finish the match, the blue players seemed to be asking for the end of the duel, since they felt totally overwhelmed by the attacks from Potosí.
In fact, El Cabezón sent to the field Julio César Domínguez, who completed 500 games in the MX League, to give solidity to the defense, but even so the Tuneros already owned the ball and made them look bad.
In the end, the strategy came out, although thanks to the two interventions of the Jury.
The South American helmsman is doing a good job with the rotations in his starting eleven, perhaps the highlight is letting Jurado and Andres Gudiño dispute ownership in the absence of Jesus Crown.
On this occasion the arisen from Red Sharks of Veracruz He was in charge of defending the goal, being essential to win a point by having two incredible saves on the Argentine German Berterame.
At minute 66 he saved a header, then he had a good start with his arms to take the ball away from the rival and finally, at 90 + 10 ‘he came out in great shape to say no to the South American again.
Similarly, he rotated through the rest of the positions as defender and midfield, a good way to keep them all on track.
The debut of Rómulo Otero
Finally the only reinforcement of Blue Cross he could see action, although it was only about 20 minutes, thanks to the fact that the game had eleven minutes to add.
The Venezuelan entered with great enthusiasm, so much so that he tried his long-distance shot twice, which were not a problem for El Trapito.
In any case, it is good that Reynoso gave him minutes to join the team.
