Tigre took the lead in Zone B tonight by beating Rosario Central 2-0 in Victoria, at the end of the eighth round of the Professional League Cup. The fully justified success in the second period allowed them with 15 points to reach Estudiantes de La Plata and Boca Juniors at the top of the positions, even if those led by Diego Martínez assume a better goal difference. Central instead added his third consecutive defeat, which embittered the debut of DT Leandro Somoza, replacing the outgoing Cristian González.

The first phase had a little discreet development, due to the fact that both teams proposed intense actions in the medium sector, but lacked the ideas and precision to generate deep charges. So much so that the two goalkeepers did not experience pressing situations, because Tigre, on the one hand, with his usual good handling of the ball and attacks with overflows from the flanks, was unable to harm the host defense. On the other, Central, with Somoza in the tactical lead, who until last August served as assistant pitch to Miguel Angel Russo in Boca Juniors, offered more zeal in branding and pressure in all areas, plus the attempt at quick transitions and headed for the offensive, which did not even prosper.


Things changed in the second inning, when the hosts quickly took the lead thanks to a penalty converted by Magnín (3 minutes), after an unnecessary handball by Paraguayan defender Javier Báez. In this way the match became more lively as Victoria’s men continued with their vertical game and without speculation, in an attempt to increase the difference. At the same time, the central players reacted with greater enthusiasm to the search for parity, with which both the goalkeeper Gonzalo Marinelli had successful interventions, to avoid the fall of the local goal, and the guest Gaspar Servio.

Around 31 ‘, Mateo Retegui was about to extend the lead when his shot crashed into the left post of Rosario’s goal. Warning of what happened 7 minutes later with a splendid collective combination of Tigre, in which the right-back Blondel, in a splendid projection, defined himself with a cross-shot to overcome the resistance of Servius. From then until the end, the dominance of the winner was evident and he was about to increase the score for a well-deserved victory, which sparked the delusion of his bias, which filled the stadium. For the ninth round, Tigre will visit the Independiente; while Rosario Central will receive Colón, from Santa Fe.
