Godoy Cruz does not stop: he beat Newell’s and is now one of the best teams in Argentine soccer

The Tomba knocks you down. Who will stop him, if he sweeps them all away. In some word games, the key to success Godoy Cruz. A team that, at the beginning of the season, was biting its nails just thinking about that ugly fight that today has Huracán, Vélez and other heavyweights leaving everything to avoid going down. Several months in the future, the tombino walk is unbelievable. With Daniel Oldrá at the head, interim turned leader, The Mendoza team won 1-0 against Newell’s in a hot Marcelo Bielsawas the runner-up in zone B of the League Cup – on the same line as Belgrano – and placed on the podium of the accumulated table, below River and Talleres and above almost all argentine soccer.

In the last matches (they are already 11 undefeated, with five wins and six draws), GC did not stop growing. And he didn’t achieve it because he was overwhelming, although he treats the ball with love, but to understand the games. This Thursday, when Newell’s stood up to him with many people upstairs and made it difficult for him to get out, tried to be direct. Hernán López MuñozHe even tried to put it in from the middle of the court looking to surprise (it was close). When the first half was leaving, in a breakaway in which everyone knew what they had to do, The goal was scored that marked the way.

Nicolás Fernández dribbled and released it in time, Thomas Galdames crossed low from first and Daniel Barrea, with the same formula, played it with a stick so that the night in the Colossus was painted blue and white. Or in red, due to the fury of the local fans who did not approve of the performance of Gabriel Heinze’s team (there were songs and whistles). They will have been more red after Tomás Conechny dribbled past goalkeeper Hoyos and sealed the final 2-0.

With these three points, four dates before everything ends -not counting the LPF Cup playoffs-, Godoy Cruz achieved what few others: add regularly. It is marked by their three wins in a row and the ticket to the Libertadores world that is already looming: Tomba all Barrea.
