Sarmiento surprised and beat Newell’s in Rosario

In the run-up, a party was organized at the Coloso Marcelo Bielsa to celebrate Newell’s 120th anniversary last Friday. However, The party ended up being Sarmiento’s, who won 1-0 as a visitor.cut a streak of nine games without winning and added to escape that tremendous fight to avoid relegation in the annual table.

In a game in which little had happened in terms of situations, Juan Cruz Kaprof entered and after a minute he ended up scoring 1-0 in the middle of the second half with a good shot from the outside after combining with a wall with Alan Marinelli. A great goal that was worth three points. Because the match was ironed out and very permanently cut short with fouls on both sides.

All while from the stands of the Colossus the impatience and the demand for another weak game from Gabriel Heinze’s team descended.. They had just lost at home with Godoy Cruz and tied in Vicente López against Platense and even if they had won this Sunday they would have gotten into the top four of Zone B of the League Cup and would have been one point away from the classification the 2024 South American Cup.

Great goal from Kaprof for Sarmiento’s first

Only a few initial minutes of searching and a disallowed goal (to Cristian Ferreira due to a previous offside by Guillermo May) were very little for a Newell’s team that became cloudy as the minutes passed and repeated itself searching all the time for Francisco González through the bands. For the red-and-black team, they will have to visit Boca and receive Defensa looking to lift and finish the League Cup as high as possible.

Sarmiento and a huge breath

While after Sarmiento found a reaction at the right time. With the help of Facundo Sava as coach (it was his second game after the draw against San Lorenzo), they now have a three-point advantage over Colón, who was relegated in the annual table at least until he visits Banfield this Monday. And in the last two dates they will host Godoy Cruz and then they will finish the championship against Platense as a visitor looking to save himself. Yes, for Green it was a Colossus triumph…

How long has it been since Sarmiento won?

The last time had been on August 27 when they beat Boca 1-0 in Junín with a goal from Gabriel Díaz. Since then Nine games passed, of which they had tied six times. (against Defensa, Lanús, Belgrano, Barracas, Racing and San Lorenzo) and had lost three (Central Córdoba, Unión and Estudiantes). Now he was able to cut the bad news in Rosario and get his first victory as a visitor in this championship.

The word of Kaprof, author of the winning goal

“It is very important, but we knew that we were going to win, we had a lot of confidence even though we played on a difficult court and against an opponent that plays well. But this team is a machine, we trust each other, we all ran until the end, we left everything, we killed ourselves and this victory is a great joy. The goal belonged to everyone. I tell the fans that this team is going to leave everything because they want to continue in the First Division.”
