With the 0-0, the garnet has accumulated five consecutive games without knowing the victory
The visitors have only lost one match and remain separated from the bottom of the table
The fifth day of the Argentine League Cup started with the group B match between Lanus y Sarmientowhich ended with a point for both teams, despite the numerical inferiority of the purslane.
The squad led by Pablo Lavallén was able to take the lead after a shot by Agustín ‘Chino’ Fontana that was canceled by the VAR for a millimeter offside. The visitors were able to hold on to the result despite the expulsion of Alan Marinelli for a double yellow in the 75th minute.
The maroon team has already accumulated five games without winning in the second phase of the Argentine championship. The possibility of maintaining the classification for the Sudamericana next year is in danger for Sebastián Salomón’s team, pursued by Estudiantes de la Plata with just one point waiting for their duel against San Lorenzo. Sarmiento remains somewhat away from the bottom of the table, with only one defeat in the five rounds played in the League Cup, which places him as the leader of his area until Newell’s and Racing play their respective duel this week.
Argentine football will continue this Tuesday with the matches between Rosario Central and Independiente, Huracán and Gimnasia within zone A. Meanwhile, group B will have a match between a Central Córdoba that doubles in points a Boca Juniors that has only achieved one victory in four days. Wednesday’s match will feature Barracas Central-Banfield, Vélez-Arsenal and Instituto-Colón with respect to group A, and for the fight on side B there will be a Defensa y Justicia-Tigre, Estudiantes-San Lorenzo and the aforementioned match for the leadership between Racing Club and Newell’s. To finish matchday five, which ends this Thursday, Argentinos Juniors-Talleres and River Plate-Atlético Tucumán will play on one side, and Belgrano-Platense and Unión-Godoy Cruz on the other in Group B.
