Independiente returned to action after being left out of the League Cup quarterfinals and defeated Juventud Unida 2-0 to advance to the round of 16 of the Argentine Cup.

Carlitos Tevez’s team clashed against the Salta team in La Fortaleza de Lanús and, although it did not shine, it was enough to get into the next stage of the domestic cup with the novelty of the debut of Santi López, one of the team’s jewels.

El Rojo clearly dominated the actions, but lacked clarity in the final meters to translate possession of the ball into a goal. In fact, the first half ended without emotions and with a blanket of tension in the Independiente stands, which saw that his team could not break the rival defense.

Alexis Canelo had the clearest shot in the first 45 minutes after a good collective play. He had to push it after the Chilean Islas’ center but he ended up taking it out instead of putting it in.

Already in the complement, Rojo was finally able to score the first goal in the 61st minute, from a corner kick. Canelo redeemed himself after his mistake and made it 1-0 with a header that burned Juventud Unida’s nets.

After the score, Independiente did not take its foot off the accelerator and went for second, but it only arrived before the final whistle.

Alex Luna, who came in as a catalyst, sealed the game with a good finish before the goalkeeper came out, at 89, in what was his second goal with the Avellaneda team shirt.

With this result, Independiente entered the round of 16 of the Argentine Cup and will have to face the winner of the match between El Porvenir and Godoy Cruz.
