The Admiral (Brown) eliminated the General (San Martín)

The Argentine Cup always has that special flavor in its matches. Sometimes the youngest plays against the biggest. On other occasions, two clubs from the same category play against each other. This Wednesday they merged together. Almirante Brown and San Martín (T) tied 3-3 in a true great game. La Frigata took it on penalties and now goes against Boca in the round of 16.

The motivation of knowing that if you pass, Xeneize awaits you, is great, and both showed that they wanted to play this duel against Diego Martínez’s team no matter what. Throughout the 90 minutes, the moments of the match were divided. Basically it was a time for everyone. When it seemed that Mirasol was celebrating quietly, things got complicated.

At the beginning, the obvious was stated. The Tucumans were superior to their rival, and they had him in an arc. Let us remember that Ciruja is second in the National and Almirante is second to last. So this start in favor of Flores’ team seemed obvious. But a great play by Tomás Almada, who scored a great goal, put Isidro Casanova’s team ahead.

After the first goal, two more came. In four clear goal situations, La Frigata, with Indio Bazán Vera as coach, scored three. They were all born from a good defense that was accompanied by a great counterattack. Santiago Gauna and Tomás Díaz (son of Cata) made the game 3-0 before the end of the first half.

But football is a dynamic of the unexpected. When it seemed that the victory was going quietly for La Matanza, San Martín played a great second half, and went from 3-0 to 3-3. A double from Nahuel Banegas and the agonizing goal from the endless Gonzalo Klusener at 49m took the matter to penalties. Yes, Boca’s rival, curiously, was defined via the 12 steps.

Mono Martínez, raised in football in Xeneize, dressed as a hero, and put his Almirante Brown in the round of 16 of the Argentine Cup. Ciruja only converted the first penalty taken by Klusener. Arias, Hernández and Moreno failed. On the part of the Frigate, Pomelo Vera, Gauna and Miño, changed the shot into a goal.

In this way and in a match not suitable for the faint of heart, the team led by former uNión striker, Daniel Bazán Vera, will face Boca. Deserved? Yes. What was best for the game was a draw. This happened, and on penalties, Almirante showed himself much better than his rival. Congratulations Frigate!

The first official

In the round of 16 of the Argentine Cup, Boca will face off against Almirante Brown. Even without a confirmed date or venue, the Frigate is going for the upset against Xeneize. Now, how many times did they face each other? There are not many, and in fact none of them were for official matches, so the upcoming clash between the two will be the first for an official competition.

Throughout history, they only saw each other twice. Both were in friendlies played at the Fragata stadium. The first took place in 1972 and was a 2-0 victory for the team led by Diego Martínez today. Seasons later, in 1979, the one who left smiling was Almirante, who won the duel 1-0. 45 years later they meet again for a national Cup. Who will win?

The people of Santiago woke up at the end

Miter from Santiago del Estero scored 1-0 in added time against Gimnasia de Mendoza in the round of 16 of the Argentine Cup and qualified for the next phase of the tournament. The match was played this Wednesday on the Estudiantes de Caseros field.

Gaspar Triverio’s celebration

El Lobo had reached this stage after eliminating Unión in 32nds. For its part, the Santiago team had left Belgrano on the road. Now, they will face the winner of River-Temperley, which will be played on Tuesday the 21st at 9:10 p.m. at the Malvinas Argentinas stadium.

Aurinegro had the first of the game 10m into the first half, when Franco Posse scored what was 1-0, however, it was annulled due to offside. The remainder of the first 45 was a dispute where both teams that play in the Primera Nacional analyzed each other. They went into the break 0-0.

In the second half, during the first minutes they did not generate emotions until Miter hinted at danger almost at the end of the match. Thus, 45 minutes into the second half, Ciccolini touched the ball with his hand in his area, committing a very clear penalty for the people of Santiago that the referee did not charge.

When it seemed that everything was ending in penalties, at 47m, Gaspar Triverio (Enrique’s brother) took an airy right hand from outside the area and nailed the ball near the upper left corner to seal the match and give Miter the classification to the round of 16 at the end.
