Incidents in the Godoy Cruz stands in the duel against San Lorenzo

Violence won again and the match was tied (1-1) Godoy Cruz and San Lorenzo in the stadium Argentine Falklands from Mendoza was suspended following the serious incidents which was carried out by a group of local supporters, who threw stones and other forceful elements onto the playing field.

The referee Nazarene Arasa decided to suspend the match 7 minutes of the second half seeing that there were not enough guarantees to ensure the safety of the footballers. During much of the initial stage, the violent ones began to throw projectiles at the visiting goalkeeper, Gaston chila Gomez and the referee had to momentarily stop the actions while fights broke out in the stands between the fans of the Tomb who wanted to evict the violent people.

“Is suspended. The guarantees were not given. We exhaust all possible instances that there may be. It is about taking care of the physical integrity of everyone, of the players, of us, of what the show is. We began to hear the gunshots, the head of the operation came and did not give me the guarantees. I think the best and healthiest thing is to have suspended it and then decide when the remaining time will be played,” said Arasa once he made the decision.

For his part, Godoy Cruz’s goalkeeper, Franco Petroligave his point of view and regretted what happened: “It’s a shame not to be able to play, not to be able to do what we want so much. The truth is that this doesn’t add up to anything.. This is a spectacle, we all come to give each other so that it goes well, so that it turns out to be a nice game, for the people who also come to support and accompany this team. That it ends like this makes it a little sad.”

The player also spoke Nahuel Ulariagaauthor of Godoy Cruz’s goal. “I’m very sad. We prepare for the game all week, we make a huge effort and for these things to happen it hurts a lot. There were three stops, we got cold, we felt the cold. We are very hurt, it is a shame that these things happen. “I don’t know why these things happen, but it has to be solved outside the field, not here where they harm us,” said the forward.

Regarding the development of the match, the team led by Daniel Oldrá began winning thanks to a header from Ulariaga 35 minutes into the first half. San Lorenzo reached a tie at the end of the eventful first stage with a goal from the Paraguayan Adam Bareirowhich was finally annulled at the request of the VAR due to an infraction by the forward on goalkeeper Petroli at the time of the definition.

However, those led by Pee Romagnoli converted the tie through Agustín Giay, who defined with class before Petroli’s departure. In the complement there was little or no football, since violence took over the scene and referee Arasa had no choice but to suspend the match after 7 minutes. It remains to be seen when the remaining time will be rescheduled and it will be the decision of the Professional League.

Regarding both teams, San Lorenzo will have an agenda full of commitments: on Thursday, May 30, the qualification for the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores will be played in Brazil against Palmeiras and on Monday, June 3, they will host Sarmiento de Junín in he New Gasometer for the fourth date of the Professional League.
