Hurricane beat Platense 2-0 and maintains its illusion of fighting for the title

Huracán beat Platense 2-0 at the close of date 26 of the Professional Soccer League, and maintains its chances of fighting for the title. At the Tomás Adolfo Ducó Stadium, the Globe’s goals were scored by Franco Cristaldo, from a penalty at the end of the first half, and in the second half Matías Cóccaro widened the differences.

In a start with few nuances at 15 minutes there was a controversy since Franco Camargo held Matías Cóccaro’s shirt inside the area and Zorro fell, but Nazareno Arasa did not sanction a penalty nor did he receive the VAR call.

Then both had chances and the match was stick and stick. Halfway through the first half, Huracán was a little more and deserved to take the lead.

At 43 minutes, Cóccaro redeemed himself with a foul that was sanctioned. It was when Mauro Zárate dribbled towards his own area, he lost the ball with Zorro, whom he had to knock down to avoid the goal. Arasa scored the penalty and Franco Cristaldo scored his eighth penalty goal and number 14 in the championship. The attacking midfielder is the second scorer in the championship behind Mateo Retegui (19 shouts).

When the players went to the locker room, as reported in the TNT Sports broadcast, Gastón Suso reproached Zárate for his mistake and the former Boca Juniors player was replaced at halftime, but did not return to the substitute bench in the second half.

In the complement the meeting entered a plateau and there were no emotions. Hurricane got close, but could not break the last line of Platense. The attempts of the Globe became a set piece and that way the second came. At 31 minutes Cóccaro won with a header after a corner kick and widened the gap.

After Racing’s victory against Lanús, Diego Dabove’s team had to win to preserve their aspirations and now they are three points behind the Academy. Now you have to hope that Boca Juniors did not beat Gimnasia in the 81 minutes they owe of the game suspended due to the incidents in the Forest and that it will be completed this Thursday. If the Xeneize does not add three, the Globe will keep its chances until the last date.

As long as the qualification to the Sudamericana is assured, Huracán still dreams of reaching the Libertadores.

In case of maintaining the chances in the fight for the Professional League title, Huracán will play on Sunday against Patronato in Paraná at the same time as Boca Juniors-Independiente and Racing-River Plate.

While Platense will close its participation against Lanús in Vicente López, in a duel in which both will seek to end a bad job in the championship with a victory.
