Defense and Justice receives this Thursday Aldosivi at the Arsenal stadium, in looking for a victory by six goals difference to qualify for the final of the Complementation Zone from Diego Maradona Cup, in the middle of his participation in the semifinal of the Sudamericana. The match, postponed last Sunday to today at 5:45 p.m., is set at the Julio Humberto Grondona stadium, in Sarandí, arbitration by Mauro Vigliano and broadcast by Fox Sports Premium.
El Halcón moved its premises to the Viaduct to preserve the state of Norberto Tomaghello’s playing field for the semifinal round of the South American Cup, which will play next Saturday at 8:30 p.m. with Coquimbo, from Chile.
The urgencies of the calendar force the team led by Hernán Crespo to catch up on the Diego Maradona Cup less than 48 hours after playing (and equalizing without goals) in Paraguay the postponed first leg of the subcontinental semifinal.
In the midst of the historic opportunity to go to an international final, Defense can access the definition of the Complementation phase to compete with Vélez Sarsfield for a place in the Copa Sudamericana 2022, but first he must win by six goals to overcome Rosario’s line Central. If he succeeds, the match against Vélez, scheduled for this Saturday in San Juan, will have to be postponed, as it will coincide with the rematch against the Chilean team.
Aldosivi, for his part, will close his participation in the Diego Maradona Cup under the leadership of Favio “Yagui” Fernández, who took over temporarily after the departure of Ángel Guillermo Hoyos after the defeat against Unión (3-1) in Mar del Plata. El Tiburon suffered six deaths due to coronavirus, among them, those of goalkeeper Fabián Assmann and Francisco Grahl, who were going to be headlines but were added to three infections from the previous week, plus absences due to injuries of Marcos Miers, Nahuel Yeri and Javier Iritier .
