Libertad destroyed Cerro Porteño in his new pot, with pure effectiveness and with a decisive Antonio Bareiro, something that is already customary when the rival on duty is the Cyclone. The “Demon” contributed a goal and an assist so that Gumarelo quickly sentenced the lawsuit in Barrio Obrero and retake the leadership of the Apertura tournament again.
The development of the game globally was quite even, but Libertad did not fail in offense practically and before each waste of Cerro, he responded with a goal and ended up sealing a win in Barrio Obrero.
In the first half, both had great chances, mainly with mid-distance shots, since inaccuracies abounded, with a very uncomfortable Cerro due to Gumarelo’s strategic pressure on key men, such as Claudio Aquino and Ángel Cardozo Lucena.
Lucena was precisely the first to warn with a great shot inside the area, but Martín Silva covered in a great way. Libertad responded with a “missile” from Blas Cáceres and little by little it made a better impression than the local in attack.
“Tacuara” Cardozo tried a tremendous shot from a very distant position and Miguel Martínez barely served.
Gumarelo, who was injured after the elimination in the Copa Libertadores, came in the complementary game.
After a good collective move on the left, “Tacuara” assisted with a tremendous quality chest and Héctor “Tito” Villalba, friendly with good play and goals, signed the 1-0 partial.
Libertad punished Cerro very hard, since in the previous one, Mauro Boselli “ate” an incredible goal. Robert Morales overflowed and gave him only in front of the goal, without a goalkeeper, but he screwed up the ball incredibly.
About 10 minutes into the complementary, the preferred perpetrator of Cerro Porteño, Antonio Bareiro, entered.
The demon took just over ten minutes to do his thing and confirm that he is the lord and master of the New Pot. After an overflow from Blas Cáceres and a deflected center, he found a ball inside the area and made it 2-0.
But Bareiro wanted more and to leave his stamp again and in a masterful counterattack, he only attended the boy Julio Enciso, who finally sealed the categorical 3-0.
Libertad thrashed, recovered his motivation and above all, he is once again the leader of the tournament, which he had lost for a day at the hands of Nacional.

COVID-19 hits the health of anyone very hard, even high-level athletes, such as Lucas Barrios, who will have to rest for a while due to the side effects of the disease.
The Paraguayan striker missed the La Plata classic, between his team, Gimnasia y Esgrima and Estudiantes, due to myocarditis detected by the club’s cardiologists, after having twice acquired the COVID-19 virus, which leaves sequelae even in players of football, which in theory have more defenses due to their athletic preparation.
“After cardiological studies, it was found that the player Lucas Barrios suffers from mild myocarditis, of a viral inflammatory nature”, as a result of the reinfection of COVID-19
“The medical recommendations say that I have to stop for a while. It is good that we give the message to people. It is the second time that COVID-19 has caught me, I had antibodies and everything. I live this moment that is not beautiful for anyone “The important thing is slight and I can recover soon,” said Barrios, also leaving a message to the clubs, so that much emphasis is placed on the cardiological part of the athletes.
