With a mistake from Entre Ríos Ezequiel Unsain, Arsenal defeated Defense and Justice

Arsenal beat Defense and Justice 1 to 0 at Tito Tomaghello for the interzonal on Date 11 of the Professional League Cup. Both teams came from long trips to Bolivia and Ecuador for their presentations in the Copa Sudamericana and Libertadores, respectively.

The local goalkeeper, Luis Ezequiel Unsain, from Entre Ríos, converted against his own fence after a shot from Emiliano Papa on the left that bounced off his near post, 8 minutes into the first stage.

In a weak first half of the Halcón de Varela, Sarandí’s team had three more opportunities to stretch the lead on the scoreboard: two by Brian Farioli, at 24 and 26 minutes, and one by Miguel Merentiel, at 30.

In the second half, Defensa y Justicia improved their football performance with the changes proposed by coach Sebastián Beccacece to seek equality. So Braian Romero was close to equalizing (they disallowed a goal for advanced position), but Florencio Varela’s team left empty-handed.

This result benefits Independiente (17 points), Talleres (16), Lanús (16) and Unión (15) in Zone 2, since Defense was lower with 12. Arsenal, meanwhile, achieved its third victory in the championship and left the bottom of the standings in Zone 1, where Aldosivi continues, at least until he visits Platense tomorrow.
