The garnet goal:
With this victory, Lanús successfully defended the top of the competition, took four points ahead of “Rojo” and is waiting for what happens with Talleres de Córdoba to see if he is the only leader.
At the end of the first half, midfielder Tomás Belmonte saw the second yellow by referee Silvio Trucco, with some controversy, which provoked protests from the entire “Garnet” team.
At the start of the complement, Lanús bet on the counterattack or some stopped ball, precisely the action that ended up giving him the victory.
Correntino José Manuel López jumped more than Barreto at the far post and, with a head butt to the ground, beat Sebastián Sosa.
