Racing beat San Lorenzo

Yes, that’s right. San Lorenzo entered the summer action in Mar del Plata on Wednesday night against Racing, and they suffered the indignity of actually losing to Juan Manuel Llop’s side.

In what was essentially a match between reserve sides, there was plenty of poor passing and neither side looked fully interested. The best chance of the first half fell to San Lorenzo’s Germán Voboril, who managed to sky a shot over the crossbar from inside the six yard box following a cross from Juan Carlos Menseguez.

In the second half Racing showed more ambition, and both sides traded chances to a far greater degree than in the first half. Racing began to have the better of possession, although they didn’t manage to work too many openings but, eventually, the deadlock was broken. Franco Sosa was fouled and from the free kick, taken by Juan Carlos Falcón, Matías Martínez rose highest to head into the net.

As the match drew to a close San Lorenzo encountered a very secure-looking Gustavo Campagnuolo in the Racing goal, looking strong after nigh-on a year out of the first team. It didn’t help that Hugo Barrientos also hit the crossbar late on. Racing will take that luck for now, though, and hope it continues into the competitive matches.
