I didn’t get round to making another post last weekend, because I was working on the tennis and struggled to stay awake during the football, never mind after it to write. But the second round of the 2014 Torneo Final began on Friday night with just the one match, between Godoy Cruz and Quilmes. Godoy had been totally outplayed last weekend away to Argentinos Juniors, but were superb this time, winning 2-0 even though they missed a lot of chances. That’s tempered by the fact that Quilmes ended the game with nine men.
Already 2-0 down at the break, Quilmes manager Blas Giunta made three substitutions at half time, and a few minutes into the second half saw Damián Leyes go off injured, reducing his side to ten men. When, only minutes after that, Jonathan Zacaria was sent off, it was effectively game over, with more than half an hour still to play.
I’ve no idea why the author of this video thought this music went well with it, but I’m glad s/he did.
