Arsenal de Sarandí gave the note and increased the crisis of Racing Club in the Professional League Cup, with a victory away from zone 1.
The Sarandí team’s victory was 2-0, thanks to goals from Lucas Albertengo and Jhonatan Candia, both in the first half.
Racing once again suffered from its lack of effectiveness, creating several scoring chances, but not being able to specify them, especially with Lisandro López and Héctor Fértoli.
The first emotion of the match was at 3 minutes with a prepared play carried out perfectly for Arsenal de Sarandí’s goal, defined by Lucas Albertengo after a couple of touches.
Racing took control of the ball with the disadvantage, but without much precision in the last line.
At 10, the Viaduct team had a clear chance that Nicolás Castro could not define by a few centimeters.
Lucas Orban was close to the equalizer with a header, but his shot was narrowly deflected.
Racing had a very clear chance with Licha López finishing a bit bitten, but Gagliardo gave a long rebound and Fértoli could not finish.
At 19, the Arsenal goalkeeper was called a hero to get a very powerful header from the youthful Carlos Alcaraz.
With the passing of the minutes, Racing went ahead and approaching the goal, dominating the control of the ball, but with the problems of definition and lack of efficiency that it carries.
The visit lost the scorer, Lucas Albertengo through injury, at 28 minutes, for the entry of Leonel Picco.
After several minutes of little activity in the meeting, La Academia had two chances in one minute but could not define it with Fértoli.
While Racing was losing goals, the visitor made him pay and scored the second thanks to a good play of pure power and precision from the Uruguayan
Jhonatan Candia in the 37th minute, building a wall, beating Sigali’s back and defining before the departure of Arias.
The first half ended with the same trend, with Racing not being able to find spaces for general danger and Arsenal comfortable waiting to recover and quickly go against it.
The start of the add-on was nothing different from what happened in the first part. The local dominating possession but when they reached three quarters of the field, hitting the visitor’s closed defensive line.
The entry of Benjamín Garré gave Beccacece’s men more imbalance on the right wing.
At 14 minutes, Racing was deep and with a couple of headers in the area, Licha López was left alone in front of the goalkeeper, but he defined poorly and gave it to the goalkeeper.
On the next play there was a clash between Licha and Fabio Pereyra, which ended with a yellow for the captain of the Academy and some interdictions with Arsenal players.
At 29 there was a double opportunity for Racing with a shot from outside the area of Miranda and in the continuity of the play Fértoli defined well above.
A minute later, Racing got the goal with Jonathan Cristaldo, but was just ahead and everything was canceled.
At 37 there was an incredible play with a series of rebounds in the area and a shot from Eugenio Mena that deflected and hit the crossbar.
The next few minutes showed Beccacece’s men going into desperation and looking everywhere for the discount, but without many ideas.
A sample of Racing’s frustration came in the discount with the expulsion of its captain, Lisandro López for a double yellow.
With the victory, Arsenal adds 4 points and reached the Union de Santa Fe line. The leader of the area is Atlético Tucumán with 9.
On the fourth date, Racing will visit Atlético Tucumán on Thursday and Arsenal will host Unión SF on Friday.
