Lanús beat Defensa y Justicia for the second date of Zone 2 of the Professional League Cup by 2-1 with goals from Tomán Belmonte and José Sand, Baraian Romero had marked the temporary equality.
All the emotions of the match were in the first half. The local opened the scoring five minutes into the game with a half-return from Belmonte, but Romero achieved the equalizer with a goal at 27 minutes. The eternal scorer, Sand changed a penalty for goal in the 35th minute and established the 2-1, which would be the final result.
In the second half, Beccacece’s team looked for an equalizer but a couple of good interventions by Morales drowned out the possibility of taking a point from La Fotaleza.
The next date, Lanús will be a visitor in Santa Fe against Unión. For its part, Defense and Justice will receive the Board of Trustees at the Norberto Tomaghello.
