The party began complicated for the Garnet. Before the end of the first half, Real Pilar made it 1-0: Crego had the ball left in the middle of the area, the footballer settled down and finished in front of the goal.
The action continued in the second and after a cross from Esquivel, Martínez, wanting to reject, left the ball in his arms and the referee sanctioned the infraction. Pepe Sand, from the penalty spot, was in charge of equalizing the match 2 minutes into the game.
Then came the first controversy of the night in Sarandí: Pérez committed a serious infraction to Ríos at 18 minutes and only saw the yellow one. The footballer endured less than 10 on the field and had to be substituted. Once the modification took place, the second goal from Lanús arrived, the work of Franco Orozco, who was in an advanced position when the play began.
In added time, Luís Zubeldia’s team made it to the next round with a goal from Nicolás Orsini.
