(EFE) – October 12, he beat Rosario Central on Tuesday 1-0, with a goal by Pablo Velázquez, on the first day of group A of the Copa Sudamericana in a gray match in which the Argentines showed their dependence on the midfielder Emiliano Vecchio.
The local goal came in the 69th minute, when October 12 was exhausted, leaving spaces on the sides, authentic corridors not used by the Rosario who did not deserve to lose, but were surprised by Velázquez’s play.
The striker scored an anthology goal, a turn and a cross shot to the left post of Jorge Broum.
The team led by Pedro Sarabia grew after that goal, but Velázquez’s action was the only remarkable thing in a match between two gray teams on the field.
And it is that the team from the city of Itauguá, home to the Luis Alfonso Giagni, the Sol de América stadium, locked itself in its area from minute one in an ultra-conservative scheme that it already repeated in its two games against Nacional, at which he eliminated in the first phase of local teams after a rematch on penalties.
This gave space to the ‘Canalla’ team, which despite controlling that half depended excessively on Vecchio, the engine that when it fails leaves the rest of the team off.
Vecchio always promoted game distributions with long balls that were lost before the defensive wall of the rival defense, with the experienced Paulo Da Silva providing security to goalkeeper Mauro Cardozo.
On October 12 he was unable to generate counterattacks, although he had the collaboration of a team from Rosario without ideas and disorderly.
Two shots on goal in the first half, by Marco Ruben and Lucas Gamba, gave the appearance of danger in that period, in which October 12 did not appear on the rival field.
With the result, 12 de Octubre leads Group A, which also includes the Argentine San Lorenzo and the Chilean Huachipato.
