Vélez defeated Lanús for the eleventh date of the League Cup by 2-1 and thus established himself at the top of Zone B, maintaining the difference of six points with his pursuers.
Garnet controlled the match with Alexander Bernabei’s goal at the start of the second half, but could not finish it off. A couple of times those led by Zubeldia collided with Alexander Domínguez and his captain, José Sand, missed an incredible chance to close the match.
Vélez took advantage of the local’s lack of forcefulness and Federico Mancuello equaled it in the 76th minute. The Uruguayan Matías de los Santos sealed the comeback at 88 so that the visitor was left with three very important points.
Those led by Pellegrino continue at the top of Zone B with 25 points, six more than Boca, their most immediate pursuer, and the next date will be local against Patronato.
For his part, Lanús was left with 16 units and with two games left, he is out of the standings. On date 12 he will be measured as a visitor against Boca in a decisive duel to get among the first four.
