Independiente beat Estudiantes for the quarterfinals of the League Cup from twelve steps by 4-1, after tying at zero in the 90 minutes. In the semifinals they will face Colón or Talleres de Córdoba.
In the first half, neither team had many opportunities. The clearest of the Pincha was Noguera, but the ball hit the crossbar. The visitor could not violate Andújar’s resistance, which contained the most dangerous occasion in the first 45 minutes for Rojo.
In the second half there were not many arrivals to the goal either, the highlight was the incredible expulsion that Thomas Ortega suffered for a double yellow for a foul that he never committed and that the referee Pablo Echavarría did not observe well.
In the semifinal and for a place in the final, Independiente will face the winner of Colón de Santa Fe and Talleres de Córdoba.
