The Copa Argentina 2020 is going through its decisive instance. But in a decision at least controversial and above all badly announced and in a hurry, the semifinal between Talleres and Godoy Cruz, which was set for this Friday at 10:30 p.m. in San Luis, suffered a postponement to December 1.

After Tomba’s victory over Tigre, in the previous phase, there was a meeting between José Mansur, president of the Mendoza entity, and Juan Bautista Fassi, Andrés’s brother -mandas of the Cordovan club- and finance secretary. And instead of playing in the first week of November, like Boca against Argentinos, both leaders agreed to play the other semifinal on Friday 12. They asked that the match that, coincidentally, faced them for the Professional League be scheduled for Saturday and they all stayed compliant.
But the devil stuck his tail. Or rather Reinaldo Rueda, who when he found out about Radamel Falcao’s injury and that he would not have it for the Knockout window, decided to summon Diego Valoyes for the Colombian National Team. And the Cordovan leaders sent a letter to the AFA demanding the change of date due to this “unexpected” loss.
In Godoy Cruz they reacted with anger. “We consider the request of Talleres de Córdoba as inadmissible and in violation of all rules of fair competition, seeking full sporting advantage, above what is established,” Mansur stated in a harsh statement.

Boca waits in the final, which would be played on December 8 or 9. On the 17th, meanwhile, the Champions Trophy will be played between Colón, winner of the League Cup, and the champion of the current tournament.
