Vélez Sarsfield defeated San Lorenzo 2 to 1 at home to finish fourth in the Professional Football League, almost missing out on a berth in the Copa Libertadores 2022, while Boedo’s men accentuated their poor season.
With two goals from Lucas Janson (1m. and 28m. PT), Vélez won the twentieth match played in Liniers, and San Lorenzo was able to discount with a goal against Francisco Ortega (16m. PT).
As a result, Vélez is in fourth place with 34 points, while San Lorenzo is in twenty-fourth place with 20 points.
In the first half, Vélez took advantage of a play initiated by Federico Mancuello and received by Lucas Janson, who scored with a header.
When Agustin Martegani defined the goal defended by Lucas Hoyos with an overflow on the left, Francisco Ortega tried to clear the ball with his chest, but the ball entered after 16 minutes.
The game became a round trip for both teams, with Andrés Herrera and Julián Palacios attacking on the right flank for the “azulgrana.”
Vélez, for his part, leaned on Janson, who, at this point in the game, was the most destabilizing player.
However, after 28 minutes, Vélez took advantage of two San Lorenzo errors, the first of which was a poor clearance by Francisco Flores, which was left to Janson, who defined and found Sebastián Torrico, who was unable to contain the ball.
With attacks from Nicolás Fernández Mercau, who fed forwards Franco Di Santo and Nicolás “Uvita” Fernández in the second half, Boedo’s team looked to the left.
Although the local team searched with Thiago Almada for a play to score the third goal, the “Fortn” defence began to make mistakes that the “Cyclone” tried to capitalize on.
As a result, when Luca Orellano came on at 41 minutes, he wanted Torrico, maybe for Velez’s third goal.
The setback highlights San Lorenzo’s poor form, which is eroding its chances of qualifying for the South American Cup. He will meet Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata at the Nuevo Gasómetro on the following date, while Vélez will fly to the province of Córdoba to face the River guard, Talleres.
Some fights between the footballers, which resulted in a “complete equipment” of admonished: 11, seven of them of the premises, added to the meeting’s uniqueness.
