Santos climb to third place in the standings after beating San Luis
Another victory for Santos Laguna at the Apertura 2022. Last night they beat Atlético de San Luis 4-1 at the Corona, to move into third place in the standings.
The forced absences of Fernando Gorriarán, suspended, and Jair González, injured, did not weigh so much on the scheme put in place by Eduardo Fentanes, who yesterday had to resort to Ronaldo Prieto as a defender after a quarter of an hour , due to the injury of the Ecuadorian central defender Félix Torres, to whom he tore the front part of the right thigh, after making a “sprint” in the first half, against the Venezuelan Murillo.
The South American defender will surely miss the next duels of Guerreros against Tuzos, then at home against Necaxa and on a visit against Gallos Blancos. He is expected to pick him up for the postponed match against America, which will be played on Wednesday, September 14.
As soon as the teams were planted on the pitch, when the first goal came at 5 minute. Leo Suárez stole a ball through midfield, in an attempt to change the game, to control first with his head then with his polished left foot, He sent a pass with the outside to Harold Preciado, who after facing Barovero, was knocked down by “Trapito” himself inside the box.
The whistle Fernando Guerrero did not hesitate to signal the fault of the eleven steps and after a silent examination by the VAR, the “Mudo” Aguirre took charge of executing the maximum penalty, deceiving the Argentine goalkeeper.
With the advantage on the scoreboard, those of the County gained confidence. At 11′, Preciado served Aguirre, who with the potosina iron mark, chose to return the ball to the Colombian, who fired a shot, who was looking for the base of the visitor’s post.
At minute 17, Torres Caicedo scored for the albiverde cause, but was ‘caught’ out of place, after receiving a ball from ‘Mudo’, which at first, had extended with the head, but also in a forward position.
The sanluisinos, wanted to react and equalize the match. Long range shooting was the option they chose. At 19′, the Uruguayan Sanabria unleashes a shot with his left foot, but without too much direction, so much so that at 24′, the Uruguayan Facundo Waller also unleashes a free kick, which falls directly into the hands of ‘Acevedo.
The Verdiblancos were able to increase the count, before going to half-time, but Harold’s shot was checked by ‘Trapito’, while ‘Mudo”s shot went wide of the goal.
In the complement, the locals quickly sought to surprise, but Brunetta’s shot at the entrance to the surface went straight into the south header.
But at 48′, Santos Laguna scored again. It’s in a game that was born after a throw-in from the right sector executed by “Charal” Orrantia. The ball went to Leo Suárez, who after removing the mark from two opponents with a fake, lit the ball with his left foot, to surprise Barovero, with an unstoppable kick.
Preciado wasted in the 57′, a nice service on the fly from the left of Omar Campos, when he started with a header, but directly at the place where the visitor goalkeeper was, who hardly saved the segments.
The Brazilian wanted to do some damage in the 59th minute, with an overflow on the right and after heading diagonally towards Santos’ goal, he fired a shot, which was controlled by the goalkeeper. But the third of the Albiverdes arrived.
It was at 63′ that Javier Correa, who had entered the field for Preciado, received from the right sector, to go towards the semi-circle of the surface of Potosí. He fired a shot that hit a defender in the head, so the Argentine himself controlled it and gave in to Cecilio Domínguez, who served the ‘Mudo’, but Aguirre cleared the way for his better-described teammate Correa to practically shoot Barovero.
Suárez almost scored his brace, in the collection of a free kick, which the Potosí goalkeeper with his leg managed to repel. The match was played, with Albiverdes completely ahead and a rival, without any reaction.
But Santos Laguna’s fourth came in the 77th, when Correa received from behind and extended on his right side, for the arrival of “Charal” Orrantia, who pulled the trigger, for a center shot to come out , when Rivaldo arrives. Lozano, who only closed the clamp.
The students of Fentanes looked for the fifth, but Atlético de San Luis was more careful, but with the time elapsed they scored the honorable goal, when Sambueza received a ball in the style of burgundy Murillo, to put it far from Acevedo’s reach. There was no time for more and the final whistle came.
