Palmeiras wins Defensa in Argentina and opens advantage in Recopa

SÃO PAULO, SP (FOLHAPRESS) – Winner of the Campeonato Paulista, Copa Libertadores and Copa do Brasil in the extended season 2020, Palmeiras is close to their first title of 2021. The team alviverde started Recopa Sul-Americana defeating Defensa y Justicia by 2 to 1, in Argentina, and opened advantage in the decision. Ron and Gustavo Scarpa scored the goals of the triumph at the Tito Tomaghello stadium, in Florencio Varela, metropolitan area of ​​Buenos Aires. Braian Romero rocked the net for the Argentine formation, who will have to fight for the turnaround in Brazil. The confrontation between the champion of the Libertadores and the owner of the Copa Sudamericana will be concluded next Wednesday (14), in Brasília. Because of the restrictions imposed on sports in São Paulo, Palmeiras will seek the title at the Mané Garrincha stadium. For that, Abel Ferreira’s team will play with the advantage of a draw. Defensa y Justicia will need to win by two goals difference or triumph by one goal and force the overtime dispute. In that case, if no one gets ahead in the extra time, there will be penalties. In Recopa, there is no tiebreaker for goals scored away from home. Even so, the Alviverde team repeated what they did well in their winning campaign in the 2020 season and knew how to get away from their domains. It was not a simple task. Even without fans at the stadium – as has been the norm during the pandemic of the new coronavirus – Defensa started the match by pressing and was close to opening the scoring. Directed by Sebastián Beccacece, the Argentine team continued to exhibit some of the qualities that led them to the South American title, under the command of Hernán Crespo, today in São Paulo. One was the precise touch of the ball. According to statistics from Conmebol, home owners had almost 61% of possession in the first half. With good passes, they created dangerous moves and were very close to the goal from the beginning: Brian Romero received in the area and hit hard in the corner, stopping at Weverton. When he was in difficulty, however, Palmeiras fit the type of move that he performs so well, the agile attack after the disarm in the intermediary. Viña intercepted the game and left the ball with Willian. She quickly reached Ron, who was faster than the back, came out in the goalkeeper’s face and swung the net in the 16th minute. The bid gave greater tranquility to the visitors, who started to control the actions a little more. However, the design of the match has not changed. The Argentine team exchanged passes in search of spaces. The Brazilian was armed to take the ball in the middle and advance at speed. In this scenario, opportunities arose for both sides. Romero took advantage of one of them, in the 13th minute of the final stage, when the tiredness of the Palmeiras players began to become clear. Bou received on Felipe Melo’s back and left the striker in a good position to score. Abel Ferreira then decided to give the alviverde team new gas, spending all their replacements. Gustavo Scarpa entered well and hit two fouls accurately. In the second of them, on 28 minutes, he surpassed the goalkeeper Unsain. Defensa y Justicia pressed again for the tie and reached the net, with Bou, at 37. A very contested impediment was signaled by the referees, however, which allowed Palmeiras to leave Argentina close to another cup.
