How does Independent arrive?
El Rojo only suffered one defeat in the Tevez era (0-3 vs River). The rest were all joys: six wins, five draws and, most importantly, an important salvation from relegation, achieved by beating Atlético Tucumán 2-1 at the Monumental Presidente José Fierro, with goals from Joaquín Laso and Alexis Canelo.
Thanks to the impressive performance improvement, The King of Cups completely moved away from the red zone and is already dreaming of qualifying for the next phase of the Professional League Cup. For now, they are achieving their goal, collecting a total of 22 points after 12 games played (six won, four tied, two lost).
After the important victory against the Dean, Apache said: “I remember that when I arrived we were talking about hot iron, we knew why he said it. We knew we had to do everything we could to get out of that cursed situation called relegation, and I think it’s all on them. Because they achieved it, they believe in the idea and I stay with that, with the character that even though we lose a complicated game in the second half it is seen that, in the face of adversity, the team found character. And I’m happy about that.”
“It helps a lot, but we don’t have to trust ourselves. I think that we as a team perform much more when we are under pressure than when we relax, so it seems to me that we have to remain humble, working and continue with the same head that we have been doing until now. We have been doing very well. And we cannot relax because the people of Independiente will always want more, they will always ask for more. Now we must continue with the same humility and moving forward“he added.
How does Banfield arrive?
You can breathe now. After beating Colón 2-1 in agonizing fashion, El Taladro ensured its permanence in Primera and, like Independiente, dreams of moving to the quarterfinals of the championship. They are currently in fourth position in Zone A by achieving 19 points in 12 matches played, where they have five wins, four draws and three losses.
However, Salvation could not be understood without the string of seven consecutive matches without defeats that Falcioni’s men obtained, with three victories (1-0 vs Lanús, 1-0 vs Vélez, 2-1 vs Colón) and four equalities (1-1 vs River, 0-0 vs Arsenal, 0-0 vs Atlético Tucumán, 0-0 vs Workshops). Valuable numbers for a team that was immersed in the long-suffering fight for relegation to the Primera Nacional.
“We are happy for the commitment of the players. Now we are going to fight to enter between the four of us. We did a little bit of everything in our history at the club: we saved it from relegation and we were also champions. We are made. The match with Independiente is not special, the same thing happened when I went to Vélez two dates ago. I have a lot of respect for the people and for all the clubs I managed. They also came out of the complicated area and we will try to prepare the game in the best way,” analyzed the Emperor after taking the three points against Sabalero.
