Defense and Justice beat Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata today, at the Norberto Tomaghello stadium, 3-2, for the fourth date of the Professional League Cup, and reached the top of the Zone of the contest.

The start of the match was favorable for the local team, since after four minutes Walter Bou gave an excellent pass between the lines to Miguel Merentiel, who entered the area alone and eluded the visiting goalkeeper, Rodrigo Rey, to put the 1 to 0 partial.

Just a few minutes after the opening of the scoring, Gimnasia came close to matching it with a powerful Johan Carbonero shot that hit the crossbar.

At 13 minutes, Defense created another clear scoring opportunity. Striker Merentiel shot across the goal, but the ball was deflected by the rival goalkeeper.

Gimnasia would achieve equality after 36 minutes of the first stage with a header from Cristian Tarragona after a precise cross from Carbonero.

When it seemed that the first half ended in a tie, the local team took the lead again. Gabriel Hachen sent the ball into the area, where Carlos Rotondi arrived at full speed, who finished off with a volley to make it 2-1.

In the complement, there was a more open match, where both casts sought to get closer. Finally, at 24 minutes, Nicolás Tripichio received the ball in the area, settled in and with a powerful right hand put the 3-1.

Gymnastics was close to discounting through Carbonero, who pushed the ball into the goal, but was in an advanced position.

In the injury time, the cast of La Plata was able to discount through a goal against the defender of Defense Adonis Frías, but it only served to decorate the result of the match, which finally ended 3 to 2 in favor of the locals.

With this result, “Halcón” reached seven units and, with one more game, reached Platense and Unión at the top of the zone A table, while El “Lobo” continues with the four points accumulated in the first two days.

The next date Defensa y Justicia will visit Banfield on Sunday March 6 and Gimnasia will receive Argentinos Juniors on Friday 4.
