In Lima Alliance they all have the same heartbeat: it is perceived with the breath that comes from the four stands of the Alejandro Villanueva stadium and, of course, with this version of those led by Guillermo Salas, who only needed five minutes to resolve a 90-minute match. Pablo Lavandeira and Hernán Barcos, undoubtedly the most influential players in La Victoria, scored against Melgar and placed the intimate one point behind Sporting Cristal, the leader of the Closing Tournament.
At the start, around 4′, the Uruguayan Lavandeira took advantage of a pivot from the ‘Pirata’ and did not spare the goal of the ‘rojinegro’. And when the stands continued to shake their throats, Hernán Barcos appeared at the minute: after a bad start from Pablo Lavallén’s box, the Argentine ‘9’ made a great individual move and did not forgive. He is on a roll: the previous date he scored a brace in the win over Carlos Stein, in Jaén.
Now, around 11 ‘, the ‘León’ woke up and disturbed Kevin Quevedo. The ’27 ′ sent a center that little by little was closing and was about to inflate the Victorian nets, but Ángelo Campos showed his reflexes and sent it to the corner. It was not the only duel that the blue and white ‘1’ won the winger in that first stage: at 17 ‘he caught a cannon shot from outside the area. About 27 ‘, the local team pressed the accelerator again and almost made it 3-0: Pablo Lavandeira looked for Cristian Benavente, but Carlos Cáceda came out with everything.
In the complementary stage, Lima Alliance advanced his lines: at 59′ Hernán Barcos received a great pass from Jairo Concha and was about to hang Carlos Cáceda. The ball passed near the goal of Melgar. About 65 ′ Paolo Reyna tried with a long-distance left foot. Although at 70 ‘the intimates again took the actions to the opposite field: Arley Rodríguez overflowed, but the Arequipa club’s fund responded well.
At 81 ′ Cristian Bordacahar, who would later look at the red card, was close to scoring the discount, but he was not precise in the heads-up. Lima Alliance He would try to make it 3-0 with Aldair Rodríguez, even twice: his first shot hit the post and the second was deflected by Cáceda. Then the marker would not move more in Matute, where a party was lived during the 90 minutes. The Blue and Whites are candidates in the Closing Tournament.
