The game started very badly for the Gimnasia team with an expulsion after 16 minutes of play. From then on, the game was dominated by San Lorenzo, who would go ahead on the scoreboard still in the 1st half. Gimnasia La Plata would end up not having great game opportunities and San Lorenzo was totally demolishing, ending up expanding the result to 4-0.
Gimnasia La Plata needs to quickly start winning points if they want to leave the bottom of the table. They are the team that scores the least goals (only 3 goals) and the 2nd worst defense (with 10 goals conceded). Even so, the home factor has been extremely important for Gimnasia, as it was at home that they managed to score 4 of the 5 points they have so far. In a game as important as the derby, Gimnasia La Plata will try to add at least one point to the table.
Estudiantes comes to this game after an excellent victory over Huracan (2-1). It was a very divided game, however, Estudiantes was always a little more dominant, taking advantage of the home factor as motivation. Estudiantes started the match very well, with a goal in the 11th minute. The game was quite divided, with both teams having some goal opportunities, and Huracan would equalize the result in the 64th minute. However, in the 82nd minute, Huracan would be reduced to 10 players. And the game was far from over. In the last moment of the match, Estudiantes would end up scoring the goal that would give them the 2-1 victory, in a fantastic acrobatic kick by Ascacibar.
Estudiantes will certainly try to take advantage of this moment for the next match, in a game that in itself no longer needs motivation. Estudiantes will certainly look for their 3rd victory in the championship to climb further in the standings to the places they are used to.
