Sporting Cristal visited the green of Inca Garcilaso de La Vega and broke the goal of Cienciano, taking a 1-0 victory at home thanks to a powerful shot by Irven Ávila.
About 64 minutes, the ‘Cholito’ was sent to the field, instead of Christopher Olivares, who had suffered great physical wear. The offensive zone of the Rimense club was renewed and the rest of the team began to advance a few meters with the firm intention of surprising the defensive sector of the Cusco squad.
And at 67 ‘, the opportunity came that Sporting Cristal had worked for. Leandro Sosa received the ball down the right wing, stuck to the sideline, hooked into his marker and made a short diagonal. The Uruguayan midfielder did not plan to face the goal, but rather waited for the exact moment to make a cross.
After finding the right space, the former Ayacucho FC soccer player sent the ball to the edge of the small area, where Irven Ávila was precisely. The striker got between two Cienciano defenders and headed insurprising goalkeeper Miguel Vargas, who remained static on the line.
The celebrations did not wait and the Sporting Cristal squad greeted ‘Cholito’, while the fans of the club present at the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega Stadium in Cusco accompanied with songs.
Those led by Roberto Mosquera added 18 points and climb to seventh position, while Cienciano remains the leader with 21 units.
