For the third date of group G of the Copa Libertadores, Olimpia could barely add a tie today in the Defensores del Chaco against Colón de Santa Fe (0-0), with which they remain without a win and in last place in the zone. The Argentine cast had two goals annulled for ‘offside’ that should have gone up on the scoreboard.
Despite the blank result, the match was full of dangerous situations, some for Olimpia and most of them for Colón. However, the effectiveness at the time of the definition was absent on the night of Saxony.
Gastón Olveira, with great saves, saved the Dean who also had opportunities that he did not know how to take advantage of either due to lack of precision or good interventions by goalkeeper ‘sabalero’ Ignacio Chicco.
But the main incidents occurred in the 39th and 57th minutes, when the goals converted by Christian Bernardi and Eric Meza, respectively, were annulled by ‘offside’. However, both situations should have gone up on the scoreboard as there were no such lead positions.
The concrete thing is that the Franjeado, with today’s equality, accumulates only 2 points and remains in last place in group G, complicating its chances of qualifying for the round of 16.
Colón, meanwhile, is in second place in the zone with 4 units, 3 points below the leader Cerro Porteño.
