Colon vs Belgrano
Competition: Argentina Superliga
Date: 30 November 2018
Kick-off: 23:00 CET
It feels as if someone… cursed Colón ta halftime of their game at Huracán, six weeks ago. They had won three games in a row, they had just beaten River Plate 1-0 at home, the first River loss since… ever, and they were leading 0-2. Five minutes into the second half, Huracán lost a player to a red card. In case you don’t remember how that game ended, Colón lost(!) 3-2, conceding three goals to a team playing with 10 men. They haven’t bounced back since then. They drew three times in the Superliga, they lost twice to Unión Sunchales in the Copa Santa Fe final, Eduardo Domínguez, their former coach, left, they failed to sign the coach they really wanted, Omar De Felippe, for the time being they are left with inexperienced Esteban Fuertes, and… time is passing. Last weekend, they were lucky to earn a draw at San Martín Tucumán. The hosts were better, Colón looked very poor. They are 16th in the Superliga table, on 15 points from 13 matches.
Belgrano took the lead from the penalty spot last weekend, when they hosted Atlético Tucumán, but the difference, quality-wise, between the two teams was all too obvious; final score, 1-3, a totally deserved Atlético Tucumán victory. As for Belgrano, they have now lost six of their last eight matches. They are 23rd in the Superliga table, on just 11 points from 13 games, and, most important of all, they are 23rd in the “promedio” table as well, the one in which all points from the last three seasons are taken into account. In other words, if the season were over today, Belgrano would be getting relegated.
