Belgrano 0 - Gimnasia de Jujuy 1

Belgrano were unlucky to go away empty handed against Gimnasia de Jujuy last Sunday at the Olimpico de Cordoba. The match resulted as was expected with Belgrano taking the initiative and Gimnasia de Jujuy defending and waiting for the counter. Belgrano created some good chances in the first half but were denied an opening goal mostly due to poor finishing. Only in the last 10 minutes of the half, did Gimnasia attempt to put some more men in attack but they didn't cause much troubles for the Belgrano back four. The second half was a similar story with Belgrano trying to break the deadlock with more guts and passion than ideas. Another succesion of chances came an go for Belgrano who found an inspired Gimnasia goalkeeper. Belgrano introduced some changes only for nothing really to change and the game seemed heading for a goalless draw. But Gimnasia got more than what they deserved when in an isolated counterattack Dario Gandin scored a nice goal after a perfectly timed move. Belgrano then tried to avoid the defeat by going forward but lacked the cutting-edge you need to win matches at this level. The match was followed by a 25.000-strong crowd. Belrano are now lying perilously close to the relegation zone and the team should do very well in the last four matches in order to go confident into the summer break. Photo Source: Portal Celeste
