Quilmes 2 - Belgrano 3

Belgrano fought their way to a much-needed victory against Quilmes, El Cervecero. The game started very lively and two goals came within the first five minutes. The home side got their noses in front after Bustos Montoya scored from a questionable position. Indeed the linesman had his flag up but the referee confirmed the goal. Belgrano were able to draw level shortly after when Bolatti headed a cross past the Quilmes goal. After the emotions, the initial pace reccedeed and the match became hotly contested in the midfield with both sides creating a few good chances. If Quilmes were keeping the ball it was Belgrano who were looking dangerous in the counter. And it was Belgrano who had the half-time lead after Ezequiel Arriola capitalized on some sloppy defending by Quilmes. And it could have even been worse for Quilmes had Cervera not missed a sitter at the end of the half. The match was open and Quilmes went out all guns blazing in the second half. It was a bit of surprise then when Paolo Frangipane scored the third for Belgrano and that seemed to put the game away. However, it looked like Quilmes could score at any minute and they finally found a glimmer of hope after Diego Torres narrowed the losing margin. With the score 3-2 for Belgrano, Quilmes tried hard to find the leveller without success and this was mainly due to the monumental performance of our keeper, German Montoya. Belgrano celebrated a great victory against a direct rival in the relegation battle and they now look forward to facing Gimnasia de Jujuy at the Olimpico de Cordoba.
