Pre-season matches - Reports

Belgrano played the first two matches programmed for the pre-season in the Copa Ciudad de Cordoba. Altough these are only pre-season matches, there were some interesting things to look forward to. The first match saw Belgrano go down to Velez Sarfield by 3-0. Velez dictated play and were more efficient in front of the goal but the scoreline was not a reflection of the match. Both teams created many scoring chances and the match was entertaining. Balvorin and Mauro Zarate (2) were the goalscorers. The second match pinned Belgrano against the last champion, Estudiantes de La Plata. There were two debuts for Belgrano, Chelo Delgado and Maldonado, and it was the first match coached by Primo. The match ended 1-1 and it was the most fitting result. Belgrano played a good match until the last 20 minutes where there were evident signs of tiredness. Estudiantes played a solid match and had several good chances in the second half cleared by our goallie Montoya. Soriano scored for Belgrano and Pavone gave Estudiantes the leveller from the spot kick. Belgrano had a good test against two quality opponents and there are promising signs of a very competitive Belgrano team in the making. Check out the clips below with the best moments of each match.
