Belgrano 1 - 0 Chacarita

Belgrano opened their home fixture in the best possible way by outplaying Chacarita Juniors and beating them by one goal to nil. Expectations were high and the fans wanted to see a good display by Belgrano. The players didn't disappoint as they started well controlling the ball in the midfield aided by Lux and Pietravallo. But it was soon clear that Suarez was not seeing enough of the ball and so chances were few and far between. Chacarita Juniors? Nil. With the defence and midfield doing well, all we needed was an extra man upfront. Ferraro decided to replace Lux with Gigli to aid his team's efforts. The gamble paid off as Gigli seemed to cause a lot more troubles to the Chacarita defense. Still, it was 0-0. The deserved goal came in the 80th minute after a perfect cross by Gigli which was headed into the net by our fast-rising star, Matias Suarez. Delirium in the stands, relief for the players and Ferraro. Chacarita could have levelled but Olave made two good saves leaving the score 1-0. Belgrano celebrated a deserved victory and their fans were more than happy with the performance. In fact, Belgrano should have won it by a larger difference.
