A good draw against the champions

In one of the scheduled friendlies, Belgrano faced Apertura champions Lanus earlier today. The teams never got going and the match ended in a goalless draw. Both Lanus and Belgrano played most of their main players. Although there were plenty of imprecisions and missed passes, each team managed to create a few scoring chances. Matias Suarez and Ezequiel Arriola were both denied by the Lanus keeper, while Sand and Acosta were very close to opening the score for the Apertura winners. Belgrano played their main squad including Matias Suarez, who originally wasn't going to take part due to a muscle strain.

It was a friendly for sure but it is certainly encouraging for us to snatch a draw against one of the best teams in Argentina. Meanwhile, Belgrano continue with their pre-season activity and will also face Huracan and Alvarado as part of their preparation. In other news, Belgrano are still looking into the possibility of signing a defensive midfielder to add some much-needed depth to the team.

Hey Piratakiwi, how are u doing man? Thanks for dropping by the blog and leaving the comment. I have been thinking for a while to have some contributors to the blog; my brother used to help me for a while. I'll keep you posted anyway. I may also get in touch since I wanted to "interview" some of the pirates living abroad to tell experiences, how they feel about our team and what they miss the most. And for sure you are one of the most famous!

Keep in touch man.

Gracias por visitar y por el comentario. Me alegro que algo se entienda, lamentablemente los servicios de traduccion de Google y Babel dejan bastante que desear asi que solo los recomiendo para casos muy extremos. Desde luego que son bienvenidos todos los comments en castellano e ingles. Gracias de nuevo.
