Belgrano fostered their chances of a direct promotion after recording an unlikely win against Almagro. Despite Belgrano being the dominant force in the opening minutes, they were second best throughout the match. Almagro were strong on the ball and created several chances but were squandered one after another. Belgrano, in the meantime, resorted to counterattacking; their only two chances in the first half came that way. The half closed and the draw sounded about right since both teams had opportunities to open the score. A very determined Almagro side came out for the second half while Belgrano inexplicably gave up their attacking intentions. Matters took a turn for the worse when Turus received his second yellow and left the team down to ten men. Belgrano then decided to sit back and try to weather the storm. The away team frustrated Almagro time after time and were lucky to get a free kick in the dying moments. Suarez delivered a perfect cross that man-of-the-match Lollo headed into the net showing great anticipation. Almagro were left ruing their missed chances and they certainly didn't deserve to lose but Belgrano wanted none of it. They had won an important game and the players were ecstatic. So are we fans.
