Universitario Drew 0-0 against Cienciano and Could Not Regain the Lead in the Apertura of League 1

Listen to this article

Universitario de Deportes could not achieve the victory it needed and lost the first option for the title of the Apertura Tournament of League 1 after a goalless draw against Cienciano in Cusco”.

Fabián Bustos’ team played a great game at the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, but suffered various blows that ended up dooming their chances.

Rodrigo Ureña was absent at the last minute due to a viral process, so Jorge Murugarra replaced him in the starting eleven. Martín Pérez Guedes, one of the best midfielders, was injured in the first half and the student’s offensive potential decreased.

Universitario Drew 0-0 against Cienciano: Match Highlights

Universitario did not appear solid in defense, but the Argentine coach knew how to get the offensive changes right and his team generated different chances in the complement.

However, the ‘U’ paid dearly for their lack of aim and in the end they were unable to add the three points that would have helped them regain the top spot in the Apertura.

In stoppage time, Carlos Garcés dropped into the area after a slight push from Matías Di Benedetto and it seemed that a fatal penalty was coming against the student team, but the VAR considered that it was not a foul worthy of the maximum penalty.

What’s coming for the ‘U’.

On the last date, Universitario (2nd with 37, +21) needs to beat Los Chankas in case Sporting Cristal (1st with 37, +23) beat Comerciantes Unidos as a visitor. In case there is a tie or celestial defeat in Cajabamba, the victory will be enough to be crowned in the Apertura of League 1.
