Match review: Sport Rosario (1 – 1) Universidad San Martin

B oth clubs will be disappointed with a draw after an exciting game at the Estadio Rosas Pampa, played out in front of a 5000 strong crowd and a pocket of 50 or so Huaraz ultras who never sat down and never stopped singing.

Sport Rosario deservedly took the league just before half time, with star striker Posito expertly dispatching a well-earned penalty for his 10th goal of the season. Sport Rosario had looked the more likely for the first 45 minutes, with the rapid Adrianzen always looking to take on Club Deportivo Universidad de San Martín de Porres’s full back Arana, who looked out of his depth. The home team were threatened only by a snapshot from Succar, well saved by Duarte, and by a comical dive in the box by San Martin’s Arakaki, which the referee correctly over looked.

After a cagey first half, the visitors, from Callao, having lost their first three games of the season’s 3rd quarter, started showing some intent. They were rewarded for their efforts with a finely taken goal from 25 yards by Succar, also registering his tenth of the season. In the absence of any away fans, there was a silence that had me wondering whether a goal had been scored at all.

The game really opened up in the last 15 minutes, with both teams missing excellent chances. Posito had an excellent chance to win the match with a header from 3 yards that bounced into the ground and over the frame of the goal. San Martin responded with an excellent chance of their own, Succar sending a header just wide. With both teams now going for the win, the match was end to end, and the last chance of the match fell to Sport Rosario’s Jasaui, who sent an outrageously ambitious bicycle kick high into the stands. In the dying moments the home team found themselves 3 on 2 on the counter attack before the referee blew the final whistle, inciting unrepeatable obscenities from the crowd.

Both teams are struggling this season, and both look very unlikely to qualify for the Cope Libertadores. Sport Rosario looked the more likely for large parts of this game, and they will come away wondering what happened in the second half. A win would’ve done a world of good in advance of their trip next Sunday to table-toppers Real Garcilaso, who are yet to lose this quarter.

Man of the Match: Adrienzen looked lethal on the right wing, and was at the heart of all of Sport Rosario’s best moves.
