Alianza Lima suffers shock defeat in Huaraz against Sport Rosario

A n efficient performance by Huaraz-based club Sport Rosario saw the Auriazules overcome a lacklustre Alianza Lima 3-2 at Rosas Pampa Stadium. The opening game of the Apertura Tournament was meant to forget the disastrous Copa Libertadores campaign where Alianza Lima only managed to score one goal, suffered five defeats and ended their group phase with a minus 12 goal difference. However, Los Íntimos de La Victoria demonstrated no ability to generate offensive plays with as little as only three direct shots on goal), little aggression in defensive marking and it resulted in the fifth straight defeat and the eighth consecutive failure away from home.

Disaster struck in the 23rd minute when defender Rinaldo Cruzado heard the referee´s whistle after touching the ball with his hand. Tulio Enrique Etchemaite (Sport Rosario) converted the spot kick with a right footed shot to the high centre of the goal. Twelve minutes after the opening goal, Carlos Olascuaga (Sport Rosario) started a run from the left side of the pitch to reach the box, going past two Lima players and hit the back of the net with a slightly deflected right footed shot to the top left corner.

A corner given away by Erick Rossi in the 34th minute gave Alianza Lima a glimmer of hope as Aldair Fuentes (Alianza Lima) left footed shot from very close range to the bottom right corner hit the target. In the 62nd minute Uruguayan midfielder Pablo Maximiliano Lemos Merladett received a direct red card for a wild challenge on the right side of the midfield. Eight minutes later Sport Rosario sealed their victory as a cross by Paulo Goyoneche found the head of Tulio Enrique Etchemaite who scored his second goal of the evening. Alejandro Hohberg´s scored a penalty with a right footed shot to the bottom right corner three minutes from stopwatch time but the Blanquiazules would never become close to the steal a point in Huaraz. While the Alianza fans were screaming for the head of their manager Pablo Javier Bengoechea Dutra, Sport Rosario manager Fernando Nogara waved to the Huaraz crowed, clearly happy with his first win over giants Alianza Lima.

Earlier matches played between Sport Rosario during the Copa Verano ended in 1-1 in Huaraz and Alianza Lima won 3-1 in La Victoria. Etchemaite has been in lethal form the past 18 months scoring 11 goals in 11 matches for Gibraltar giants Lincoln F.C. and has now scored nine goals in 13 matches for Sport Rosario.
