In a day of heart attack, Carlos Stein achieved permanence in Liga 1 Movistar. Daniel Valderrama’s team drew (1-1) with UTC at the Monumental Stadium and, after the results of Alianza Lima and Atlético Grau, will remain in the highest category.
As expected, the start was played with a lot of nerves, mainly from Carlos Stein’s field. UTC, who did not fight for anything but who made his usual headlines, had the first with a ‘scissors’ from Guevgeozián that went over the arch. UTC was much better on the court and brought their dominance to the scoreboard. At 32 ‘, Trovento took advantage of a rebound in the area left by goalkeeper Grados after a good save and sent it inside.
Before halftime and knowing that he needed to win to stay in the First Division, Carlos Stein cheered up a bit and tied the duel. The Argentine Facundo Parra, in one of the few interventions he had at the start, stepped on the rival area and nailed it at the angle. A great goal that came with a tribute to Diego Armando Maradona.
The second half was all from UTC. Franco Navarro’s ordered team was much closer to the second goal, but Carlos Stein, very aware of what was happening with Alianza Lima and Atlético Grau, protected himself and defended equality. Everything changed when on the Stein bench they found out about Grau’s goal against Alianza Universidad at VIDENA.
The Piura annotation forced Stein to seek victory to stay in First. So it was. Daniel Valderrama’s team was a little more aggressive, but it did not create much danger in Cajamarca’s field. The tranquility returned in the Carlist club with the Alianza Universidad draw.
Knowing the defeat of Alianza and the Piura draw, Carlos Stein did not despair and kept the draw that allows him to stay in League 1 Movistar. Remember that Carlos Stein finished the season with 27 points, leaving Alianza Lima, Atlético Grau and Deportivo Llacuabamba in the relegation zone.
