Fluminence made a beautiful campaign for the game on Wednesday. The club set a large screen on the lawn of Orange and received the response from the fans. More than 3,000 tricolor fans come to join the duel.
Better, Yens was beaten by Yony González
In spite of playing off home, Fluminence preserved the organization and was higher than the opponent. With a ball touch and a powerful mark to recover the ball, Tricolor did not take long to open the scoring. Marcos Paulo stole in the offensive field and fired Yony González. The Colombian dominated and touched the exit of Dawson: 1-0 at 16 min.
Gargano gets the yellow card after VAR review by elbow
Lost in the field, the Penran was running a lot, but without objectivity. What was bad could have been worse. In split with Daniel, Gargano elbows the face of tricolor. The referee pointed out these cases, but was called by the VAR, which suggested the expulsion from the Uruguayan. Arnaldo Samaniego has submitted the bid and decided only for the punishment of the yellow card for irritation of the players.
Muriel shines in debut
Interestingly, Peñarol decided to do everything they didn't do in the last minute. In less than five minutes, Uruguayans made a real flash and almost scored twice. Unfortunately, Muriel, who made his debut for fluminence, made two great saves and avoided a draw. The gala performance remained in the second half and the goalkeeper is collecting very high quality interventions.
Yony benefits the goalkeeper failure and extends to flu
Peñarol has a completely different stand in the second half and pressed the fluency for a draw. Muriel did his best and liked Tricolor victory. In 25 minutes, Daniel found a spectacular pass for Yony González, who used all his speed to get to the ball. Davson tried to arrive earlier, but miscalculated and got in the way. Best for Ligerinho who played the goalkeeper to make it 2-0.
Peñarol is finally cashing
Similarly, Peñarol finally managed to get Muriel. In a right-sided cross ball, Gastón Rodríguez anticipated the flame-retardant defender and hit firmly to extend the net: 1 to 2.
