With the aim of repeating what was done in 1981 and 2015. Melgar defeated Sporting Cristal 2-0 this Sunday in the second leg of the League 1 semifinal and, after also winning the first leg, he got the ticket to dispute this year’s national title against Alianza Lima. After that, Deneumostier gave statements to GOLPERU.
“I am very happy with the objective achieved. The objective of the team was to go out and look for the game, we didn’t come to throw ourselves back, but they definitely made it a bit difficult for us, they went out to look for it, but happy with the effort of my teammates and with how we faced the game from the start to the end ”, Alec Deneumostier said.
“There is going to be very little training and more than anything it is a recovery issue, we are the team that has played the most games in the year approximately fifty-something unlike the other teams that have played a maximum of 40, but they are not excuses for any”, added the footballer regarding the intense season they faced.
Finally, the Peruvian player considered that “The group is united, we have a high quality of players and a wide squad, and we are going to have a great game on Wednesday and from there on Saturday”.
The team led by the Argentine Pablo Lavallén, will face Alianza Lima, champion of the Clausura Tournament, in the final, on Wednesday in Arequipa and the rematch on Saturday in Lima.
It should be noted that the Arequipa club had won the Opening Tournament and the right to go directly to the final, but Cristal surpassed them in accumulated points in both tournaments, so they had to play a semifinal.
