University and another Cup without celebrating: A decade without international success and more than 12 million dollars that escaped from their hands

Although it is accepted in the general balance of the cream team that this Libertadores came out to compete, without players at a high level it cost them on the international level in the year of their centenary. Yesterday he suffered it Christopher Gonzaleswho had a game to forget: he came on in the second half (56′) and was sent off in the 83rd minute. He still hasn’t appeared Second Portocarrerodespite playing in their homeland, and the presence of Martin Perez Guedes, the timer in the cream midfield. AND Diego Dorregaray He is not the natural goalscorer that was expected.

It was 2-0 in a match in which the creams were far from even discussing the score despite some intentions on the part of Edison Flores. It could have been worse if it weren’t for the fact that the VAR noticed two offsides and annulled two goals by the Ecuadorians.

The group finished with the Junior leader with 10 points, equal with Botafogo, who yesterday tied 0-0 with their places in the round of 16 already secured from the previous day. LDU followed with seven units and their move to the Sudamericana and

bad numbers

Thus, the first semester ends with bittersweet sensations in the year of its centenary. They won the local Apertura with great authority but at the international level they were left empty-handed right off the bat.

And the Libertadores has turned its back on them in their latest presentations.

FIGURES IN RED

Then, when it was his turn to play the previous phases, he was also unsuccessful since none of the four times he was able to reach the groups: of five direct confrontations he only won one, against Carabobo in Phase 1 of 2020, but then fell to Cerro Porteño .

The Cup, beyond sporting glory, also offers juicy prizes that allow the clubs to breathe and the ‘U’ is one of those that needs that income the most. In this Libertadores they could only add three million and 300 thousand dollars in prizes – in addition to what was collected at the box office.

By running out of international tournaments, the ‘U’ lost the chance to add the 1.25 million dollars as a prize for the round of 16 of the Libertadores or the 500 thousand dollars for reaching the playoffs of the Sudamericana.
