Universitario vs Cantolao (2-2) match recap: Another late comeback
by J.P. Devetori
In what I thought was another nightmare match for Universitario, the Crema sparked another late comeback to tie the game and leave with another point. After Cantolao scored 2 goals in the first 48 minutes of the match, everything looked impossible for a chance for the U to draw. The 2 Cantolao goals resulted with terrible defensive coverage which is the same problem for weeks now and it must be improved. The defense is the reason why we keep having 2-2, 1-1 results in what should’ve been 2-0 and 1-0 wins for us.
It was finally in minute 84 when Alex Valera delivered another pure asisst to Enzo Gutierrez to score the first goal for the Crema. The U kept rallying and rallying to tie the game until the 7th minute during stoppage time when Luis Urruti scored the dagger to tie the game.
The comeback was just like the comeback we had vs Sporting Cristal and like last week when during stoppage time we had great scoring chances vs Sport Boys but we were short. The problem like every match is the defense and hopefully management addresses it when we return from international break.
