Gymnastics 1-0 Independence Santa Fe:
Gimnasia defeated Independiente Santa Fe 1-0 in La Plata for the fourth date of Copa Sudamericana Group G and are excited to advance in the competition. The match was held at the Juan Carmelo Jerillo Stadium in El Bosque. Franco Torres’ agonizing goal gave victory to Lobo, who are alive and well and looking to stay with the division and go straight to the round of 16.
It was an emotional first half and the only heat at the end of the opening 45 minutes was the struggles that led to the ejection of Felipe Sanchez (gymnastics), who pushed an opponent and put his hand in his face and on Colombian Wilson. Morello, another very active in the fight.
There aren’t many ideas to break the lines and be uneven in the filling. The tie ended comfortably for the Colombians.
But a goal from Gimnasia came in the 92nd minute as Independiente Santa Fe took advantage of a poor start down the stretch and Franco Torres took advantage to score an agonizing goal that kept his side alive in the international competition.
Goyas led the way after scoring 8 points in a 1-0 win over Universitario. The Peruvian contingent was left as an escort with 7 units. Colombians are third, 4 points ahead of Gimnasia.
Argentina still have a chance to win the group. It should be noted that from this year only the first in each zone will go directly to the round of 16, and the second Copa Libertadores will play in a 16 tie with the third-placed teams.
Next up, on Thursday June 8, Gimnasia will visit Goias and host Independiente Santa Fe Universitario.

America MG 2-2 Security and Justice:
The battle of contenders in Group F takes place at the Raimundo Sampaio stadium in Belo Horizonte. Defense and Justice is second with six points and America MG is third with 4 points. The referee was Bolivian Ivo Mendez Chavez. Televisa Directive.
After 11 minutes, the locals took the lead after a cross from the right was brought down and passed to Martin Benitez, who fired an unstoppable left-footed shot past Ezequiel Anzine.
Then Falcon didn’t cross it and he had no idea to reach the tie. Although he took advantage of his opponent’s mistake, he allowed him to equalize. In the 28th minute, Alle, from the left side, looked to make a pass to the goalkeeper, but it failed and Gaston Togny headed in to make it 1-1.
The defense gained confidence and changed the course of the match, but Benitez reappeared at the end of the first half when, after 45 minutes, he sent in a perfect cross and Gonzalo Mastriani scored with a header to give the Brazilians the lead again.
El Halcón snapped its unbeaten streak after eight games when it visited Rosario Central last weekend. Internationally, however, he expects to finish first or second, just one point behind Colombia’s millionaire leader.
The locals, for their part, are coming off a good moment by stringing together two wins in a row (they beat Inter de Porto Alegre for the Brazilian Cup and Fortaleza in Serie A). Wagner Carmo Mancini’s men will need to get past Argentina’s line-up to set themselves up for the final.
