Highlights: Newell’s 0-1 Claypole

Newell’s Old Boys suffered an embarrassing defeat in San Nicolás on Wednesday night, going out of the Copa Argentina to Primera C side Claypole.

Gabriel Heinze started with a mainly second-string side but did introduce a number of first-team players after conceding early in the second half when Leonel Llodrá followed up the rebound of his own fierce shot that had come off the upright.

Newell’s dominated possession throughout but couldn’t make the breakthrough against a hardworking Claypole team that put all of their resources into defending their lead.

Guillermo Ortíz came closest for Newell’s in the first-half but his close-range diving header was badly directed while Cristian Ferreira hit the bar in injury-time as Newell’s tried desperately to claw back a goal.

The shock result means Newell’s are out of the Copa Argentina after just one match and all focus will now be on the league campaign as well as the club’s participation on the continent in this season’s Copa Sudamericana.
