COPA DE LA LIGA 2021
Rosario Central 3
Newell’s Old Boys 0
🏟️ Gigante de Arroyito, Rosario
Newell’s Old Boys suffered a painful defeat in the Clásico Rosarino on Sunday night.
Germán Burgos’ side found it hard to cope with Kily González’s Canallas, especially in attack and the home side were able to get in behind the Newell’s backline with ease. A first-half goal from Marco Ruben and two second-half goals from Nicolás Ferreyra and Luca Martínez Dupuy did the damage at the Arroyito.
Burgos has much to reflect on. He has made radical changes to the team every week since being appointed as Newell’s manager and his decision to persist with Maxi Rodríguez as a number 9 coupled with the selection of Juan Sforza, a central midfielder, in the Newell’s attack for the Clásico, was completely ineffective and left Newell’s fans confused and frustrated.
