Sporting Cristal responded in time to complete the comeback against Cusco

At the Alberto Gallardo Stadium and on day 16 of the Liga 1 Apertura, Sporting Cristal responded in time to win 3–2 against Cusco.

In the first half, Los Celestes controlled 63% of ball possession and made only one shot less than the opponent (7-8), but it was Los Dorados who led at the break 2-0.

When barely five minutes had passed from the opening leg, Cristal’s Josue Estrada in the past complied with the harsh regulation of the former by receiving a remarkable assist from Felipe Rodríguez.

And at 12′, the men converted again under Pablo Pirano’s lead. In this case, after an error at the start of Jhilmar Lora, José Fajardo recovered the ball and gave the goal to Mauro da Luz, who put in a cold shoulder before the departure of Renato Solís.

In any case, the Riemen team turned out to play complementary with a different attitude and at 49′ they took the first step to take control of the game. Despite having the entire arc at his disposal, Alejandro Hohberg missed the first down, but the stick gave him a second chance and he didn’t miss it.

Then, on 59′, Hohberg put on his assistant suit and with a low cross he gifted the equalizer to Brenner Marlos, who only had to push the ball into the net. And on 71′, once again the Brazilian striker appealed to take advantage of a low cross from his goal-scoring nose, in this case courtesy of João Grimaldo

Tiago Nunes’ men kept the lead in the final stretch and thus reached 28 points, which is why they are now third in the table. Cusco, for its part, ranked fifth with 26 units.
