Tolima 1, Junior 0: too much mediocrity

Insolent Failure. He was a junior against Tolimus. Lazy, dark, inert, a team, without a script, without soul, and full of mistakes, which hindered his fans, who expected much more from the group of players who make the most expensive salary in the country.

The most expensive is not necessarily the best and it was shown again with the 1-0 defeat against the ‘Pijaos’ which leaves the ‘Sharks’ out of the group stage of the Copa Sudamericana, and they are there without any prizes. they decided and this help to pay the high salary of the figures of the team (900 thousand dollars plus 100 thousand for each game of the road were thrown). There is no need to decorate a large yard, as the boundaries of the yard that time.

A goal by Junior Hernández, 7 minutes into the game, was enough to overcome the rojiblanco team with many unformed, rustic, passive, lethargic, unfocused pedicels and without rebellion, to rescue the team in the claws. They also burned the ball in the last minutes to seek an equalizer with Tolima after the camp. Only John Fernando of Conception dared to ask for the ball and the game was endangered. Others, in agony, did the easy thing and carried it to the next partner, often without accuracy and in ridiculous actions.

Junior had nearly 15 days of useless preparation for this game. Tolima dominated him and submitted the whistle from the start. In a quite physical and intense game, the locals overwhelmed them led by Arturo Reyes in the 25th minute, who could not find the ball.

It seemed that they would quickly open the gates of the army, and so it was. Junior Hernández, who wanted to enter and go on the left wing, did a good job with an accurate shot that Carlos Sierra came late and was too lukewarm to avoid it.

Impossible for Viera because of his position and power. A huge project gave him relief and more convenient location. The second was also in an incomprehensible vibration from Iván Scarpeta against Brayan Gil, and Viera was interested in making timely improvements.

Without the control of the group in a troubled approach, not being able to recover the coolness and match the intensity from the rival, the coaching staff resigned the plan A and sent two substitutions on the field: ‘Cariaco’ González for Luis Sandoval, who He contributed nothing at all, and Didier Moreno for Jhon Vélez, who was perhaps sacrificed for inexperience, because he did not crackle as much as ‘El Chino’.

Junior managed to remove the “Pijaos” treatment with changes. At least they no longer played alone in Viera, and John Fernando Quintero, with the help of Didier and Cariaco, began to appear more, although they did not find an echo in Carlos Bacca, who is still absent, and the rest. of the players, who were still immersed in the sea by negligence.

The army was thrown off the yoke, but it lacked the offensive development, clarity and momentum.

In the second period, Hernán Torres also kept the students at bay, who gave themselves more to protect their advantage. But the lack of cohesion, engagement and quality continues. ‘Juanfer’ has many things, but the swallow does not make summer. Looks like Juan Hernández in his first season as a rojiblanco. They called him ‘Pedro Navaja’: ‘look to one side, look to the other … and who does not see’.

Albornoz, Sierra and Cariaco, who also gave him the will and injustices, had to tie well, but Cuesta and Hernández, saving the Venezuelan shot from the line, drowned Junior’s path in mediocrity.
