Students from Rio Cuarto surprised tonight Atletico Tucuman after beating him 3 to 1 and eliminating him from the Argentine Cupin a deputy match at the Brigadier Estanislao López de Colón stadium in Santa Fe, for the 32nd final.
The emotions all came in the second half, since the “Dean” prevailed with a goal from Ramiro Ruíz Rodríguez, at 11 minutes, but the Cordoba team turned it around through Renzo Reynaga, at 28 and 35, and Guillermo Villalba, at 45.
In this way, Estudiantes de Río Cuarto advanced to the round of 16 of the Argentine Cup, an instance in which they will face the winner of the match between Banfield and Argentino de Merlo.
The Tucumán team was more in the first half, with several approaches but that, due to lack of aim or deviations in defenders, could not materialize to go to rest with a goal in favor.
Estudiantes, for their part, had the ball, although it was difficult for them to generate play in the middle of the field.
Those who play in the Professional League came out determined, with a Cristian Menéndez who became the driver, and in 10 minutes of the complement he scored 1-0 at the hands of Ruíz Rodríguez.
However, Reynaga put the tie with a Chilean, after a header from Gonzalo Maffini, and when those from Córdoba were getting closer and closer to the goal of the Tucuman team.
The “Celeste” from Río Cuarto, who plays in the First National, was much more after the tie and did not stay with the parity but went looking for it: with a great pass between the lines by Fernando Belluschi, Reynaga once again put the 2nd 1 to turn the match around.
With a blunder from the Atlético Tucumán defense, Mauro Valiente faced from the left and sent a cross for Villalba to arrive in the middle of the area for the final 3-1.
