Juan Cazares’ goal was enough for ‘Rojo’ to take the 1-0 victory
He thus advances to the round of 16 of the Cup, where he will meet Vélez
Independiente defeated Atlético Tucumán 1-0 to access the round of 16 of the Argentine Cup, thanks to a solitary goal by Ecuadorian Juan Cazares, while Nicolás Thaller was expelled from the losing team.
In a match played at the 23 de Agosto stadium in San Salvador de Jujuy, Rojo won by the minimum against Dean from Tucuman and thus entered the next instance of the federal competition where he will face Vélez Sarsfield. In this way, a new week of Copa Argentina commitments was completed, which on Wednesday saw Patronato win on penalties against Colón (3-2 after equalizing 1-1 in 90 minutes) and Talleres de Córdoba (4-3 after goalless draw in regular time). There are already seven qualified for the round of 16 of the tournament with the already defined crossing of Boca Juniors against Agropecuario de Carlos Casares and three others who await a rival: Gimnasia y Esgrima de Jujuy and the aforementioned Talleres de Córdoba and Patronato de Paraná.
Next week Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata will face Flandria, while another eight duels are expected to be scheduled: Rosario Central-Quilmes, Aldosivi-Newell’s Old Boys, Banfield-Unión, Lanús-Godoy Cruz, Belgrano-Estudiantes de La Plata, Argentinos Juniors-Defense and Justice, and Barracas Central-River Plate.
The winner of this Copa Argentina will achieve their direct passport to the Copa Libertadores 2023 and will play the Argentine Super Cup against the winner of the Champions Trophy.
