Xbox Division 1

04-07-2017

Six years since we last did battle on the 360 Berty and Mo reminisced about old times in the tunnel pre game. As was always the case with us this was a tight battle. Avispa created the early chances with Beto making a fine early save before Chahecouhe spurned another great chance and Kolarov blazed over after Willy V got booked for a bone crunching tackle. The deadlock was broken, undeservedly just before the break when Ōsako was put through and  he finished well.

Newells had the better of the second half and Ōsako doubled his tally with a fine finish after 56mins. Joselu cane clise for the visitors but fine defending maintained the clean sheet. Derlis Gonzalez, on for the tiring Ōsako raced away in the dying minutes and hit the post with a great chance. Avispa created more chances than the home side but just could not finish.
