Chances came from both sides to score and either to increase the lead or to get on the scoreboard. It wasn’t until a cross from Pablo Barrera in the dying minutes of the first half that the Paraguayan Carlos Gonzalez would capitalize on increasing the Auriazul lead.
The Argentine Juan Dinenno came on to the pitch as a substitute and quickly made an impact. Making it’s way past the San Luis keeper, his goal came less than five minutes since coming on to increase the home side’s lead even more. This goal would become Dinenno’s first goal for Pumas since his arrival at the club. Carlos Gonzalez would score his second of the game in the 75th minute of the game to make the final score 4-0.
