Copa Argentina: Mixed feelings as Rosario Central clinch 2018 title

Trophy -

The 2018 Copa argentina title was full of drama as Rosario Central could only manage to score a goal against their fellow Superliga side Gimnasia La Plata.

Rosario Central opened the goal scoring account in the 19 minute through Fernando Zampedri with an assist from Camacho. Rosario preserved their lead untill a 52 minute blunder that led to Gimnasia coming to level terms.

However the match failed to produce a goal till the game was concluded and as a result a penalty shootout was the only solution to determine the winner.

Rosario Central played everything they could within regulation time but they could not register a goal.

The penalty shootout was marred by mixed feelings as Gimnasia could’nt convert their spot kicks. On the other hand Rosario converted four spot kicks to earn themselves the countries ultimate crown.
