A very key month in the context of the final stage, we had to play 8 games in all comps this month so the strength in depth in the squad will determine the success we achieve. The league results was a success I would say, as we was unbeaten in the league picking up 3 victories and 2 draws. Another very good positive is the defending this month, as we also picked up 3 clean sheets out of the 5 matches including beating Independiente 2-0 and then Atletico Rafaela 4-0. River are know where near as strong as they was a few years back but every game against River is tough so to be 2 nil down and to gain a draw in the second half is a great result. Brian Moyano scored 2 more goals in the 3-0 victory over Gimnasia before closing out the month with a disappointing draw against Tigre with our goal coming in the first minute.
We sit in 1st place in the final stage, with 6 wins and 3 draws. We are 3 points clear of 2nd place Boca and 4 clear of River in 3rd but they do have a game in hand.
We had the 6th round of the cup also this month, and it was a game we should have cruised through against a poor Colon side. We really struggled after conceding an early goal, which meant in the second half we left ourself open at the back as we pushed for the equaliser. Luckily enough we scored just after half-time from a corner and went on to win the game in a dramatic 9-8 penalty shoot-out victory to set up a 7th round match against Non-League opposition.
The long month continues, as we also played in 2 Copa Libertadores matches. We had to play Alianza and Mexican Champions Monterrey this month. The match against Alianza should have been very comfortable and it was really but we shouldn't have conceded 2. We had 5 different scorers including a screamer from Pagella. The game against Monterrey was going to be tough and a win would have put us in a very good position to qualify and we did win, 3-1 the score in Mexico, including a first half brace from Vazquez.
We sit top of the group, but Santos and Monterrey both have 6 points also so it is very close and any of the 3 can qualify.
