Gimnasia y Esgrima de La Plata beat their namesake Jujuy by 7 to 5
It marks 20 years of one of the most unusual development matches in 87 years of professional football in Argentina : at the Juan Carmelo Zerillo stadium in Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata the home team beat 7-5 to Gimnasia y Esgrima de Jujuy .
In fact, on Monday 22 March 1999, for the Clausura Tournament organized by the AFA , the tennis score of 7-5 was consumed.
Wounded in honor by the 5-0 that came from receiving at the hands of Union , led by Carlos Timoteo Griguol the platense team was determined to give its audience a performance capable of mitigating the impact of the stumbling they had suffered in Santa Fe .
And everything seemed on the way to a night safe from storms, by the way, since at 20 minutes he won 4-0 with two conversions from Facundo Sava, Mariano Messera, Sebastián Romero and Gustavo Reggi .
However, the jujeños scored two goals in equal amount of minutes, through Mario Lobo and Jairo Morales Santos and one near the end, Alejandro González , who with the second already on Messera's account closed the first half with 5-3 in favor of the locals.
Shortly after starting the second half the debutante Carmelo Ruscitto returned to score for the norteños, immediately Sava put the 6-4 and behind the jujeño Lobo the 6-5.
This came to a dramatic end, with the jujeños openly thrown into the attack and Griguol on his limescale line without concealing a growing nuisance.
Within 40 minutes of the second half Darío Cavallo rejected the ball in the Gimnasia area, his teammate Messera took advantage of a bad calculation of a defender and after avoiding the goalkeeper Hernán Castellano sealed the 7-5 to open fence.
A year later Gimnasia would be the protagonist of another result out of catalog, also in El Bosque , but this case against Colón de Santa Fe and with a final draw of 6-6.
La Plata was also the scene of the first 7-5 recorded by Argentine football: on May 27, 1945, on the Estudiantes field today in full remodeling, the local team won Vélez Sársfield .
Until the 30 minutes of the second half Estudiantes won by 5-2 but with the five goals converted in the last quarter of an hour he finished 7-5.
That season, that of the 1945 championship, abounded in infrequent results, including Racing 4-Atlanta 4; Newell's 8-Chacarita 0; Atlanta 7-Gimnasia 3; Velez 8-Independent 0; Velez 6-Lanús 4 and Hurricane 10-Rosario Central 4.
