The team from Córdoba achieved 10 points and remains firmly in first place. Sao Paulo’s victory over Cobresal condemned the elimination of the Idol.

Barcelona has the opportunity to finish in third place and compete to qualify for the CONMEBOL Sudamericana play-offs.

Talleres scored in the 13th and 25th minutes to secure the match. Barcelona responded in the second half and made some important plays, but it wasn’t until the 61st minute that they scored thanks to Joao Rojas’ move. A well-known Ecuadorian footballer, Gustavo Bou, made it 3-1 in the 90+4 minute.

It is the second defeat that Barcelona suffer in these Libertadores, before they lost 2-0 to Sao Paulo in Guayaquil.

In this Wednesday’s game, the team failed in all blocks. Goalkeeper Javier Burrai was far from his best performance, with many doubts and late reactions.

In defense, the line of three defenders was complicated in its marking and gave freedom to the rival attackers. Exactly, Lucas Sosa did not go to mark Matías Catalán, who scored the first goal.

The midfield lacked branding and the attack no longer delivered. Damián Díaz and Joao Rojas, with ups and downs. Due to his lack of collective work, Adonis Preciado did not get any goals.

Preciado returned to play as a forward, a position that is not his. Coach Ariel Halan hopes for a full recovery of Francisco Fydriszewski. His natural replacements are Allen Obando and Djorkaeff Reasco, who did not travel to Argentina.

Barcelona still has to play against Sao Paulo in Brazil and will receive Cobresal in Guayaquil, a team with which it could define third place, which gives it a place in the play-off of the CONMEBOL Sudamericana.
