For its part, Ayacucho FC He had a difficult scenario: he had not won for four dates and was out of the qualification zone for an international tournament. Perhaps those details influenced so that a great round trip was played by date 13 of Phase 2.
And a key situation in the game occurred at minute 18. What happened? Hervé Kambou entered with everything against Sergio Barboza and looked at the red one. Two minutes later, the ‘Zorros’ pressed the accelerator and looked for the first with Jesús Mendieta. The winger took a strong shot from long distance and Salomón Libman controlled in two halves. Now, the ‘Gavilán’, although he was with one less man, did not stop looking for the rival goal.

This time he enabled Cristian Mejía, who lacked precision in the last touch. And before the first half is over, it hit Ayacucho FC. This time Minzum Quina took advantage of his passing game and scored.
In the complementary stage, everything indicated that at 53 ′ the tie was going to arrive for the Cajamarca team. Everything was born from the feet of Luis Trujillo, in a free kick. Then the ball was left to Blanco, who crossed for defender Nicolás Ortiz. His head butt came close. And in the middle of that round trip, the Ayacucho club scored the second. At 55 ‘Pablo Lavandeira enabled Leandro Sosa. The ’11’ did not forgive in the hand-to-hand with Libman.
And in the absence of 10 minutes for the comparison to complete, UTC he sought to discount with a center by Josué Estrada for Alexis Blanco. The header of the ‘9’ passed close to the goal of Maximiliano Cavallotti. Then Jesús Mendieta would look at the red for a strong entry against Estrada. But the marker would not move anymore. Ayacucho FC, after table dates, he smiled again. Above, he is already in the international tournament qualification zone.
