The Venezuelan team Pumas Sport stumbled in its debut in the CONEMBOL Libertadores Futsal Femenina 2023. The girls fell to the host Exa Ytasy 5-1.
Mariangela Magdaleno took paint off the post with a tremendous right kick. For passages of the contest, she taught good Futsal with high pressure, starting from 3 and pressing the rival's start. However, it was Rosa Aquino who sent a left-footed shot to the post for an error at the start.
Pumas tried again and again, but Exa Ytasy's goal was right. Our goalkeeper, Eliarsi Rivas, was also doing his homework, saving the rival's scoring chances. Until, with 43 seconds remaining, the locals took the opportunity to send a shot between the legs of Génesis Espinoza and the 1-0 when pumas created more dangerous chances. Mara Talavera, was the author of the
target that sent the fight 1-0 at rest.
In the second leg of the match, at 5', it was Rosa Aquino who, in a combination with Talavera, managed to get away with the desperate exit of Rivas in the goal
Venezuelan and left-footed increased the difference 2-0.
A minute later, Talavera took the opportunity to cross the left-footed kick into goalkeeper Rivas's goal, making it 3-0 on the digital score, giving the sensation of
Unfair because of the way Pumas was playing.
With 13 minutes left to play, teacher Thaina Laroche sent Rivas to do the "power play" in search of the discount. 8 minutes from the end, Francis Rodríguez sent the ball out, one-on-one against the Paraguayan goalkeeper when he had everything available to discount.
Two minutes later, Alexandra Pinillos tried it from medium distance, passing near the left post of the Guaraní fence. The discount was getting closer.
After a center from Mendoza, it was Mariangela Magdaleno who discounted. A 3 – 1 that gave rise to go for the comeback. This goal is the first in the history of the
club in international competition. However, when the pumas believed it most, looking for 3-2, Talavera found himself with his third personal goal, after an assist from Aquino for 4-1.
Two minutes from the end, a handball by Alexandra Pinillos resulted in a penalty that, with her expulsion for a double yellow, will miss the next game. Tamara Aquino beat Rivas from the penalty spot. 5-1.
The Venezuelans will have the task of adding three against Marte from Peru, who comes from thrashing Santo Domingo 7-2.
