Miguel Celis rescued Caracas in extremis

The striker scored the only goal in the capital's victory over Mineros de Guayana

With a goal at minute 90, striker Miguel Celis gave Caracas an important victory by the minimum difference 1-0 over Mineros de Guayana, in the capital's struggle to get into the first places of the Futve League standings .

In the first minutes of the duels played at the Olympic stadium of the UCV, it was the "Rojos del Ávila" who jumped with greater intensity onto the field of play with a header from the Ecuadorian Denilson Ovando at minute 4. Then, the Beninese Sansom Akinyoola tried with a shot that grazed the goal defended by goalkeeper Jorge Graterol at 16'.

However, the Negriazules, who wore white during their visit to the capital, began to create dangerous occasions with striker Ángel Lezama and experienced Richard Blanco as their main executors, although Alain Baroja showed off his security under the three posts and lengthened the drought of the "Avioncito" that has never been able to overcome the fence of the reds with the uniform of Miners.

Lineup Changes

In the second half, both eleven began to look tired and made several changes, including the return of Nigerian Ade Oguns for the locals, after recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Despite this, the residents of the capital did not take advantage of the control of the ball and several attempts by Fereira and Akinyoola, who ended up being replaced by Miguel Celis.

Precisely, the player from Zulia ended up being the figure for those led by Caracas native Francesco Stifano after taking advantage of a center into the area by Eduardo Fereira at 90' to pierce the opposing nets. With the goal, the cousin of the former Caracas player, Richard Celis, reached three goals scored in the Venezuelan championship.

Caracas climbed to fifth place with 18 points as a result of four wins, six draws and two losses, while Mineros is in tenth place with 10 units and a record of four wins, two draws and six falls, in the absence of the clashes of this Weekend.
