Argentina wins in La Paz 15 years later
Argentina this Tuesday added the second victory in two games in the South American qualifiers for the 2022 football World Cup, by beating Bolivia 2-1, in the heights of La Paz, where they have not won since 2005.
In the Bolivian capital, at the 3640 meters altitude of the Hernando Siles Stadium, the formation of the home started better and took the lead, by Marcelo Moreno, in the 24th minute, but the albi-celeste team managed the turnaround.
Striker Lautaro Martínez was the figure, restoring equality, in an insistent play, over the break, in the 45th minute, and assisting substitute Joaquin Correa for the second goal of the outsiders, in the 79th.
In this way, the formation led by Lionel Messi and which had the Benfica player Otamendi in the center of the defense repeated the 2-1 triumph achieved in the 2006 World Cup race, curiously with the current coach Lionel Scaloni in the eleven.
After that meeting, on March 26, 2005, the two-time world champions, in 1978 and 1986, had been beaten 6-1 in 2009 (qualification for the 2010 World Cup), drawn 1-1 in 2013 (2014) and returned to yield, now 2-0, in 2017 (2018).
