Junior from Barranquilla lost again and is now last in the Betplay League

This Sunday, March 12, Junior from Barranquilla faced Envigado at the Metropolitano stadium, with the aim of getting up from his bad streak that has him in the last places of the Betplay League position table and the elimination he suffered in the Copa Sudamericana at the hands of Deportes Tolima last Thursday.

In front was an always complicated Envigado, who is well positioned in the standings and has had good performances in the Colombian league. Hence Junior went out to the field of the Metropolitan in search of demonstrating before this young team that he had to leave behind the bad moment and that it has a luxurious roster full of talent.

In the first half of the game there were not many emotions, however, the clear intention of looking for the opposite goal was Junior de Barranquilla. But these arrivals were never clear and allowed, with the passing of the minutes, that the visiting team was establishing itself on the field.

In the second half, the Antioquia team came out more ambitious to look for Sebastián Viera’s goal and that was how, at minute 53, Steven Cuervo managed to open the scoring and give Envigado the advantage in the Barranquilla stadium. Concern returned to the fans and the team led by Arturo Reyes.

Everything got worse at minute 69, when Juan Zapata scored 2-0 in favor of Envigado and showed that they are a team that can win on any pitch. Juan Fernando Quintero and his companions did not understand what was happening. While from the stands the desperation of the junior fans began to be felt.

Just three minutes later, Juan Fernando Quintero had a free kick in favor and managed to score his first goal since returning to Colombian professional soccer. The man from Antioquia scored a great goal from a free kick, the first with the rojiblanca shirt, but there was not much celebration due to the desire to go back to turn the score at home.

The minutes passed and the Junior players began to look more and more desperately for the equalizing goal. But every time Envigado tried to attack it was dangerous and it seemed that the visiting team’s third goal could come. However, it does not happened.

The game ended with six minutes of addition in which the sharks were above the Envigado area looking to tie the game, but they failed to do so and the victory ended up being for those led by Alberto Suárez who took three important points from the Metropolitano de Barranquilla stadium .

For his part, Junior, accumulated a new defeat and each time His sports crisis is worse, since now he is last in the standings and was left without an international tournament. Therefore, the continuity of coach Arturo Reyes begins to be questioned, since he has only been able to win one game all year. He even managed three games in 2022 and failed to win any of them either.

Junior was last in the Colombian league standings, but it must be taken into account that he has one game less, since his game last weekend, against América de Cali, was postponed. Which seemed good news because the red arrived at a great moment, being the leader of the League, while the sharks were full of doubts and needed to prepare for the Copa Sudamericana match. Match that they ended up losing and being eliminated from the international tournament.
