Lautaro Martinez scores in Argentina 1-0 win vs. Peru, undefeated in 25 matches


Lautaro Martinez scored for Argentina in their 1-0 win vs. Peru and are undefeated in their last 25 matches.

Martinez made it two goals in two matches in October for Argentina as his late first half goal gave Argentina the three points. Lionel Scaloni’s team created several chances in the first half but were unable to score. It was another man of the match performance by Rodrigo De Paul as he played a pass in to Nahuel Molina and his cross found Lautaro who scored with a great header to give Argentina the 1-0 lead.

Argentina saw much of the ball in the second half but Peru threatened and a foul by Emiliano Martinez inside the penalty area gave Peru a penalty. Yoshimar Yotun took the penalty for Peru as his effort hit the crossbar and out while Emiliano Martinez had jumped the right way.

Lionel Scaloni made two changes with Nicolas Gonzalez replacing Angel Di Maria and Guido Rodriguez in for Leandro Paredes. Gonzalez had an opportunity as he ran towards the Peruvian back line but his effort went out for a corner kick.

Guido Rodriguez scored a header in the second half but it was ruled out for a foul. Scaloni made two more changes as Joaquin Correa was brough in for Lautaro Martinez and Exequiel Palacios for Gio Lo Celso.

  2. Guidos goal should have stood, Weak foul call same as the penalty on Farfán, Sampaio was trying to keep Peru in it. Great first half. Some lack of concentration in The second. Overall good game, They did enough to win although they should have scored a few more. 25 pts with 7 games left. Qatar should hopefully be secured in November
