Peñarol upset Villa Espanola with a fantastic gol from Jose Maria Franco. The score ended 3 nil to Peñarol in a game that could have easily ended up the other way. Caballero had an incredible game between the posts for Peñarol. He saved everything that came his way and that confidence translated with a resounding win late in the game.
Below is the footage of the game, have a look at the last couple of minutes where Franco scores one of the gols of the tournament.
The game between nacional and Villa Espanola at the Parque Central was suspended by the legendery (Manya) referee Liber Prudente, to the surprise of the crowd. The referee stuck to the rules and decided to suspend the game at 3.30pm (Uruguayan Time) 31.08.08.
Villa Espanola was on the field at 3.24pm as the referee had previously advised that both Teams needed to be present by 3.25pm as the game needed to start at 3.30pm.
Due to nacional’s history of not turning up for games or the famous La Fuga where nacional did not show up for the second half of the clasico it’s no wonder that the referee suspended the game as I’m sure he thought that nacional were not showing up.
The AUF Tribunal has awarded Villa Espanola the 3 points and the final result will be nacional 0-2 Villa Espanola.
