Sarmiento’s relegation situation is looking bleak and on Monday night Gabriel Schürrer’s side fell to a fourth defeat of the season as Unión ended their winless run of four with a 1-0 victory in Santa Fe.
Franco Soldano’s header after quarter of an hour was enough to take the points for El Tatengue and the result leaves Sarmiento with just a solitary win in eight entrenched in the relegation zone.
Earlier in Florencio Varela, Defensa y Justicia’s lack of a goal scorer was again costly as San Martín were able to hold out for a deserved point.
El Halcón may have dominated possession but it was perhaps the visitors that carved out the clearer chances. With neither able to find a breakthrough a goalless draw meant a share of the spoils. Both sides have won only once this season and for Ariel Holán’s side it is a fifth game in which they have failed to find the net.
