Verón forced off with injury as Estudiantes suffer friendly defeat to San Lorenzo (VIDEO)


Sebastián Blanco’s imminent transfer to Portland Timbers dominated the build up but San Lorenzo still secured a preseason win over Estudiantes in Mar del Plata, a result that crowned Boca Juniors champions of the triangular tournament.

Ezequiel Ávila’s deflected strike gave Los Cuervos an early lead and although Estudiantes created opportunities to level it, Nelson Vivas’ side couldn’t find an equaliser.

Already missing key players from last year, Estudiantes will have been concerned to see Juan Sebastián Verón limp off with what looked like a hamstring injury so soon after his comeback.

Nicolás Blandi was sent off for a second yellow card in the closing stages but San Lorenzo held on for the win. However, the one-goal margin meant Boca Juniors were crowned champions thanks to their greater victory over Estudiantes.
