Diego Aguirre’s position as San Lorenzo manager becomes increasingly precarious with each match and Friday evening’s defeat to relegation threatened Temperley leaves the Uruguayan hanging on by a thread.
A third defeat in four matches has seen San Lorenzo’s title hopes go up in smoke and after this weekend, Los Cuervos could find themselves ten points off the top of the table.
The home side saw plenty of the ball but could not find a way past Matías Ibáñez in the Temperley goal and instead it was an error in the San Lorenzo goal that gifted the three points.
Former San Lorenzo midfielder Leonardo Di Lorenzo drove forward unchallenged and although his long range effort was powerfully stuck it slipped through the grasp of Sebastián Torrico.
Aguirre’s side had the chances to equalise and perhaps should have had a penalty but it was Temperley that came closest to finding the net again when Alexis Zárate clattered the ball against the crossbar from 35 yards out.
To make matters worse for San Lorenzo, Fernando Belluschi limped off during the second half in obvious discomfort and if Los Cuervos don’t beat Universidad Católica on Tuesday in the Copa Libertadores, it could spell the end for Diego Aguirre.
