San Lorenzo is not having the start of the season they had hoped for.
El Ciclón got their first win in the 6th round; however, they had to come from a goal down to do it, and it was against the worst club in the Superliga. Four days after defeating Patronato, San Lorenzo lost in Montevideo to Nacional 2-0, which meant it was 3-3 on aggregate and Nacional advanced on away goals. San Lorenzo was eliminated from the Copa Sudamericana.
Things are not going well in Bajo Flores. Fans are frustrated with the team but mostly with their Manager Claudio Pampa Biaggio. While it’s been a disappointing first couple of months, there is hope for fans of El Cuervo and he is just 16 years old.
On Friday night against Patronato, at just 16 years, 4 months, and 11 days old, Matías Palacios entered into the San Lorenzo record books and became the youngest ever to play for El Ciclón in the first division. It is unclear if El Pampa will continue to give Palacios first team experience or if this was a one-off occurrence. But Cuervo fans are already getting excited about the youngster, calling him the future number 10 of Argentina.
