Peñarol tied with Rocha FC 4-4

<<previous next>>
Peñarol Rocha
In a narrow escape from humiliation Peñarol tied today with Rocha 4-4. Why is this relevant? Peñarol is one of the greatest football teams in Uruguay, in terms of history, number of supporters, and titles achieved (the greatest of them all is Nacional, but that’s off topic :), and it almost got humiliated today for the second time in a row by a much inferior team (inferior in terms of funding ;), since about a month ago Peñarol lost 7-2 with Danubio (that’s gotta hurt).

Today Peñarol has tied, from behind, thanks mainly to the red card shown to Rocha’s player Cardozo, leaving the game 11 against 10 early on the second half of the match, giving Peñarol time to recover from a three goals difference. It is in this way that Peñarol concludes a terrible year, winning nothing, going nowhere, relented to watch the Libertadores cup on TV.

On the other hand Rocha FC (football club) is barely a professional team, funded in 1999. It’s more of an amateur group invited to play the national championship. Miraculously Rocha entered in the history of Uruguayan football about a week ago, when beating Rampla Jrs, and obtaining the first half of the national championship (“el apertura”), consecrating itself as the first team coming from outside Montevideo to win a national cup. Rocha Peñarol

As a Uruguayan champion Rocha is going to play “La Copa Libertadores de America” cup, being the most popular South America’s clubs championship, facing the best of South American football teams, like Argentinean Boca jrs. The question is will it be able to sustain the success achieved nationally?

Nacional the greatest ?

Please stop kidding yourself. What little is known in most of the world about Uruguay is thanks to Peñarol. Here in Italy we follow Uruguayan futbol and we love the black and yellow team.

I am originaly from "La Union/Villa Espanola right where El Club Nacional De futbol is located at in Ocho de Octubre and I NEVER set my feet there because I'm a Penarol fan.
Nacional sucks, they can't even afford to hire a coach.
