OTC will receive Unión de Santa Fe in the Capital del Monte with the illusion of triumphing again to give joy to the sky-blue fans. The team led by Fabio Demti in their last match lost 87 to 79 at home and for this reason, now against Tatengue they will seek to turn the page so as not to have a negative balance in the league.
It should be clarified that Celeste obtained two points against San Lorenzo since the Cyclone did not show up for the match due to numerous cases of Covid-19. Likewise, OTC is located in the 11th position with 24 units since so far it has achieved eight wins and eight losses.
On the other hand, Unión de Santa Fe has just beaten the five-time champion of the National League by 75 to 58. So far in 2022, they have played two games, one against Ciclón and the other against Boca, a match that they lost by 90 to 67.
In this aspect, the Tatengue is located in position 14 with 22 units. OTC, Unión, Peñarol de Mar del Plata and La Unión are the teams with the most games played with 16.
National League | OTC beat San Lorenzo without playing, find out why
Last Friday, the Obereño team had to open the year against the five-time national basketball champion. However, OTC beat San Lorenzo without playing and added its first two points in 2022. Find out why.
OTC beat San Lorenzo without playing and got two important points. This occurred since the Cyclone team is decimated by the cases of Covid-19 and could not appear for the game that was to be played tonight in missionary lands. On the other hand, Celeste has only one infected and it is Nicolás De Los Santos, so they have almost the entire squad available to face league games.
Positive cases of coronavirus are increasing throughout the country and it clearly affects the sports world. San Lorenzo through a statement warned that he was not going to show up to play due to the number of positive cases. “In the tests prior to practices, 22 positive cases have been registered, between players and technical staff. Those infected are well and asymptomatic, following the instructions of the medical staff”, they pointed out from the CASLA Básquet basketball Twitter account.
For this reason, the Club Association (AdC) ruled that OTC would win the match and therefore they will be awarded two points for the single zone standings. Likewise, Celeste has 8 wins and 7 losses with 14 games played and one won by “desk”. In this way, OTC was tenth with 23 points
As for San Lorenzo, they were seventh in the table with 21 points after 8 wins and 5 losses. According to Mundo Azulgrana, the Boedo team through the letter signed by its president, Horacio Arreceygor, requested the postponement of the matches against Oberá (to be played today in Misiones) and Communications (Sunday 9). However, in the morning hours, the National League did not make a good gesture and “has already given up the game to San Lorenzo” publishing an “Oberá 20 – San Lorenzo 0”. That did not go down well because they had no response from within the League.
