Regardless of the difficulties, Melgar still maintains the dream of qualifying for the next phase of the South American Cup. And it is that the ‘Domino’, next Thursday, August 11, will be measured in the return match for the quarterfinals against Porto Alegre International and those responsible for imparting justice in the clash between the two clubs have already been defined. Will be Robert Tobar the main judge of the match that will take place at the Beira Rio Stadium.
The Chilean referee will repeat his leading role in a duel between teams from Peru and Brazil, given that he was in charge of directing the final of the America’s Cup 2019 between ‘Bicolor’ and ‘Canarinha’, a match that ended with a 3-1 result in favor of those led by Tite.
As it is recalled, the southern judge is not well remembered by Peruvian football fans, after his disputed arbitration in the duel for the Qualifiers between the Peruvian National Team Y Brazilfor which he was even sanctioned for several dates, distancing him from his trade.
Time later, Tobar put on his uniform again and returned to his work. That is why the Conmebol Referees Commission appointed him for the duel between the ‘Rojinegros’ and the ‘Colorado’. In the same way, the Chilean will be accompanied by his compatriot, Christian Schieman Y Claudio Rioswhile John Lara will be in charge of the VAR.
All set for revenge
Melgar reached these instances after beating Deportivo Cali in round-trip matches, although they know that -this time- the mission will be much more complicated than back then, since Porto Alegre International is one of the giants of the continent and seeks to raise the South American Cup at the end of the year.
In that sense, the red and blacks and the ‘Colorado’ will face each other this Wednesday, August 10 from 5:15 p.m. (Peruvian time), in a meeting that, as well as the entire international contest, will be broadcast EN LIVE and DIRECT on the international signal of DirecTV Sports Peru.
