Only three on the way: the remaining matches for Melgar, Huancayo and Cristal with a view to the Apertura title

The Opening Tournament of League 1 gets better and better. After last weekend Melgar, Sport Huancayo Y Sporting Crystal They are the clubs that continue with options to lift the trophy in this first part of the year. The rojinegros have the favorites poster as they are the only leaders; however, nothing is said and in the last days there could be surprises.

Néstor Lorenzo’s team did not start 2022 on the right foot. Although he had the difficult task of facing the local tournament and the Copa Sudamericana group stage at the same time, he managed to dominate in both competitions. He is first in the Peruvian standings with 37 units and, in turn, qualified for the round of 16 of the international championship.

After their recent victory over Sport Boys, in Callao, Melgar has been one step away from raising the cup of the Opening Tournament. In the worst case, he would finish with a point on his only guard and, in the best, he would take four points, which would allow him to win the championship if he wins their next match.

Sport Huancayo is the team that is closest to reaching Melgar in the classification. Those led by Carlos Dessio became strong at home (they have not lost any game in the ‘Incontrastable’) and cling to the possibility of winning the Apertura Tournament.

The ‘Rojo Matador’ adds 33 units and is located four from Arequipa. In their next duel, they will have to face each other against Ayacucho FC, as a local, a clash that will lower the curtains on matchday 17.

Finally, Sporting Crystal, third in the standings, is the last team with a chance of finishing first in the Apertura. The Celestes put aside the Copa Libertadores and are completely focused on League 1. With 32 units they are still alive and they do not plan to give up so easily.

Those led by Roberto Mosquera will face Alianza Atlético at the Alberto Gallardo the next day and, depending on the result, will shed light on what their chances of reaching Melgar will be. It only serves them to win.
