Estudiantes needed to win and the name of Leandro Díaz was vital to get back to three points in the First Division tournament. El Loco scored the third and fourth goals in the 4-1 win over Huracán.
Besides participating in Del Prete’s first goal with a shot at goal that Marcos Díaz blocked and the Uruguayan took advantage of the rebound, the first great action of the former Atlético Tucumán was in the 34th minute when he scored the 3-1 with a penalty kick.
In the additional time, in the 6th minute, after a great run from the middle of the field and a left-footed shot, he scored his second personal goal and closed the scoreboard to give the definitive victory to El León.
With this brace, the striker, who has a contract with Estudiantes until December of this year, reached 5 goals in the tournament and has scored in three consecutive matches (River, Lanús and Huracán).
In addition, he reached 10 goals in total with the Pincha.
Congratulations Leandro! We are happy to accompany you in your professional career.
