Godoy Cruz has a series of very curious stories every time he had to play against Arsenal. In fact, this confrontation has been from 2006 onwards a series of unfortunate events, generally for Tomba. Something like a kind of curse.
Home debut, incidents and suspension
The first time that the Express played at home in the First Division, after the historic promotion of the 2005/2006 season, it was precisely against Sarand’s men. The Chocho Llop team came to debut in the highest category with an unfair defeat against Argentinos Juniors and wanted to recover.
But that afternoon of Saturday, August 12, 2006, the least there was was football. Godoy Cruz’s brave bar suspended the game because they had not reached an agreement for the tickets in favor of the leadership, or with the amount of money that they asked the squad. That is why the Express Band began to throw stones as soon as the match started, there was police repression and the judge said enough after 15 minutes of play. Then the match was completed several weeks later, and Tomba won 2 to 1.
