Godoy Cruz History
It is possible to consider the club’s Superliga Argentina 2017/18 season to be the club’s finest performance in Primera Division. The team finished in second place during that season. Godoy Cruz, who were placed in the middle of the table (twelfth after Matchday 12) in the league standings at the time, improvised to begin the 2018 half of the season by promoting manager Diego Dabove, who had been coaching the reserve team since 2017. This was after an erratic start to the season that led to the dismissal of both Lucas Bernardi and his Uruguayan replacement, Mauricio Larriera.
Dabove reorganized the starting 11 so that they might function more effectively as a unit that counterattacks. El Tomba amassed 56 points in 27 games played, with in-form striker Santiago Garca helping the team set their own club record of six consecutive wins during a late season push (Matchday 18 to 23) to keep eventual title winners Boca Juniors unable to clinch the division title until the penultimate matchday.
Despite the fact that the club rarely dominated possession statistics game after game, “El Tomba” was able to keep Boca Juniors from clinching the division title until Godoy Cruz’s early season inconsistency and the draw away at Banfield on Matchday 24 with a last-gasp 90’+3 goal-line save by Banfield defender Adrián Sporle may have been important reasons in the team ending only two points behind Boca’s 58 points.
