Bad news in Alianza Lima vs. Athletic Alliance. About the 11th minute of the second half, the lights went out at the Alejandro Villanueva stadium. Immediately, the match of the fourth day of the Closing Tournament of League 1 was stopped. Then, there were movements on the pitch with the players and in the stands with the fans.
The 'Vendaval' crossed the field of the host team. On the flank, the team led by coach Mario Viera tried to progress to bring danger to the opposite goal. At that moment, the lights of the colossus of La Victoria began to lose power and this was reflected on the pitch.
Seconds later, all the lights of the lighting towers were permanently extinguished. The entire field and the stands were in darkness. In parallel, the footballers met in their respective positions. In parallel, the fans who attended Alianza Lima's house turned on the flashlights of their cell phones to light up.
With play stopped, delegations from both squads left the field. Meanwhile, logistics managers worked hard to solve the problem. At the same time, in the transmission of Gol Peru they indicated that the commitment could be resumed within a maximum period of 15 minutes, but that period could be prolonged.
In case the problems continue in Matute, the game between Alianza Lima and Alianza Atlético should resume on Thursday, July 27. The match will be restarted from the 11th minute, when the blackout occurred. The estimated time would be for 11 in the morning.

Alianza Lima's goal
At 45′+2′, Hernán Barcos received the ball on the edge of the area and, between the marks of two rivals, sent a cross. Aldair Rodríguez then beat the defenders and headed the ball.
Instantly, Pablo Lavandeira anticipated a player and overcame Diego Penny's resistance to unleash the hubbub at the Alejandro Villanueva Stadium. In this way, the Uruguayan midfielder adds his tenth goal of the season (8 in the local tournament and 7 in the Copa Libertadores)
Furthermore, Aldair Rodríguez adds his fourth consecutive assist and his fifth in the campaign. Also, the striker has contributed with two goals in the year.
