Alianza Lima failed to become three-time Women’s League champions after losing 2-0 to Universitario in the second leg final. The Familiars suffered a serious setback as they overcame the lead they had gained in Matute thanks to goals from “Fefa” Lacoste and Campoverde. The blue and white team didn’t show a good performance and were heavily criticized by fans on social networks. One of the most notable players was Adriana Lucar.
The attacker, who was the Championship’s top scorer with 17 goals, was absent from the scoreboard throughout the series and received several comments questioning her poor performance in the title defense against the Lionesses.
“It was only at the age of 85, two goals behind, that they started playing. Lúcar disappeared”; “Porras cannot be a starter, very low above Lúcar, they have to bring another 9 so he can challenge them”; “We must thank Lúcar and wish him well”; “It cannot be the case that your star player in attack is a substitute and we end up having to rely on Lúcar”; “I think the same about Lúcar… Weak in the important games! Well, let’s move on”; “Lúcar hasn’t been playing well for some time but there are no other 9 of her characteristics, Lord, make her play,” read some of the many comments on Twitter.

declared captain of Alianza Lima after the final with teary eyes
Yoselin Miranda, the captain of Alianza Lima, was very sad after the end of the game after losing the final against Universitario. The player explained in front of the Nativa cameras and expressed her displeasure.
“Those were two failures on our part. Regrettable and painful because we wanted this championship. Football is like that. You can win, lose or draw. The team was always united. We knew how to get up when we lost, and we have to.” “Go on. Football gives you revenge, so we have to continue to prepare and move forward,” said the defender.
