Celebrates the red and white part of Buenos Aires. River is the ruler of the Argentine capital. The millionaires defeated the angry rival Boku Juniors at Monumental with 2: 1 (2: 0) in the derby of the 14th round of the Professional League, remained in the game for the title, but also knocked out the great rival from every story about defending the throne.
Millionaires have finally lifted the curse of Monumetal. After almost 11 years, they got a great rival on their bunker in the championship. Before this great victory, River celebrated back on November 16, 2010. The most trophic coach in River history Marcelo Gallardo he never won the Gauchos title. Now he hits the crown of the national champion.
River will spend the night on the throne, but Taljeers Korodoba has a chance to overtake the great rival. Young expert, club legend, Sebastijan Batalja, he replaced it perfectly Miguel Angela Rusa on the bench of Boka, but this was his first defeat at the helm of the famous club and probably a farewell from the fight for the title.
He was the tragedian of the match Marcos Roho. At the beginning of the year, the former Argentine national team player returned to Boca from Manchester United. After only 16 minutes, he had to go to the locker room. He just got a yellow card, after the car he started rough on the midfielder of the home team Agustina Palavesina. Judge Rapalini he had no dilemmas, he gave another yellow card to the experienced left back.
This has made the job of the company much easier Marcel Gallard. Then River set off as if in a trance, carried by a roar from the stands. Let us remind you, for this round, the Argentine authorities allowed the audience to return to the stadiums (although half of the stadium’s capacity, but the hosts had great support from the stands of Monumental).
The river has a new miracle, a new ace that will drive European giants crazy. His name is Julian Alvarez. He took advantage of the Colombian’s departure this season Rafaela Santos Borea at Eintracht Frankfurt. He is only 21 years old and is already a superstar in Argentina. He gave his angry rival two goals in the first half and threw the blue-yellows to his knees.
In the 25th minute, the young ace played a simultaneous game with Boka. After a few dribbles, he fired an arrow from about 25 meters. Guest goalkeeper Agustin Rossi was badly placed, he just "swam” into the net and strengthened the impression at the goal. The stands boiled over after 582 days, as long as the break due to the crown pandemic and the matches that were played in front of the empty stands.
At the end of the first half, Santiago Simon is like on a tray hired Alvarez, and the young ace just kicked the ball into the net from five or six meters. Rosi was again powerless in the 43rd minute. It was the young ace’s seventh goal in 11 games in the new season of the Professional League. It was clear then that the team from Bombonjera has no salvation, that they will kneel at Monumental after more than a decade in championship games.
Boka has a problem with realization all season. No more club legends Carlos Tevez,, Ramon Abila went to MLS, not long ago either Sebastian Villa. After shutdown Roha,, Battalion took the Colombian out of the game Edwin Cardon and it was clear that there was no rescue for the guests at the Monumental,
The host controlled the game and the result in the second half, Rivera’s players could have scored some more goals, but they will not regret it too much Gallard’s chosen ones. In the finish of the match, Boka scored from the first shot Frank Armani managed to shake the host’s net. The shooter was a Peruvian Carlos Zambrano, but there was no more time, Rapalini he immediately played the end. Zambrano was the highest in the jump after the corner, Armani defended the shot, but it slipped out of his hands and crossed the air line of the goal, for the final 2: 1.
Celebrate River victory and the continuation of the title race. By the end of the season, the great from Monumental with Talleres and maybe Lanus will lead the battle for the crown in the Argentine championship.
