River thrashed Racing at the Monumental and is champion

The welcome, worthy of great occasions, and the emotional tribute prior to Diego Maradona with the players of both teams forming the number 10 preceded the start of the match.

The beginning was intense because Racing took center stage and went out to attack against a River that settled down little by little and also had its chance to open the scoring.

The game was not good because the local tried to control the ball but could not and the visitor pressed but did not know how to generate danger when he had the ball.

Little by little, River was tilting the game towards the rival area and to disturb Gabriel Arias, especially when the ball was well handled by Enzo Fernández, who attended Palavecino to dial 1 to 0.


As expected, the goal played in the spirit and Marcelo Gallardo’s team had a couple of clear situations to increase the difference.

The second goal came at the start of the add-on and did it, how could it be otherwise, Julian Alvarez.

From 2 to 0 it was all a River party and it was just a matter of seeing how many more goals would arrive. That is why it was not surprising that At 21 ‘the 3-0 score was scored by Brian Romero.


Arriving at half an hour there was a remarkable event of the night when Leonardo Ponzio, a legend of the squad who had the luxury of playing as a starter, was replaced and applauded all over the stadium. Another very applauded, upon entering, was Jonatan Maidana.

Between ovation and ovation, Brian Romero made the 4 to 0 to continue adding to an unquestionable victory.
