River Plate, without opposition against Belgrano

Belgrano always tends to cause problems for River. He was the rival with whom the ‘millionaires’ lost on the saddest day in their history, on that afternoon of relegation. The people of Córdoba became an adversary that scared them. However, those ghosts did not appear during the cold Saturday afternoon at the Monumental.

This River from Martín Demichelis crushed Belgrano. He did almost the same thing as against Central Córdoba on the first day of this Argentine league. He even repeated the result: 3-0. Of course, there was a difference. Today’s River is so forceful that it scored without the need for its top scorer, Miguel Borja, to score.

There is a great difference in individual hierarchy between River and many of its Argentine soccer rivals. And it was noticed again. The millionaires had 77 percent possession and enhanced it with the number of effective shots on goal: 12 against none from Belgrano. And in corner kicks, the same: 7 against 1.

In any case, not everything was so simple for River. Although she created situations, she did not shine. She didn’t shine. He had a hard time finding the first goal. And he found it because of a serious mistake by Belgrano, one of those mistakes that cannot be made against teams like River because they are fatal. The Cordobans failed at the start. Pablo Solari pressed very well, stole and played for Claudio Echeverri. And the Devil slid like a crack into the area and put it in a corner.

The story was settled by the millionaires in the 81st minute, with Facundo Colidio (in for Borja), who had his celebration after a lucky detour. Thus he scored his eighth goal in the last eight games.

Colidio was a substitute thinking about the Argentine Cup match in the middle of the week. Martín Demichelis doses minutes. And he gave the title to Solari, who was not only attentive to remove and generate the first goal. He was also precise to squeeze out a great pass from Nacho Fernández and put it down, next to a post. The ideal ending.

Live days of joy and dreams River. It was not a football lesson, but it drowned Belgrano, who was almost never able to respond. And he ended up crushing it. Demichelis’ team has already qualified for the round of 16 of the Libertadores as first in its group and one day before the closing of the qualifying phase. And in this Argentine league, two days, two 3-0 victories. Perfect start.
