River returned to give a new sample of superiority and character. And this time the victim was Banfield. For the tenth date of Group 1 of the League Cup, the “Millionaire” visited the south of Greater Buenos Aires. He had started losing by a goal from Jeremias Perales (23m PT), but in the complement he turned it around, with goals from Enzo Fernández (8m ST, from a penalty), and Matías Suárez (21m ST).
But the game was not without controversy since, in what was Enzo Fernández’s goal, the VAR intervened to charge a penalty for a handball by Banfield defender Franco Quinteros.
The great controversy of the night: Quinteros failed in the header and ended up touching the ball with his hand. The referee was called by the VAR, he checked it and ended up charging River a penalty. How about? pic.twitter.com/JRB9AnCtHe
