River could not find the return to the game and lost 1-0 with banfieldfor a center that escaped Frank Armani and squeezed Jeremiah Perales. Until a ball fell in a corner of the area, Frank Quinteros he jumped to head, missed the goal and the ball hit him in the hand. acted on VAR and it all ended in an unusual penalty that Enzo Fernandez changed to draw.
In the end, even though he didn’t deserve it, River won 2-1 by a genius of Juanfer Quintero and an imposing resolution from Matias Suárez, but he also celebrated for that VAR wink.

Boca, in short, had a hard time asserting itself, so much so that after 30 minutes it almost did not kick a team that is last in Group B on goal. Lanus he found equality with a definition from the legendary José Sand and was even able to win it in the second stage with a shot from Matías Pérez that hit a post.
