Back to victory: River beat San Lorenzo 1

River Plate achieved a great victory 1-0 against San Lorenzo and gets back into the fight for the championship. In an intense classic played at the New Gasometer, the ‘Millionaire’ broke with two consecutive defeats thanks to both Emanuel Mammana and, with one more match, he was placed four points from the top, held by Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata .

Likewise, Marcelo Gallardo’s team added three vital points to stay in the qualifying zone for the next Copa Libertadores. At this point, the ‘Ciclón’ got complicated as it moved away from the Copa Sudamericana places. The referee was Patricio Loustau, who expelled Marcelo Herrera at 28 ‘of the complement.

River Plate went ahead after a first stage where they had great control, but few dangerous arrivals. San Lorenzo recently balanced the actions midway through the first half, but paid dearly for the lack of ambition in attack. That is why in a bad start and lack of defensive coordination, the ‘Millionaire’ took the lead thanks to Emanuel Mammana’s goal, with a shot from outside the area.

Nicolás de La Cruz was the most incisive in the visiting team: he repeatedly sought Pablo Solari, who fought more than he played and warned with a cross shot that Batalla cleared the corner. On the left he had no option to pass, since Milton Casco was busy marking Pocho Cerutti. And Esequiel Barco did not generate practically danger, more than that shot on the end to place, after a great unchecking inside the area.

During much of the stage, River pulled the strings, but it was difficult for him to break the line of 9 players, between defenders and midfielders, well grouped behind that he deployed. The medium-distance shots were an option, also the ball stopped with a sharp center from De La Cruz that Batalla cleared with his fists.

San Lorenzo’s first came only at 15′, when Giay sent a sharp cross for Bareiro, but before Mammana rejected the corner. The ‘Ciclón’ relied on the imbalance in the feet of Barrios, but the ‘Perrito’ quickly wore out since, like Cerutti, he had to control Marcelo Herrera’s advances in this case. The locals warned again with a header from Bareiro that went over the top, after a corner executed by Cerutti.

Until River Plate’s goal came at 39 minutes. A bad start in defense of San Lorenzo, fatigue played a trick on Barrios, and after a series of first touches he was left with a bad clearance given to Mammana, who did not hesitate and hit him first from the crescent. He was so cornered that even though Batalla threw himself, he couldn’t avoid the goal.

River Plate has complicated its options to fight for the national title with the two recent defeats: 1-0 against Boca Juniors and 2-1 against Banfield. However, there are still opportunities (Gimnasia is the leader, with 36 points) and Marcelo Gallardo will not give up until the end of the season.

Part of the football downturn of the ‘Millionaires’ has to do with the absence of a decisive scorer. Although Pablo Solari had a positive impact on the team since his arrival, he currently has three games without direct participation in the offense of his squad.

The Colombian Miguel Borja has not been regular either and for this reason he has remained as a substitute for much of his stay in River. Lucas Beltrán, who has usually been a starter, has not been a solution for the ‘Band’.

On the other hand, San Lorenzo moved away from the first places of the classification due to the four consecutive ties that it accumulates. The most recent parity was against Colón (0-0). And as a local, the ‘Ciclón’ comes from a double 1-1 against Atlético Tucumán and Rosario Central.

Coach Rubén Darío Insúa, who has known how to get a good collective version of his coaches, enlists the strategist to return to the path of victory. Adam Bareiro, with eight goals in the season, will be the leader of the offense, while Andrés Vombergar, with three goals, will accompany him.
