With the team decimated by the elimination subpoenas of several of its players, River Plate won 2-1 against Sarmiento, with goals from Carrascal and Pérez, for the ninth round of the Professional League and was two points from the top.
Next, we review the scores of the eleven starters that Marcelo Gallardo lined up in Junín …
Enrique Bologna (3): the fourth oldest goalkeeper to play in the history of the Millionaire made sight in the goal that opened the game. Any good you have done takes a back seat.
Alex Vigo (4): he delivered a key pass and the only cross he sent was accurate. But still he showed a very different image from the last duel. Gallardo decided to take him out at 46 ‘.
Felipe Peña (7): He showed solvency and personality on an impromptu bottom line. He is one of the most interesting young men Gallardo has at his disposal.
Enzo Pérez (6): he won aerial duels and delivered the ball with precision as usual. The only counter went through one of his great advantages when he plays as a midfielder, positioning. He supplied it with experience and with the goal of the match.
Bruno Zuculini (4): he stood as a central defender and did not do it badly. You will have the first bumps on your head after a few precise headshots (4/4). Wildcard.
Milton Helmet (8): He delivered 2 key passes and an assist after an insane play in the left lane. It is a shame – and at the same time a luxury – to have to sit him on the bench because of Angileri’s presence.
Agustín Palavecino (6): he had to play De la Cruz in an alternative eleven and he did not do it bad at all. He completed 3/3 dribbles, delivered 2 key passes and leaked attacks from Green at times. Approved.
Enzo Fernandez (3): He still does not show the vertical pass that blinded us in Defense. It is very far from that version. It was replaced.
Braian Romero (4): He worked hard so that the absence within the team is not noticed. But the days go by and the gunpowder is still wet, the fans at some point will reproach you. Sometimes there is also prioritizing the individual …
Jorge Carrascal (9): he won 11/17 ground duels and converted River’s goal 1-1. He deserved it, for his daring to break the molds of a structured soccer to pure dribbling. Come on, Carrasca!
Federico Girotti (5): he helped in the defensive facet of the team and had no presence in attack. Gallardo must improve it, but not turn it off; today this happened. The kid forgot to play.
