River lost 1-0 against Atlético Mineiro at the Monumental and was very difficult in the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores.
After a good first half, the Millionaire fell in the second half and suffered from Nacho Fernández’s goal (he ended up being sent off). We do an analysis of the Gallardo team.
River left an excellent image in the first half and played as it should be done on Libertadores nights. The goal was missing, but the team made merits to win at halftime.
Julián Álvarez responded in the best way and was the great figure of the team. He took over the game and had several scoring situations. You must remain at this level.
Everything good about the first half was overshadowed by what happened in the second half. The players entered asleep and Atlético Mineiro had several occasions before Nacho Fernández’s goal. Completely unknown.
As on other occasions, River had no reaction after the rival’s goal and was not close to the equalizer. He lacked soul and attitude to go looking for him.
Enzo Pérez was on the edge and he knew it very well. They admonished him minutes from time, in an isolated play in midfield. A very sensitive casualty thinking about the rematch.
