In the last of the thirteen matches on date 7 of the Argentine Professional League, River Plate visited Gimnasia LP in the Forest of La Plata and ended up taking a pale 1 to 1 draw, since it did not shine since the game and was again indebted to his fans.
Next, we will review the five errors and the success of Marcelo Gallardo’s team, which was hit hard after being eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores de América at the hands of Atlético Mineiro from Brazil, with an aggregate of 0-4, and from which he could not recover yet: it has been evidenced in this confrontation.
River failed again as a team and its players are more than aware of it: “We are going to be angry. The level is not the best we can give, we have to raise our heads and keep working to achieve the goal. We are realistic. We know that we are not doing things in the best way, and we have to take charge to move it forward. We cannot lose that mentality for what we know how to give on the field of play. Today we find a quick goal and there we stay. We have to turn the page, and be what we are to move this forward, “said the Cordovan forward. At least they know …
Just as he had been the best against Vélez, today he was one of the weakest: Gerometta constantly beat him for that sector and also threw the center of Luis Rodríguez’s goal. Gallardo had warned him to be more attentive to the centers of this right-back but “Chanchi” could not stop him.
The weakest of the “Millionaire”. Very messy when marking, very imprecise when playing. He should have left at halftime, but Gallardo gave him a few more minutes.
He has not found regularity in any midfielder for that “fourth place” in the middle of the team since Nacho Fernández left. He tried with Palavecino, Carrascal, Paradela, Álvarez and today with Simón. Costs. They go in and out, they are starters or they don’t even play. Complicated.
The only redeemable for River at night in La Plata. Great income from Tomas Galván, with moments of pasture and impudence to face rivals. Very good again like that afternoon at the Bombonera. Despite his youth, he tried to put the equipment on his shoulder and hurt with his weapons.
