With a penalty goal by Lucas Janson, Vélez Sarsfield won this Wednesday 1-0 against River Plate at the José Amalfitani stadium, in a match valid for one of the Argentine series of the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores.
Janson’s solitary penalty goal in the 15th minute allowed Fortín to take the lead in this meeting of Argentine teams, ahead of the second leg that will be played next Wednesday, July 6 at the Monumental stadium.
Vélez came out determined from the start to impose his electric and intense style of play, but in the first ten minutes River twice dangerously hit the goal defended by Lucas Hoyos: in the 6th minute Enzo Fernández shot over the crossbar and two minutes then Julián Álvarez took a shot that was stopped by the local goalkeeper.
The home team did not surrender and in the 13th minute a double error by Héctor Martínez ended with a foul on Janson, which the striker himself changed for a goal in the penalty that he calmly executed to the left of goalkeeper Franco Armani. ?From that moment on, River had a new option through Braian Romero, who received a good clearance from Enzo Fernández in the 31st minute but between Gómez and Hoyos they were in charge of neutralizing.
At the end of the first half, the best version of Gallardo’s River was seen, which was able to equalize in the 38th minute with a combination between José Paradela and Álvarez that ended with a weak shot by the striker at the hands of Lucas Hoyos. In the second half, River had the entry of Colombian Juan Fernando Quintero instead of Esequiel Barco, but he did not have such a positive impact on the visiting game.
Vélez grew with the complement and had three clear options to increase the advantage: at 52 Lucas Pratto had a one-on-one against Armani who defined poorly, in 66 it was the admitted Abiel Osorio who could not finish a great play and three minutes later it was the same Osorio who could not push the goal with an exact pass that required another appearance from the Millionaire’s goalkeeper.
In the last minute it was Vélez who could have left with a greater advantage after Osorio won a duel against Enzo Pérez and took a shot that hit the crossbar.
