The footballing level shown by River Plate throughout this season in the Argentine Professional League is impressive and he already has the title in his pocket with the categorical win that he has given Racing Club. The last score came from the feet of Braian Romero, who finished his double.
About 77 minutes, the ‘Academy’ tried to come out with the ball dominated from their field, leaving many spaces in their own field. Little by little, Marcelo Gallardo’s team went ahead to pressure and Lucas Orbán decided to opt for an individual movement, with which he beat Julián Álvarez.
However, the hitch was a bit long and Jorge Carrascal appeared to prevent him from advancing: he blocked the clearance with his body. Immediately, the Colombian midfielder went in search of the ball to take advantage of the numerical advantage that River Plate had already generated and performed a luxury control.
After leaving the ball dead just on the line of the area, he made a pass to the left, where Braian Romero arrived. The forward showed a lot of calm and defined with a subtle touch the left post of goalkeeper Gabriel Arias, who could not do anything despite his great stretch.
The partial result leaves River Plate at the top of the Argentine Professional League with a total of 52 points, taking 12 ahead of Defensa y Justicia y Talleres. If history is not modified, Marcelo Gallardo’s men will be champions, being mathematically unattainable in the absence of three dates. For its part, Racing Club is in box 16 with only 26 units.
