In the Monumental, River and Boca no differences were drawn and matched without goals in the Superclassic that was played for the date 5 of the SuperLeague. Then Gustavo Alfaro and Marcelo Gallardo did their respective analysis of the match, what did Alfaro say?
“It was a very intense classic, against a rival who comes in a very high peak of confidence. It helps us to measure ourselves in the face of what is going to be the Libertadores cup series, to see the things we have and the things that we have to correct,” Alfaro said.
For his part, Esteban Andrada, who today broke the record of fence in Boca that Antonio Roma had, argued that while River dominated the game, he only had to tackle a difficult shot. “The balance is positive, sometimes the opponent pulls the ball out, but we were able to hold it. It wasn’t our best game, but I just plugged a hard one, then it was all cross-centres and balls stopped, without danger,” said the goalkeeper.
“The game leaves me with a bitter taste because it clearly looked like there was a top team in the game.”
In the same vein as the coach, Ignacio Fernández, who was in doubt to play until the last moment due to a muscle discomfort that dragged from the match against Cerro Porteño for the Copa Libertadores, stated that “they came to look for the draw, not proposed game. We were the only team that wanted to win.” In this note:
