There was surprise at the close of the fourth date of the Professional League Cup. Argentinos Juniors beat River 1-0 over the end of the match with a goal by Gabriel Florentín from outside the area. At the Monumental, the Millionaire sought to stretch his good walk after conquering the Argentine Super Cup last Thursday, after imposing himself forcefully on Racing. However, it had no clarity in attack and that was a cost that ended up paying dearly. Núñez’s team began starring and, after 6 minutes, had the first clear chance of the night through Milton Casco, who crashed a header in the crossbar. However, the Bug did not stay and responded from the feet of Gabriel Avalos and Gabriel Hauche, who fired a heavy shot that Franco Armani held to avoid the goal.
As River continued to find no way to break the zero, Marcelo Gallardo reached the substitutes’ bench and for the add-on made changes and sent Jonatan Maidana, Agustín Palavecino and Rafael Santos Borre to the court, trying to achieve more defensive strength and offensive aggression. Although the Millionaire settled on the rival field, he was exposed to the against the la Paternal team. And that’s how those led by Gabriel Milito found the key to the triumph. Within 45 minutes, Florentín made an exquisite finish from outside the area that was stamped in the upper left corner of Armani, who flew but could not tackle it. This was Argentinos Juniors’ first win so far in the tournament. Meanwhile, River, who next week will play the Superclassic against Boca, suffered his second defeat.
