River stumbled against Banfield and put his presence in check in the quarterfinals

For matchday 12 of zone A of the Professional League Cup, Banfield defeated River 1-0, at Florencio Sola, and made it difficult for him to qualify for the quarterfinals. Despite a first half in which the Millionaire was widely superior, the Drill overcame and Juan Álvarez gave him the victory.

The game can be divided into two: the first part was for River, the second was for Banfield. Regarding the initial stage, the group led by Marcelo Gallardo was active thanks to the interventions of Rafael Borré, Nicolás de la Cruz and Benjamín Rollheiser. His biggest problem was inefficiency, which would later pay off in the add-on.

Precisely the second 45 minutes had the Drill as the protagonist. Those led by Javier Sanguinetti overcame, they were once again the team that knew how to be in the final of the Diego Maradona Cup and took advantage of the chance that they could not miss.

At 18 minutes, Juan Álvarez took advantage of a confusion from the River defense and scored, after a bad from Paulo Díaz and eluding Franco Armani. After the goal, the Millionaire could not turn the result, despite the offensive income of Federico Girotti, Agustín Palavecino and José Paradela.

With this result, River was badly placed in the standings in its goal of qualifying for the quarterfinals. If Racing defeats Central Córdoba and Estudiantes defeat Platense, it would stop depending on itself and expect a miracle on the last day of the regular phase of the LPF Cup.

In the next day, River will receive Aldosivi; while Banfield will visit Godoy Cruz, in Mendoza.
