An alternative River Plate team before the imminence of the superclassic round of 16 of the Argentine Cup next Wednesday against Boca Juniors, could not tonight with Huracán, which for the fourth date of the LPF championship ended up taking from the Monumental stadium a A valuable 1-1 draw, especially since he played the last quarter of an hour with one less footballer due to the expulsion of left-back César Ibáñez.

River played with his head in the superclassic on Wednesday against Boca Juniors for the round of 16 of the Argentine Cup and even further, in the first leg of the Libertadores quarterfinals on August 11 at this Monumental stadium against Atlético Mineiro, where today the coach, Marcelo Gallardo, had a mix between starters and substitutes that was not even remotely that sweeping team of the last dates of the local championship.

River came from a string of good wins starting with 2-0 over Argentinos Juniors in La Paternal for Libertadores, plus the two wins with goals included against Unión (4-0) and Lanús (3-0), but today it was very far of those benefits.

It is that the slight relaxation that Matías Suárez suffered against the “garnets” lit all the alarm lights within the River Plate coaching staff regarding the risks that their managers could run in the face of the demanding commitments that lie ahead.

Even when that match was played against Lanús, the date of the superclassic was not yet confirmed, which added an extra element to the preventive work carried out by Marcelo Gallardo and his assistants thinking about this transcendental start of the second half of the year.

It is that from those triumphs mentioned, joy had returned to Núñez because, beyond them, the coach had managed to rebuild once again the bases of the team with three key “touches”: the income of Braian Romero, Bruno Zuculini and Jorge Carrascal.

But despite the fact that these last two were headlines today, the fouls of the aforementioned Suárez, Enzo Pérez, Fabrizio Angileri, the aforementioned Romero, mainly Nicolás De la Cruz, and Paulo Díaz, who had to withdraw from the field prematurely due to an injury similar to that of the Cordoba striker, just after half an hour of the first half, they felt too much in the structure of the local team.

And Huracán, with an irregular start in the competition and knowing his own limitations, then dedicated himself to playing his game, trying to be severe on the mark in the midfield and looking in the counterattack for the way that would lead him to the vicinity of the defended goal. by Franco Armani.

In that game scheme the visitor felt quite comfortable and went to the locker room for the halftime break without going through major shocks.

And he even came back even better, since before the quarter of an hour he was fine in a counter and “Mosquito” Nicolás Silva defined left-handed and with a corner touch, to put those led by Frank Kudelka ahead.

Then his colleague Gallardo decided to go back to the sources and sent Romero, De la Cruz and Angileri to the field simultaneously, later adding José Paradela, and with it, plus the expulsion of César Ibáñez for an iron to the former Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata , the field leaned towards the goal of Marcos Díaz, who quickly became a figure in the face of the continuous “millionaire” attacks.

Until 40 minutes later, from going to the source so much, the Hurricane pitcher broke after a precise cross from Angileri that Romero connected to the net with a precise header that left Diaz stopped.

River continued pressing obviously in the regular five minutes and the same amount of time that the referee Facundo Tello discounted, but between the visiting goalkeeper and a very applied defense although too close to him, they managed to maintain the tie and then, three days before superclassic, River resembled Boca at least in the result obtained in the local championship this Sunday. both tied.
