With injuries, suspended and various complications? There is no problem. The River of this local tournament seems determined to keep it regardless of the obstacles it has to face. At least that was made clear yesterday in the difficult field of Banfield with the victory by 1 to 0 and the certainty that he will continue at the top for one more date, no matter what Talleres does tomorrow against Atlético.
In total there were seven casualties compared to the team that had just won nothing less than the Superclásico. And even so, with several youth and regular substitute players, he managed to win in a complicated redoubt.
The goal was a sample of what the game was going to cost: finally it was from a Banfield player (Gustavo Canto) against his own fence. A little early (17 minutes into the first half) was enough to ensure victory.
Marcelo Gallardo knows that his only pending account is the local tournament and because of how he goes through this passage of the championship, he seems totally determined not to let him go, regardless of the competitors.
One of them could be Boca, who was beaten from defeat a week ago and yesterday he started his game against Lanús with some of that downturn. He started losing (Ignacio Malcorra), but turned it around with goals from Marcelo Weigandt, Agustín Almendra and Luis Vásquez So, at least, he remains expectant. If we talk about competitors, we could say that Independiente is playing its last chances today to be one of them. From 19, you will receive Gymnastics. The other two games for today will be the following: from 2:30 p.m., Arsenal-Godoy Cruz and from 4:45 p.m., San Lorenzo-Colón.
