Can River not in the Superliga. There is no case. It does not become addicted. It is difficult for him to get involved, he does not live the local matches with the same intensity as the big nights. Then he clashes with the fervent Saint Lawrence and suffers. Marcelo Gallardo's team saved a draw and stretched their unbeaten record to 25 games. But it can not catch on, it releases points that keep it from potential pointers. He did not win on four dates. He has become accustomed to running backwards in the championship.
And San Lorenzo is not easy to generate football. He does not have too much talent in his players; he has no other like Juan Fernando Quintero, who is able to score another game. Compensates the Cyclone with energy. Last night there were two Barça players for every millionaire player. San Lorenzo fought against this handsome river, which is a criminal in an extra-rodeo. But in the Gasometer no: San Lorenzo won all the divided and brought the heart into every game. With an impulse he took a river that looked heavy. The draw of Nicolás Blandi was the end of Armani's unbeaten streak and an act of justice, because the saints did not deserve to lose. The point, because how the party developed, was eventually appreciated by San Lorenzo.
He is used to drinking for this river Gallardo. And after cozy nights, you know, there is a hangover. It was difficult to clash with Racing by Libertadores, but the cast of Núñez took it out with another almost perfect performance. Then it took him the river Muñeco to leave that victory and he fell asleep to play against San Lorenzo. The teams had different intensities. It was pure pressure on the local and the visit did not react and Nacho Fernandez lost due to a muscle injury. It is true that Cyclone was not attractive, although it was superior. And in the first ten minutes he had two clear with the industrious Nicolás Reniero (the first one had a shortcut to the compact television of Armani).
He did not kill San Lorenzo when he had to, and the river grew. He always attacked on the right, with the tandem Montiel-Quintero. The feeling was unequivocal in the Gasometer: if River was right in the last pass, it would mark. He did not have the lucid Pratto to finish, nor Santos Borré to chop and Juanfer missed some passes. But the danger was latent.
Until the Colombian grabbed behind Elias Pereyra's back, close to where he was looking for Pampa Biaggio, and made an unforgettable goal. It was a nice diagonal with the ball just a few centimeters from the lefthanded booty of the coffee. He did not have to prance: he reached for the good movements of the attackers. The definition was also krak: almost with contempt, right from Navarro, despecio, deadly. As one of those goals that Lionel Messi usually offers in the Spanish competition.
San Lorenzo earned more luck in that first part. But hierarchy and circumstances can explain the results. Armani covered two very good, Jorge Baliño ate a huge penalty from Enzo Pérez (he kicked out with an elbow on a Franco Moyano shot) and Quintero rubbed his chosen lamp.
San Lorenzo remained the same despite the disadvantage in the second half. The Pampa was ambitious and was right with the changes. Gallardo de pop did not work this time: Mora came in with little desire and Pity Martinez about the party. He did everything wrong, including a definition of the right one when he was hand in hand with Navarro. He is never tired of going to San Lorenzo and it is known that everyone who does not leave has a price. Mora gave away a corner and Nico Blandi took advantage of that gift from the Uruguayan. Cyclone did not release his arms and had a reward. There remains joy about the desire that the equipment showed. In River, the old doubts: it does not start in the local tournaments.
