River Plate vs. Argentinos Juniors: previa
The 1-1 draw in the first leg last week at the Monumental left the series open, but with a minimal advantage for the ‘Bicho’, who will have the home.
While Argentinos will reach a zero draw to enforce as double the visitor’s goal scored by Gabriel Hauche in the first chapter, River must win -by any margin- or draw two or more goals.
The 2021 version of the ‘Millionaire’ team does not have the reliability of other times. To the home draw against Argentinos for the Cup, River added an unexpected defeat, also at home, against Colón de Santa Fe (1-2), for the first date of the First Division Tournament.
Although he played with several substitutes, Marcelo Gallardo’s team was surprised from the start by ‘Sabalero’, who beat him despite playing almost 80 minutes with one less player.
The winner of this key will face in the quarterfinals with the winner of the series between Argentine Boca Juniors and Brazilian Atlético Mineiro, with the possibility of a ‘Superclásico’ in case ‘xeneizes’ and ‘millionaires’ advance.
