COPA LIBERTADORES: River Plate & Lanus advance to Quarters


Hey everyone,

It was a good night for futbol Argentino last night.  River Plate advanced to the quarter finals despite last night’s 1-1 second-leg draw in the Monumental to Guarani.  Lucas ALARIO scored the winner for River. Lanus claimed a 2-1 aggregate victory as well thanks to Jose SAND’S 85th minute winner against visiting The Strongest. Both teams become the first two teams to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores.

River Plate will find out who they will play in the quarter finals today in the deciding match between Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro and Bolivian club Jorge Wilstermann.  Lanus will play the winner of Thursday’s San Lorenzo vs Emelec match.

River Plate have won the Libertadores three times: 1986, 1996, and 2015.

Here are the goals:








  1. In other news , biglia will surely not partake with our squad for the next 2 qualifiers due to his thigh strain which is expected to recover only after a month.

  2. I was wonder where Gallardo will find a place for all the midfielders: ENzo, Ponzio, Rojas, Pity, Nacho. Pity and Nache were played as wingers.

  3. I’m just going to watch both the game. So many NT and NT ‘ins spe’ players in RIver team but just draw.
