In a match which produced two incredible goals, six yellow cards and a great save by Argentina goalkeeper Franco ARMANI saw River Plate win 2-0 against Boca Juniors.
Argentina international Gonzalo MARTINEZ scored one of the goals of the season as he gave River Plate the 1-0 lead. A volley goal beat Boca goalkeeper Agustin ROSSI. However, just minutes after scoring, MARTINEZ had to be substituted off due to an injury.
In what probably should have been a sending off, Colombian Edwin CARDONA elbowed Enzo PEREZ in the face but was given a yellow card and not a red.
The second half saw Boca come off on the strong foot with Dario BENEDETTO being at the end of a Cristian PAVON cross but BENDETTO’s effort went over the goal. Another moment of controversy in the match as River Plate’s Milton CASCO took Cristian PAVON down in the penalty area but the referee did not give the penalty kick.
Lucas PRATTO was replaced up front by Ignacio SCOCCO and just five minutes after coming on, SCOCCO with an absolutely incredible strike double River Plate’s lead.
Franco ARMANI’s goal was tested with the Argentina goalkeeper pulling off a great save to keep his clean sheet.
