Julián Álvarez scores 3 goals for River Plate in 7-0 win vs. Sarmiento


Julián Álvarez scored three goals for River Plate in their 7-0 win vs. Sarmiento.

Álvarez gave Manchester City fans more reasons to be excited about him. With River Plate leading 1-0, the Argentine scored the second, third and sixth goal of the match.

The 22 year old was onto a loose ball after a slip in the Sarmiento back line and he would convert to make it 2-0 to River Plate. A cross into the penalty area would find Álvarez as he would score with predator like instincts to triple River’s lead.

An explosive finish from the striker on the sixth goal as he would release an effort from inside the penalty area into the roof of the goal.


  1. Whenever a team lost 7-0 its obvious that its defense is shit. No matter how great offence of the opponent you can’t win more than 2 goal margin if your opponent is shaky and conceding 7 is beyond shaky. But atleast they didn’t miss much so its a good thing

  2. Not taking anything away from Alvarez or River but Sarmiento’s defense and its goal keeper especially looked extremely poor!!

    • I agree, but this should give the team confidence which has been going through a rough patch and hopefully Alvarez will start to score again in the libertadores

    • Well, that’s irrelevant since most strikers will also play against poor opponents here and there.

      Pele scored 700 goals against prisoners, actors, etc

      • Thats not a bad thing, most top strikers are the ones that miss most chances because they naturally get more than other players because of their positioning or their team creating more for them in general. In the Bundesliga this season Lewandowski has a whopping 32 big chances missed with the next in line having 16. Benzema, Mbappe, and Salah are also top for their leagues
