River was more in the first half, in which it started and finished better than a Central that at times managed to match the actions and not suffer the intensity of the Millionaire.
Although Marcelo Gallardo's team pressed and was always dangerous in attack, it was difficult to find clarity to generate clear situations and only at 37, with a cross shot of Matias Suarez after an assistance of Exequiel Palacios, he was close to opening the marker.
Central also had its chance before the break in a run from the middle of the court of Claudio Riano, who did not arrive with strength to define against Franco Armani. The play started with a mistake by Lucas Martinez Quarta, a warning of what would happen a while later.
Is that the minute of the complement, Martinez Quarta was wrong at the start, the ball drifted in Lucas Gamba and the forward did not fail against Armani. Surprise in the Monumental.
River was a gale in search of equality, Central endured it as he could. Gallardo moved the bank. First, the coach sent Juan Fernando Quintero for Nicolas de la Cruz and then changed the offensive pair: in Lucas Pratto and Ignacio Scocco, outside Suarez and a little participatory Radamel Santos Borre.
