Punctually on the great triumph in the Monumental, the former Defenders of Belgrano and Racing added: "They are very difficult, complex matches and we knew that they were going to come to us everywhere. River has almost no failures, he doesn't let you play, he presses you high. We had to take advantage of the few we had and have a great collective commitment. And so it happened".
In the end, asked who prefers to win the Libertadores between River and Flamengo, Barbieri did not hesitate: "River, of course. Always in favor of the Argentine teams. "
