Three goals in four minutes: Simón and Álvarez made it 6-0 for River vs. Alliance | VIDEO

River Plate has impressive offensive power and shows off its qualities in the match against Alianza Lima, for the sixth date of Group F of the Copa Libertadores. In four minutes, Julián Álvarez scored two more goals (completing a repóker) and Santiago Simón scored one, to decree the partial 6-0 of the ‘Millionaires’.

The clock exceeded 52 minutes and those led by Marcelo Gallardo put together a wall entering the opposite area. Precisely, the ‘Spider’ starred in the action, in collaboration with Ezequiel Barco, and although he could not define, the rebound benefited Simón, who finished at will in the smallest rectangle.

And at 54 ‘, Alianza Lima tried to lower the intensity of the match, with short touches in their own territory, but there were no good results. Due to the pressure, Jefferson Portales was forced to go back to goalkeeper Ángelo Campos and he had poor control, which led to the steal by Álvarez, who defined without problems.

The blow was very hard for the ‘Blue and Whites’, although the story had not ended. After reaching the middle of the field, Elías Gómez leaked a powerful pass for Julián and he had no difficulty defining in front of the goalkeeper (56′).

Alliance Lima vs. River Plate: the previous

The ‘Millionaires’ secured their qualification for the round of 16 of the international tournament by thrashing Colo Colo 4-0 last day. With 13 points, he will be first in his zone no matter what happens against the Blue and Whites.

Those of Matute, for their part, have no chance of continuing in the race in the Libertadores nor of getting a place in the Copa Sudamericana, but they will still seek to say goodbye to the contest with a positive result. In addition, they are on the rise by chaining seven victories in the Opening Tournament of League 1.

It should be remembered that, in the first leg between River vs. Alianza Lima, at the National Stadium in Lima, Marcelo Gallardo’s pupils won the victory thanks to a solitary goal from Matías Suárez.
