River defeated Newell’s 1-0 a few minutes after the end of the game for round 12 of the Argentine Professional League. After a counterattack from the ‘Millionaire’ team, Solari would take the opportunity to open the scoring and seal the victory at the Marcelo Bielsa Stadium.
River Plate won 1-0 with a goal in the fifth minute of injury time in a very difficult match in Rosario against Newell’s on Sunday for the twelfth date, and extended a winning streak that consolidates it as the undisputed leader of the 2023 Argentine League.
The ‘millionaire’ team suffered in several passages against a combative rival, who put up a fight in all sectors, and who could have even won it in a shot from Iván Gómez that hit the crossbar, when goalkeeper Franco Armani was already beaten.
But in one of the last actions of the night at minute 90+5, a fast and accurate counter-attack with three touches was born from a corner kick in favor of Newell’s, against a poorly stopped Rosario defense, which culminated in the assist of Esequiel Barco to Pablo Solari who defined before the empty goal because the local goalkeeper Hoyos was very advanced.
Thus, River now reaches 30 points and is seven points ahead of his guard San Lorenzo, who later faced Talleres in Córdoba. In addition, he extended his great moment to seven consecutive wins in the domestic tournament, all without conceding goals, so he stretched his unbeaten record to 639 minutes.
