Argentine League Cup: this is how River Plate’s group A is defined

River Plate crossed the penultimate date of the Argentine League Cup in the group of qualifiers for the quarterfinals, thanks to a new double from Miguel Borja, Colombian scorer.

In Zone A, Millonario suffered at home, but beat Rosario Central 2-1 with goals from Miguel Ángel Borja, the tournament’s top scorer with 12.

River was in third place with 24 points, one less than Barracas Central, which beat Instituto 3-2, and two less than the leader Argentinos Juniors, who tied 0-0 with Vélez Sarsfield on Friday.

Fourth place belongs to Talleres de Córdoba with 23 points, which tied 1-1 with Independiente Rivadavia de Mendoza.

Fourth place goes to Carlos Tevez’s Independiente, who narrowly won at home 0-1 against Banfield on Friday.

The last day will define the eight classified for the quarterfinals of this Professional League Cup, which last year established Rosario Central as champion.


According to Gastón Edu, a TyC Sports journalist, these are the scenarios for River and the other members of group A of the League Cup.

If he wins or draws on the last day, the Millionaire will definitely advance to the next stage. He would only be eliminated if Vélez Sarsfield loses and wins and there is no equality between Independiente and Talleres.

Independiente can qualify if they win and Talleres will advance if they win or draw, as long as Vélez does not win. Meanwhile, the Liniers team does not depend on itself, since it depends exclusively on victory. If they manage to win, they need to not add three Rivers or a tie between Rojo and the ‘T’. The salvation for El Fortín is that they discount a five-goal difference or that Barracas falls by a landslide against Argentinos Juniors.
