Tuesday night, River suffered the biggest win in their history since Conmebol tournaments when they fell 5-1 to fluminense In the janeiro river. This meant a real and unexpected blow for the millionaire, who will now try to recover mentally against Boca, in the Superclásico next Sunday.
The defeat was very relevant, as it complicated the prospects for the millionaire in Group D of the Copa Libertadores, although Sporting Cristal’s victory over The Strongest, after midnight, brought some relief to the team led by Martín Demichelis. In this way, Fluminense has 9 points and an ideal score, while The Strongest, Sporting Cristal and River add 3 points, with the goal difference relegating the Argentines to last position.
As happens on these occasions, the disturbing situation that River is going through internationally has had its rebound on social media, making Núñez’s men a cause for ridicule. Naturally, the charges were led by Fluminense himself and one of his figures, the Brazilian Felipe Melo.
From Flu’s official account they fired River wishing him a “boa viag5m”, with the number 5 casually integrating those words. In another, they used a photo from the SpongeBob series to say, “Good night, millionaires.” And they also used the number 5 to praise their coach, Fernando Diniz, to which they underline “5 reasons to love him”.
But the star of the sold out was Felipe Melo, known for his particular way of living football but also for being a fanatic and avowed Boca fan. The temperamental former Brazilian national soccer player recorded a video that counted to 5 and the next day he recorded himself parodying Francella with his Brazilian version of “Beautiful morning”.
