Francesco Armani (6): Boca didn’t worry him too much and when it did, he responded soberly, especially when taking a free kick from Villa in the second half.
Milton helmet (6): He had no issues in branding and contributed his expertise. You hit rock bottom on a couple of occasions in the first half. In the second half he was booked and went off the ledge, which is why Demichelis eliminated him towards the end.
Leandro Gonzalez Pirez (5): Committed an unnecessary offense against Villa away from his goal which earned him a yellow card. He raised a bit in the second half but generally didn’t feel stopped.
Emmanuel Mammana (6): Very correct. Timing and sober to score. Always well located. He had a clean bottom up start.
Enzo Diaz (6): He was constantly coming and going on the left wing. He had a separate duel with Advíncula and with Villa when the Boca forward jumped to that side. He contributed a lot in attack. He too was on the verge of red but he rode well.
Enzo Perez (6): The heart of the river. He played with determination and put his experience into play. He was booked and that affected him a bit but he held on well.
Rodrigo Aliendro (5): It was the first yellow card of the match. He played his spare wheel role for Enzo Pérez but didn’t contribute much in attack. It was Demichelis’ first substitution.
Nicholas DeLa Cruz (6): He always asked for the ball. He tried to play. It didn’t always work out for him, but he tried and tried several shots from outside the box. One of them was a bomb that Romero took from the corner.
Ignacio Fernandez (6): The best of the River in the first half. Clear and precise to play. He had two chances, one with a left foot that Romero took away from him and in the other he ran up speed but he was unable to define and Valentini took the ball away from him.
Esequiel Ship (5): Intermittent and with ups and downs. He overbalanced in some plays but in others he released the ball late.
Luca Beltran (6): Tireless. He ran, he fought, he pivoted. He placed the body and ended up loose and wounded. He lacked more weight in the rival zone.
Paolo Solari (7): Decisive. Determinant. That’s why she was the figurehead of the party. A few minutes after entering, he came close to converting with a definition that hit the post (after a deflection by Valentini) and the penalty with which River beat Boca after Borja converted him was committed.
Miguel Borgia (-): He didn’t qualify but after fighting more than playing, he felt like shouting his goal by taking the penalty in hand and setting it masterfully. He touched the inside of his right foot towards the left post and Romero went to the other.
Agostino Palavecino (-): He didn’t qualify because he didn’t play even more than 20 minutes, but if he had scored it would have been very low due to his lazy attitude of shouting goal at an opponent.
Matias Suarez (-): He came in late and had little attendance.
Roberto Rojas (-): He came on from Casco and defended enthusiastically at the end.
