Summary

10:34 PM12 days ago

Is River starting off on the right foot?

The match began with River and its control of the ball in the Deportivo Táchira field, seeking to open spaces through lateral passes with the defenders to find Borja with crosses into the area. For his part, Táchira hoped to take advantage of a mistake in River's departure and also sought to counterpunch. As time went by, River lost intensity, while Táchira got closer and closer to the rival area, especially through set pieces, which generated more danger towards the end of the first half.
In the second half, River continued with possession of the ball, but still had a hard time finding space. Echeverri's entry gave River an additional boost, becoming bolder and with more ways to penetrate Táchira's defense. It was precisely with a shot from Echeverri that Borja managed to assist Boselli, who, with a rebound in his face, scored the first goal for the Argentine team. Then, Fonseca surprised with a great goal from almost the center of the field, which put the lead at 0-2, a result that remained until the end of the game.

Analysis of the first half

River started the game with control of the ball, trying to open the wings with the full-backs to find Borja in the area with crosses. However, as time went by, the pace of the game slowed down and River was forced to retreat, making it difficult for the ball to reach Borja in danger. Meanwhile, Deportivo Táchira sought to take advantage of the counterattacks and errors in River's exit. Towards the end of the first half, Táchira intensified its pressure, especially on set pieces, thus finishing with a better performance compared to River. The Argentine team showed a lack of a defined game idea, resorting mainly to crosses and balls, which Táchira knew how to take advantage of by seeking to force stopped ball situations.
