River lost 2 valuable points

River Plate came across a solid performance by Marcelo Barovero in Banfield's goal, who practically stopped all of the equipo millonario goal attempts. Despite the dominance of Núñez's team, the goal of the match came surprisingly after an error in the release of the ball. Throughout the match, River insisted with constant crosses and attacks, managing to score thanks to an action by Solari. Borja's absence was felt in the area, leaving River without a clear reference to realize the opportunities generated.

For its part, Banfield remained firm in defense and managed to take a valuable point, although it continues without achieving victory in the championship. This equality leaves River with a bittersweet taste, having lost the lead in the table against Independiente and failing to secure the three points in their own stadium. Despite the clear dominance in statistics such as shots, shots on goal, possession and control of the ball, River could not materialize its superiority on the scoreboard.

Analysis of the first half

The home team has exhibited notable dominance in ball possession, maintaining 67% and passing accuracy of 85%. However, it has not been enough to materialize the goal plays. One of the possible reasons for this lack of precision could be attributed to the absence of their center forward in the area, which has left the team lacking creativity when finishing plays. This deficit is reflected in the low number of shots on goal, with only 7 attempts and only 1 shot on goal.

On the other hand, Banfield has shown defensive solidity by maintaining a line of 4 players in its area, which has made the home team's arrivals significantly difficult. Taking advantage of River's mistakes, Banfield has tried to generate counterattack opportunities, although without success in achieving them, evidenced by the lack of shots on goal, with only 3 attempts in the entire match.
