River’s 1-0 win over San Lorenzo on Sunday, was hard fought at Estadio Pedro Bidegain. San Lorenzo were looking for a victory following a disappointing 0-0 draw with Colón in their previous game. River had lost their previous match against Banfield. San Lorenzo are now in 11th place, with 27 points from 20 matches, while River sit in 8th, with 29 points from 20.

River started strongly in the first half, when Emanuel Mammana gave them the lead just before half-time, ending the first half 1-0. Both teams unable to deliver anything further, the score remained at 1-0 at full time.

Substitutions for San Lorenzo included Andres Vombergar, Ivan Leguizamon, Agustin Martegani and Nicolas Blandi for Adam Bareiro, Agustin Giay, Ezequiel Cerutti and Malcom Braida, respectively. River brought on Agustin Palavecino, Matias Suárez, Miguel Angel Borja, Tomas Pochettino and Javier Pinola, to replace Santiago Simon, Lucas Beltran, Pablo Solari, Ezequiel Barco and Nicolás De La Cruz.

The referee booked Adam Bareiro, Ezequiel Cerutti, Federico Gattoni and Ivan Leguizamon from San Lorenzo. River had the worst of it though, with Pablo Solari, Enzo Perez, Marcelo Herrera, Miguel Angel Borja and Matias Suárez seeing yellow, and Marcelo Herrera (2 yellow cards) then sent off with a red.

San Lorenzo will next play Lanús away, with River facing Talleres Córdoba at home.
