Tigre vs River Plate Preview: Thrilling Matchup
El Matador had a terrible week as, in addition to being knocked out of the Copa Argentina by a team from a lower division, they barely managed to salvage a point in their visit to Racing Club in the third round of the first division.
This was a somewhat even match, although Racing Club had more possession of the ball, the scoring chances were similar. In both the first and second halves Racing took the lead and then Tigre responded with an equaliser.
Martín Demichelis had a good debut playing his first official match at the Estadio Monumental. However, it was not an easy victory, even though El Millonario dominated the game and had more chances to score than their opponents, Argentinos Juniors opened the scoring in the first half.
The second half was similar to the first, however River Plate had two penalties in their favour which were taken by Miguel Borja and that one was successfully converted. With this victory, River Plate have 6 points from three games.
