With Franco Armani as a figure, River tied 1-1 in his visit to Fortaleza in Brazil at the Castelao stadium for the fourth date of Group F of the Copa Libertadores. Argentine striker Silvio Romero, 5 minutes into the opening stage, put Fortaleza ahead, but Enzo Fernández leveled it at 17 from a penalty after a foul in the area on Tomás Pochettino.
In a first half plagued with intensity and in which both teams avoided inhabiting the middle of the field, the locals had a string of clear situations but Armani, through great interventions that made him a figure, avoided the second goal in his goal .
Already in the complement, the “Millionaire” grew in dominance but lowered the dynamics of the game, with fewer approaches to the goals, and a well-deserved equality was sealed in one.
With this result, River is still at the top of its group with 10 units but has not yet sealed its classification to the round of 16, since Fortaleza has four points and is third behind Colo Colo from Chile (6) and ahead of Alianza Lima from Peru (0), who face each other tonight, in the absence of two dates for the closing of the first phase of the contest.
