River Plate visits Binacional de Peru

, toned after the very good draw achieved as a visitor against San Pablo in the resumption of the

2020 Copa Libertadores


The Millionaire was outlined for a possible classification to the round of 16, which he will be closer to achieving if he obtains a good result in his passage through the National Stadium of Lima.

For River it will be the last game outside of Argentina in Group D this will

be played at 9:30 p.m. (Argentine time) with live televising on ESPN 2 (channels 103 from Cablevisión and 623 from DirecTV)


Marcelo Gallardo is close to qualifying for the round of 16.

The return to competition for Marcelo Gallardo's team took place with a good performance at the Morumbí stadium in San Pablo, where the 2-2 tie did not correspond to the game shown by the Argentines after six months of inactivity, and Against a rival who, on the other hand, had already played 14 official matches.

Núñez's team has four points in the group, thanks to the draw in Brazil and the 8-0 win against Binacional at the Monumental stadium.

That amount of goals allows him to take a light advantage of San Pablo, who also has four units but is third in the group that leads the Liga Deportiva Universitaria de Quito with six.

🛬 We are in Peru!

Deportivo Binacional

, meanwhile, did not make a good comeback as it fell 1-0 in Lima with Liga de Quito, last Wednesday, and was in last position with three units.

The current champion of Peruvian soccer lost - by decision of Conmebol - the location in the dreaded height of Juliaca (3,840 meters above sea level, where San Pablo went and lost 2-1) and needs to win again to aspire to pass round in his first participation in the Libertadores.

"We feel harmed. It seems that something is happening that they do not allow us to play in Juliaca. We definitely lose something if we do not play at the height," said coach Javier Arce, who returned to the club in early September to replace Colombian Flabio Torres.

Conmebol's decision, backed by a report from the Peruvian sports authorities on the health situation of the Andean city,

was good news for River as it avoided playing at high altitude

, where the Peruvian team obtained its only victory:

2 -1 against San Pablo in his debut in the Libertadores


With this new scenario, the Millionaire will go in search of a victory in Lima that would pave the way to the round of 16, since then he will have two games as a local.

The venue, however, will not be total since due to the works in the Monumental stadium, he

will move to Avellaneda to play at the Independiente stadium, the Libertadores de América


Come on, Powerful!

Our team is ready to face date 4 of the Conmebol @Libertadores.

This Tuesday, September 22 we have a new challenge in the most important tournament in South America.

We face @ RiverPlate. # DaleBi #PorElSur 💪💪🔵⚪

Despite the aforementioned lack of official competition, River proved to be physically and soccer-oriented to face a new challenge and the idea of ​​the Gallardo Doll would be to repeat the training he used at the Morumbí stadium in San Pablo.

The good news for the coaching staff is that he added a new alternative for the attack with the recovery of Lucas Pratto, who overcame a strain in his right hamstring.

The only casualty will continue to be the defender Milton Casco,

who tested positive for Covid-19 just over a week ago

and could only reappear for Thursday 30's game against San Pablo.

Pratto has recovered from a muscle injury and is available to play in Lima.

After a break with many institutional complications, Deportivo Binacional was only able to play the Peruvian tournament again on August 25 after having lost the points of the first commitment to Alianza Lima for violating the biosecurity protocol established by the local soccer Federation.

After another three games without winning (one loss and two draws), Colombian Flabio Torres resigned and his predecessor Javier Arce returned, the coach who led Poderoso del Sur to the local title in 2019.

Shortly after one year of the final against Flamengo, River returns to play in Peru where it maintains a good record: of 14 games, it won six, tied four and lost the same amount if the fall with the Rio team is taken into account.

Peruvian midfielder Andy Polar beats Ecuadorian Pablo Labrin in Binacional's defeat against Liga de Quito.
