And the income of Palacios and Di María was productive to give the team air.
Emiliano Martínez (6):
He hardly had a job.
He picked up the centers well and came out with judgment from below.
Nahuel Molina (6):
Very sharp to project and solid to cover your sector.
In the first stage he almost marked the second with a bombshell.
Cristian Romero (7):
Seamless in hand-to-hand, quick to anticipate and strong from above.
He already feels the owner of the defense.
Nicolás Otamendi (5):

Marcos Acuña (6):
He went on the attack with greater fluidity in the second half.
He had a lot of back and forth to help with the recovery.
Rodrigo De Paul (7):
He did not have to run as much to cover Paredes, absent due to injury.
He alternated the ball stopped with Messi and formed a good tandem on the right with his teammate from Udinese.
Guido Rodríguez (8):
He balanced half the court.

Removed and distributed.
And he scored the winning goal with a nice header.
He finished the game pressing on the rival field.
Giovanni Lo Celso (5):
This time he participated less in the game circuit, but each time he did it, he was lucid.
He connected well a couple of times with Messi.
Lionel Messi (8):
With Molina on the outside, he no longer needed to turn so much to the right.
He floated in the middle and with spaces he managed the counter.
And in addition, it had remarkable stacks.
He only lacked the goal.
It culminated without air for all that ran.
Lautaro Martínez (4):
He demanded with the pressure, but in the first half he had a very clear and failed again.
With the free arc he did not take advantage of a rebound.
Nicolás González (6):
Active, fast, overflowing or playing the diagonal to allow the arrival of Acuña.
It was incisive.
Exequiel Palacios (6):
He entered well and handled the ball judiciously.
He generated several fouls.
It was a help wheel for Rodríguez.
Joaquin Correa (4):
He participated very little.
He played 9 between the centrals and that hurt him.
