"Today it wasn't good to play well and be eliminated: in the mata-mata you wanted us to win and today we won, so good night," said the coach. In search of the final, the Millonario will have to face Rosario Central.


Martín Demichelis closed the press conference in Cordoba, after River's 2-1 win over Belgrano, in a defiant way. "Today it wasn't good to play well and be eliminated: in the mata-mata you wanted us to win and today we won, so good night." In this way, happy and with a sarcastic smile, the coach left the Mario Kempes stadium, after his team got the pass to the semifinals of the League Cup.

The coach felt that after beating Belgrano he got rid of the stigma of head-to-head after River was eliminated this year with Talleres in the round of 16 of the Copa Argentina and with Inter de Porto Alegre in the round of <> of the Copa Libertadores.

"We have to congratulate Belgrano, who played us on an equal footing and made us an uncomfortable match. We searched for it to the end in spite of the forms. You have to win, and we won," said coach Millonario. And he added: "Belgrano in Cordoba cost River historically. And we were able to get through it."

Meanwhile, on the analysis of the match, Demichelis commented: "The joy of obviously having overcome the quarter-finals. Of course, the three games that have been played so far have not been easy, they ended on penalties and ours was on the limit. Thanks to the attitude of the boys, who didn't give up, with what it means to be a blow when they draw a game like this. The opponent played us a difficult game, but we insisted until the end. There are always things to correct, I say it repeatedly. Even in success there are things to correct. I'm not in the best of moments to make the analysis because of the prematurity of the match, I'll do it in the next few hours."

And about the changes, he explained: "I bet on Kranevitter because Aliendro was booked. Matías in front of the centre-backs gives you balance, we had the centre-backs with a lot of handball. After that, we were in the lead, I put one more centre-back, Colidio came on for Rondón, with the three centre-backs I was sure to mark the two strikers better, who played a great game and I congratulate them. I wanted to press higher with Simon and Enzo Diaz. Football is wonderful and, beyond the ideas that the coach may have, they gave us the draw. I'm glad that Colidio was able to score, I've been insisting for a long time that the goal be opened for him, it's going to be the first of many".
