River Plate, reigning champion of the Professional League, is still in the race for another Olympic return in 2023. In a dramatic match, with a crazy ending, they beat Belgrano 2-1 at the Mario Kempes Stadium in Córdoba and got into the top four of the Copa de la Liga Profesional while waiting for the winner of the duel between Racing and Rosario Central. Salomón Rondón and Facundo Colidio, in stoppage time, scored the goals for Martín Demichelis' team. Lucas Passerini, meanwhile, scored the temporary equalizer for the Pirates, who suffered with a VAR error for a millimeter offside by Franco Jara.

The first half was very tight, with a River that searched and searched but the only thing they found was headaches due to the defensive oversights that Belgrano did not know how to capitalize on. In the second half, the process of the match was similar. And the Pirates got to the goal through Franco Jara, after another defensive inattention by the Millonario, but the play was disallowed for an offside at the beginning of the play.

However, when it was at its worst, River found the lead thanks to an appearance by Venezuelan Salomón Rondón, who anticipated a cross from Enzo Díaz with a header and, benefited from a deflection in Matías Moreno, to beat the resistance of Nahuel Losada.

River was close to the second, as they prowled Losada's goal with danger. However, with 10 minutes to go, Belgrano found the equalizer with a brutal header from Passerini that gave Armani no chance after a precise cross from Lencioni that surprised the entire Millonario defense. Assistant Pablo Gualtieri had raised the flag, but the VAR this time gave the right to the Pirate who celebrated with everything.

It seemed that the match was going straight to penalties, but River continued to look with Pity Martínez, already on the field, in the lead. Thus, in the third minute of stoppage time, Demichelis' team had their reward. A move down the left was built by Barco and Enzo Díaz, who went all the way to the back and sent a low cross that found Facundo Colidio. The former Tigre scored first time against the near post and not only scored his first goal at the Millonario, but it was the winning goal that puts him in the semifinals.
