There was no winner between Boca Juniors and River Plate (1-1) in the clash counting for the 5th day of the Argentine Professional League Cup on the night from Sunday to Monday.
But the poster which regularly holds the entire country in suspense could very well have (or should?) Switch in favor of River Plate in the last moments of the game.
A few seconds from the end of regulation time, on a cross from the right, the ball bounced off Boca Junior defender Carlos Izquierdoz, taking his own goalkeeper in default.
The leather seemed to take the direction of the nets to the great despair of Izquierdoz already taking his head in his hands when a rebound, completely unexpected, came to save his team.
The spirit of Maradona evoked to explain the unusual trajectory of the ball
With an extremely rare retro effect, the ball flirted with the goal line before turning back, as if a supernatural force had prevented it from entering the goal.
An incredible turnaround that some Internet users have not hesitated to attribute to the presence of a superior force and the spirit of a certain… Diego Maradona, who died on November 25th.
An interpretation that has given rise to multiple diversions and montages on social networks.
La figura del superclásico fue Maradona.
