The second Copa Sudamericana preliminary round in El Monumental on Wednesday night was Ariel Ortega’s fourth debut for the club, and things seemed to be going swimmingly when Cristian Fabbiani scored a cracker just before the hour. That was all overshadowed, though, when Eduardo Salvio popped up with ten minutes to spare to equalise – then scored the winner in stoppage time. River have it all to do in El Sur, and you can see the goals here.
Copa Sudamericana preliminary round, Weds 19th August 2009: River Plate 1 – 2 Lanús
So, can we suggest Lanus will be at the top of the league standings by mid season? I think they are by far the youngest overall (average age) team in the league with godoy cruz and huracan not too far behind.
