Demichelis Leads River Plate to Victory in Superclassic
Salomon Rondon’s precise shot, rebounding off Enzo Pérez’s strike, secured the victory for River Plate against Boca Juniors in the Copa de la Liga. Martin Demichelis played a crucial role in leading his team to a 2-0 win. Demichelis successfully read the game as predicted by Jorge Almirón, allowing his team to dominate the first half and make effective substitutions. Enzo Diaz, who came on as a substitute, sealed the match with a goal. However, the celebrations have just begun.

Demichelis’ Impact on River Plate
Demichelis’ third encounter with Boca Juniors came at a crucial moment for River Plate. After five years without a win at Boca’s home ground and a three-month winless streak in away matches, the victory brought much-needed relief to the club. River Plate had been facing a series of disappointing results, including eliminations from the Copa Argentina and Copa Libertadores, as well as some tensions within the squad. However, Demichelis turned the tide in their favor.
The 42-year-old coach decided to skip the usual post-match press conference and allowed the players to speak for themselves. Players like Nicolás de la Cruz and Leandro González Pirez expressed their joy and satisfaction with the victory. Young talents Esequiel Barco and Enzo Diaz also shared their excitement.

Celebrations and Future Plans
The celebrations continued in the dressing room, with Enzo Pérez and Pity Martínez leading the way. The team even dedicated a special tribute to the coaching staff. As a reward, the players were given Monday and Tuesday off after their Superclassic victory. River Plate will face Talleres at home on October 8th in the Copa de la Liga.
Off the field, River Plate is also focused on social initiatives. The club, under the leadership of Marcelo Gallardo, has launched a campaign called “Dueños del Superclásico” (Owners of the Superclassic) on social media. With 13 points in the Zona A standings, River Plate is currently leading the pack. The team hopes to continue their success in the upcoming superclassic matches as they aim for the bicampeonato.
