In the Monumental Stadium of Lima, was Saint Erased the one who gave the advantage to River Plate, but the push of the pupilos of Jorge Jesus equalised the strengths after the rest and gave step to a velocísimo doublet of Gabriel Barbosa that sentenced the meeting in the injury time.

The duel was an authentic game of chess, and the first threats were for the ones of Marcelo Gallardo. The 'doll' knew very well to what confronted , and to base of intensity and hardness achieved to brake to a dangerous group by his brilliant offensive capacity. During the greater part of the first time attained to contain to the 'mengao', and an opportunity in the zone of punishment sufficed to show that his were smart to win.

A theft advanced, an opening and a centre raso that surprisingly happened between three footballers, before arriving to a penalty spot where Saint Erased finished it with the soul. Exequiel Palaces could bend the income with a shot from the distance that went out licking the stick, before the 'rubro-black' began to grow. In spite of the effort of both squares, the differences were minimum before the go through changing rooms.

'Gabigol' Decides in an end of crazy

The Argentinians had the party in the pocket, but in the resumption checked that the Brazilians had not said his last word. It jumped Diego Ribas to the terrain of game and his football improved, although the 'millionaire' resisted to deliver the control. Franco Armani kept them by up with a paradón to Everton, but little by little went bending the field and his goal began to be dangerously rondada.

River could kill the final to the against, but forgave and allowed that the ones of Rio de Janeiro had a last bullet. With more pride and prowess that clarity were advancing metres, and could arrive alive to an injury time of crazy where finish heaving the Glass. At all it did to presage that the leading centre, quite turn# off, would be decisive, but two zarpazos sufficed to do him go in in the history.

Gabriel Barbosa did honour to his nickname of 'Gabigol' and solved the crash with the fastest doublet of always, in which it sealed targets in the minute 89 and in the 92. If the first of his so many already was a blow for his opponent -and this that only had to push the spherical-, his fight in the second, that defined of left-handed, supposed an explosion of jubilation for his. It is the magic of the Libertadores.
