The midfielder left behind a tear and scored the goal that opened the scoring against Banfield.

On his way to the last 16 of the Copa Libertadores, Marcelo Gallardo needs his best soldiers more than ever. In this context, the owner of the emblematic River 10 is one of the most important. And it was a great night for Ignacio Fernández, because he returned recovered from his tear and scored the goal that allowed the team to unlock the game against Banfield.

The talented midfielder had suffered a tear in his left anterior rectus two weeks earlier. With the approval of the medical staff, River’s coach chose to shoot him so as not to take him “raw” next Tuesday, when the team faces Paranaense for the maximum continental competition.

And the game not only offered Nacho the chance to return and begin to take flight, but also to begin to distort an actuality that had not been entirely happy.

In fact, a punctilious panning -and also judging by what a man of his hierarchy can offer- allowed us to assess that Fernández was one of the weakest points of the millionaire team since football returned to action after the long months of stopping the product of the Covid-19 pandemic.

For that reason, more than anything, that outrageous scream after sneaking down the left side and finding that ball, driven by Robert Rojas after several headers, which seemed to have a rabbit inside in the Banfield area.

The steering wheel stretched, hit the ball with his left foot before the attempt to start a Facundo Altamirano who was halfway there and opened the account of a complicated game for River, which would thus lead to a victory that leaves him much better positioned to qualify for the championship phase.

The celebration was the evidence that the player knew he was in debt to the team, to the people and to himself. Even his recent performances had been provoking the reactions of many fans who, in the absence of being able to go to the field, were downloaded on social networks with some criticism (some in the form of a joke and meme, others more seriously) towards his humanity.

With the mission accomplished, Nacho would leave the field at 16 minutes of the second half (Enzo Pérez entered his place); It was part of Gallardo’s plan to give him 60 minutes of filming to get up to speed. Everything had gone well.

Now, it will be time to think about the Brazilian team and dream again of those heroic Copa nights. With a key soldier recovered.
