(ESPN.com) – River crushed Colón 4-0 this Saturday in Santiago del Estero and won the Champions Trophy, in a match that had Julián Álvarez, author of two goals, as the exclusive figure.
The team led by Marcelo Gallardo had to fight a lot in the first half before a good approach from the rival coach, Eduardo Domínguez. But Álvarez appeared, who is going through a tremendous moment.
The striker, sought after by several top teams in Europe, gave his team the advantage over the end of that first stage.
And then he was in charge of sealing the victory, with a new goal 13 minutes into the second half.
There the resistance of Columbus ended, who tried the comeback but ended up exposing a lot. Something that, against a rival like River, is very dangerous.
Thus came the goals of Benjamin Rollheiser and Jorge Carrascal.
