River was defeated by San Lorenzo after a controversial penalty
The “Millionaire” lost 1-0 with the “Cyclone”, in the New Gasometer, by the fifth day of the contest.
Julio Buffarini scored a controversial penalty in the 16th minute of the second half.
The controversy was because the referee Dario Herrera did run it a second time, based on the indication of an assistant, who warned that goalkeeper Marcelo Barovero had anticipated.
Barovero was man of the match. The referee hurt River that never knew what to do with the ball and deserved to lose.
