River Plate claim the Copa Campeonato with victory over San Lorenzo (VIDEO)


Less than a week since capturing the Torneo Final, River Plate last night were also crowned Copa Campeonato Champions. A 1-0 win in San Luis over Torneo Inicial winners, San Lorenzo meant River will play in the Copa Sudamericana 2014 and will play against the winners of the Copa Argentina for the Supercopa.

First half substitute, Germán Pezzella’s 73rd minute header was the match winner and with San Lorenzo’s players showing signs of weariness, following their busy season with Torneo Final and Copa Libertadores matches, they were unable to get back in the game.

River Plate  1 – 0  San Lorenzo
