Alario hands River Plate victory over Millonarios in Florida (VIDEO)


Lucas Alario’s third-minute goal earned River Plate an opening preseason victory against Colombian side Millonarios in the Florida Cup.

There was no time for River’s new look three-man defence to be tested before Sebastián Driussi and Lucas Alario picked up where they had left off in 2016. Alario nutmegged a defender on halfway before exchanging passes with his strike partner and slotting the ball into the bottom corner with some of the 5,000-plus crowd still getting to their seats.

Millonarios will certainly feel they did enough to get back into the game but were unable to find a breakthough and as the friendly clash progressed and both sides made several changes, any real fluency was lost.

River will now face São Paulo on Thursday at the Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg.

River Plate  1 – 0  Millonarios
