Party night for River at the Monumental Stadium. The team led by Martín Demichelis overcame a difficult rival as Libertad always was, qualified for the round of 16 and also got a ticket for the 2025 Club World Cup. With one game left to close the group stage, there is still one goal to achieve.

El Millonario will seek to be the best first in the entire Copa Libertadores to ensure that they define all instances head-to-head at home, regardless of the rival. That is why the victory against Libertad was fundamental (the draw qualified them but distanced them from their goal of being the best leader) and that is how the general table remained.

How is the general table of the Copa Libertadores

Although several matches corresponding to the fifth date still need to be played, River almost looks down on everyone. With the victory, Millo reached 13 points and is placed first in the general table of the group stage: Talleres de Córdoba has the same points and came in second place. Borja’s second goal allowed River to surpass the T in goal difference.
