At the moment when Excursionistas was hit by Franco Armani's saved penalty, the midfielder hit him again with an almost knockout blow. After a rebound inside the area, Mastantuono entered the six-yard box and volleyed the ball into the back of the net.
Of course the joy of the driver was total and was reflected in his face. In addition, the fans added another reason to celebrate and it was a special shout as it was the little gem. With this goal, Mastantuono became the youngest player to score an official goal with the River shirt: 16 years, five months and 25 days. The one who held this record was Javier Saviola.
This goal was fundamental to direct River's victory and win in peace against a rival who made it very difficult.
