CR Vasco da Gama vs. River Plate full match

Copa Libertadores 1998

By Pelz0 Comments2886 ViewsPortuguese

For the first time in almost 100 years, Vasco da Gama reached the semi-finals of the Libertadores. The Vascão of Mauro Galvão, Felipe, Pedrinho, Ramon, Donizete Pantera and Luizão featured the return of Carlos Germano from the 1998 WC. The Cruzmaltino would face the powerful River Plate, who had 6 1998 World Cup players (Burgos, Berti - not playing, Gallardo, Juan Pablo Ángel, Celso Ayala and Sarabia). Future Argentinian legend Sorín was improvised in Berti's spot as a midfielder. Ramón Díaz's River was excited with the newly signed striker Pizzi, a member of Spain's 1998 WC National Team and former Barcelona player. The Millonarios would put its top Libertadores goalscorer with 7 goals (Ángel) on the bench, so Pizzi could start this match.
