Although River won, liked and thrashed at the Monumental Stadium and beat Patronato 4-0, the victory left a bittersweet flavor due to Felipe Peña Biafore’s injury as soon as the game started. When nothing had happened yet, the defender threw himself to the ground after having made a turn that caused severe pain in his knee. Automatically, the transmission camera captured Peña’s face and he started to cry.
The doctors cart entered and disconsolate, the native of Pehuajó left the court on a stretcher and fearing the worst: a new ligament injury in the knee, because between 2016 and 2017 playing in the Millionaire’s Inferiors he had already suffered two cruciate ligament tears on the left knee and this time the injury is on the right, the one that was healthy.
Peña’s medical report
As reported by River, Felipe Peña suffered a severe right knee sprain And tomorrow morning studies will be done to find out if the ligament is compromised and should be operated on, or if rehabilitation can begin without the need for surgery.
