Marcelo Díaz was the great hero of Racing in the classic Avellaneda. When his team played with nine players, the Chilean appeared in the middle of the area and defined calmly to score the victory goal against Independiente.
However, the Academy flyer was also news for eating a banana in the middle of the game. When he averaged the second part, the Chelo approached the bank of substitutes and consumed a fruit to gain potassium.
"You had to eat the banana because at any time the cramps came from the effort we were doing on the court. They saw everything, but I didn't have time to eat the banana quietly," said the Chilean, in dialogue with Fox Sports.
In the same line, he added: "I was so involved in the game that all I wanted was to recover energy with a banana, and drinking water too. And keep running, which was what mattered most at the time."
For his part, Diaz told his happiness for the goal against Red: "I shouted a lot, the one I shouted the most with what I did in Hamburg. Making a goal on this court, in a classic, was something beautiful. The stadium rumbled from an impressive way. "
"These are times when time stops. You just had to make the best decision. I saw that I had no one and that allowed me to control it. On another occasion I sent it to the rostrum. I don't know if it was the intention that would happen between legs, but put it there, "he closed.
