In the United States, the ones loaded from River to Boca continue and the "madness" by Pity MartínezFebruary 22, 2019
The fans of River do not forget the final won against Boca in the Copa Libertadores 2018. The folklore does not stop and the millionaires continue to remember that famous story of Gonzalo's goal "The Pity" Martinez who sentenced the 3 to 1 at the Bernabéu. Now, with the Argentine in Atlanta United, the loaded ones crossed the border and it is the American club that joined the chicanas, this Thursday, day in which the former number 10 of River had his official debut in his new club.
"New clothing means new wallpaper, I answered below with your name and the number you choose, and we'll adapt the team's wallpaper to you," was what Atlanta United published on its Twitter account. And the River fans took advantage to demonstrate all their ingenuity …

Different users wrote the name and shirt number they wanted as wallpaper. The orders were: "Yvael Third " with the number 31, "Yvael " with the 3 (both referring to the story of Mariano Closs and the result of the final) and "Crazy Pity" with the 10 in the back (by the nickname of the Argentine after scoring a goal in the 2 to 0 against Boca, in the Bombonera, by Superliga 2018).

Such is the revolution of the fans of Atlanta by the Argentine who this Thursday, before the match for the knockout round of the Concachampions against Herediano of Costa Rica, received the players micro singing the famous "Pity Martinez, how crazy that is!", song that is furor in recent times in Argentina.
The match was important for Gonzalo and his club, as it marked the official debut of both in 2019. The whole expectation was obscured with the final result. Is that the performance of the ex River, replaced at 75 minutes by Hector "Tito" Villalba (former San Lorenzo), was not expected and Atlanta did not have a good game in Costa Rica.

The ticos they exceeded by 3 to 1 to those in Georgia, who not only had Pity between the initial 11, but also counted on the other Argentines Ezequiel Barco, Eric Remedi and Leandro González Pirez. Franco Escobar did not play, the former Newell's. In Atlanta also officially debuted as DT the Dutchman Frank de Boer.
Atlanta and Martinez will have revenge to reverse the bad image they left in the debut: on February 28, at home, they will play the second leg of the second round at the imposing Mercedes Benz Stadium.
