Former River Plate legend Ariel Ortega had already led Newell's Old Boys to the Apertura 2004 championship ending a dry spell lasting 13 years.
He had already scored a penalty against River Plate in the Clausura 2005. In the following season, Apertura 2005 he followed in his own free kick against River with this magnificent volley and as with his earlier penalty he refused to celebrate out of respect for the River Plate fans. This run of goals against his former club was ended when River decided to resign him in 2006.
