River Plate Forward Matias Suarez Nutmegs Opponent With A Chest Control And It's Pure Filth
The 32-year-old former Anderlecht striker didn't get himself on the scoresheet in a dominant 3-0 win as goals from Rafael Borre, Gonzalo Montiel and Nicolas De La Cruz sealed all three points at the Estadio Antonio Vespucio Liberti.
But a moment of genius [or dumb luck] from the experienced Suarez made up for his disappointment in the goals department.
The Argentina international nutmegged Rosario defender Joaquín Laso after controlling the ball with his chest. Blimey.
As a result of the home side's 3-0 win, Marcelo Gallardo's River Plate are now fourth in the 13-team Group A standings with a win and a loss from their opening two matches.
Rosario Central sit in seventh place with one victory to their name.

Suarez, meanwhile, must have been delighted with his nutmeg exploits, but how does it compare to Raphinha's earlier this month?
If you didn't catch it, during Leeds' home clash against Crystal Palace, the Brazilian nutmegged Gary Cahill with an outrageous back-heel flick.
Raphinha well and truly lit up the first half and that piece of skill on the veteran defender summed up his performance.
Can we PLEASE talk about Raphinha's nutmeg over Gary Cahill last night?! :scream: pic.twitter.com/rrtADkrPDX- Soccer AM (@SoccerAM) February 9, 2021
