Buenos Aires, Argentina, Aug 17 : River Plate opened its new life in the second division of Argentine football with a 1-0 victory Tuesday against Chacarita Juniors before 40,000 at River's Monumental Stadium in Buenos Aires.


In June, River Plate was relegated to the second division for the first time in its history, a blow to a club that has won 33 titles in the top flight -- 10 more than anyone else.

Defender Juan Manuel Diaz scored the winning goal with a header, pleasing new coach Matias Almeyda. AP
