River Plate to win

The constant rotation of players can create imbalance and lack of clarity in both teams although the visitors have overcome different obstacles in the past. On the contrary, the home side tends to be inconsistent, winning difficult matches and losing the more accessible ones.

For these reasons, we favour a win for the visitors.

Under 2.5 Goals

As both teams will be resting some players, we believe that neither team will come out with the intensity they usually do. We think their main objective will be not to unprotect the defense.

So it would not be unusual to see a short score after the final whistle.


The home side has had a string of shots in recent games, however many of these have not been on target. That’s why they have failed to score in so many games.

River has defended well, so we don’t think they will allow Banfield to score.

Banfield vs River plate Preview: El Millonario expects to be the leader


After a good start to the Copa Sudamericana, where they managed to beat Santos from Brazil at home, a good future was expected for El Taladro. They also managed to beat Patronato in the previous round of the local league.

The success came to an end after losing the match against La Calera drom Chile, which if they had won would have placed them as group leaders. Now it is time to turn the page and face a powerful River Plate.

River coach Marcelo Gallardo prepares his team for their upcoming visit to Florencio Sola. The month of April is a month with a lot of games and forces to rotate the starting players.

That is why El Muñeco has tested some players during the training sessions, looking for a good performance despite the changes.
