Corinthians and River Plate to Draw

Although it is clear that River Plate is not on the same level as Corinthians, which is why the home team is favoured by the bookies despite already being eliminated, we feel that the lack of motive for Corinthians could lead to a surprising result in this game. We expect to see an exciting game in which River Plate will go for the win, but the lack of quality could prove tough to overcome. So, our prediction for this match is a draw, just like in the first duel between these two teams.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Although the first meeting between Corinthians and River Plate ended in a scoreless draw, we expect to see something different in this match. It’s the last round and River Plate does have a theoretical chance of topping the group with a win, so we expect them to go guns blazing from the start, which could open more space for Corinthians on counter-attacks. Furthermore, Corinthians has gone over 2.5 total goals in three of their five Copa Sudamericana matches, while the same is true for four of five River Plate games in the competition.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

We have already explained why we expect to see plenty of goals in this game, so our next prediction follows the same path of thinking and logic, which is for both teams to score in this game. Three of the five River Plate games in this competition have ended with both teams scoring, but we haven’t seen both teams score in any of the Corinthians matches in the Copa Sudamericana. So, we think it’s time we do.

Corinthians vs River Plate preview: Can River Plate get an important win?

While the home team is definitely out of contention for the next stage in the Copa Sudamericana, River Plate is hoping for things to go their way in the last round. With that in mind, let’s check both teams out in more detail.

Corinthians

It’s been a disappointing showing for Corinthians in the Copa Sudamericana. The Brazilian team wasn’t bad since they’ve gotten two wins, a draw and two losses in the previous five games, but they have nevertheless been eliminated even before the last round has arrived. The team will have to move on from this disappointment quickly however since the Brazilian Serie A is due to start over the weekend.

River Plate

The team from Asuncion is still clinging to hope of progression, but they need a few things to go their way to get to the next phase of the Copa Sudamericana. The first step is beating Corinthians in an away game and the second is for Penarol to lose to Sport Huancayo, a team that failed to get a single point in the group. All of this sounds nearly impossible, especially after you take into account the fact that River Plate is last in the Paraguayan league with just two wins in seventeen games.
