River Plate to win

Both teams are close rivals and they want to climb the standings at this stage. With 14 points, El Halcón is in second place in the group and El Millonario is in fourth place with 13 points. However, the favourite to achieve the victory next Sunday is River Plate. 

Under 2.5 Goals

A rude defense line will be the key in this matchup, both teams will try to have a clean sheet and be the opener in the game. We think the offensive players will be limited and they will not have many goals opportunities.


River Plate has one of the best defensive lines, they have conceded only five goals in seven games. On the contrary, the hosts have a mediocre defense that contrasts with their great offensive. So, we expect River to be the only one to score next match.
