These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing. Check your betslip before confirming.

River Plate to inflict another defeat on Fenix

River Plate travel to Fenix after suffering their second defeat of the season last time out but it’s still the visitors that we are tipping to win. The two sides have mirror image with River Plate sitting on four wins, one draw and two defeats compared to the two wins and four defeats that Fenix have recorded. What’s perhaps more relevant though is the fact that Fenix have lost their last three and have only beaten River Plate twice in the last 10 meetings.

Expect the goals to flow

Forget our prediction that River Plate will win this game and focus on how many goals we might see for a minute; we’re predicting that there will be at least three. The reason for that can be found in both the head to head record and the more recent general form. From their seven games this season, River Plate average 3.3 goals per match with Fenix just a tad lower a 3.0 per game. On top of that both sides have seen three of their last five matches end north of 2.5 and the h2h record over the past five matches has seen 16 goal; that’s 3.2 per match.

A narrow but deserved River Plate win?

It’s never easy to predict a correct score but we’re going for it anyway. The result in question? 2-1 River Plate. So, what makes us plump for a 2-1 away win. Firstly, Fenix have been in good goal scoring form of late with the fact they’ve netted in their last four so we don’t expect them to blank. The reason we’ve gone with the solitary strike on their part is because they’ve averaged one goal per game across their last five home matches whilst the last three times they’ve hosted River Plate they have also scored one goal. As for the River Plate contribution of two goals that is driven by the fact that only two of the last 15 meetings between these two have ended with more than a one goal differential. During that 15 game spell, 2-1 is the most common score line as well.

Fenix vs River Plate: River Plate to get back on track

Fenix

Fenix haven’t made a cracking start to the season by any stretch of the imagination but at least they can see where they’re going wrong. Hitting the back of the net hasn’t been a problem with goals coming from several different sources; Luciano Nequecaur leads their scoring charts with just two goals meaning a further six players have chipped in. At the back, however. they have looked rather leaky shipping the second most goals in the league. Luis Mejia will be hoping for an easier day between the posts than against Liverpool but his back five will need to up their game.

River Plate

Unlike Fenix, River Plate have made a decent start to their campaign albeit their 1-0 defeat to Plaza Colonia last time out would have hurt. They’ll be confident of winning this match though. We’ve already touched on a far from watertight defence and River Plate have the second best attack in the league with Matias Arezo having five goals to his name already this season. He’ll be the main danger man.
