River Plate to Win

The Millionaires have been one of the most successful sides in the Copa Libertadores in recent history. Had Palmeiras not jolted their aspirations, they would have claimed back-t0-back continental titles. In their opening group stage fixture, they have the relatively easy task of managing Fluminense. Despite being on the road, River Plate are favourites and with good reason.

Total Goals Over 2.5

The last three competitive fixtures involving River Plate saw three or more goals. Central Cordoba bore the brunt of River’s attack in a 0-5 demolishing at home. Similar results have been witnessed in Fluminense’s three recent outings, with two of them having three goals or more. With both sides preferring attack over the defence and leaving little to wonder about, expect plenty of fireworks on both ends.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

The hosts have scored in their last eight competitive matches, hitting the back of the net 15 times in the process. They will face Marcelo Gallardo’s men, who have nine to their names in their last three games alone. With both sides calling on attacking talents like Fred and Rafael Borre, the match has all the ingredients for action on either side of the pitch.

Fluminense vs River Plate Fixture Preview

Fluminense

Despite the odds, Roger Machado will fancy his side’s chances against River Plate. In the build to this game, they have managed to overcome the challenge of domestic threats, securing three wins in the process. Fred may be past his prime but Machado is getting the most out of his experienced campaigner. Moreover, his presence is rubbing on young forward Kayky. The seventeen-year-old has scored two goals in his last three outings, impressing all and sundry in the process.

River Plate

After losing out to crosstown rivals Boca Juniors by a single point in the Argentine Primera DivisiĆ³n, the Millionaires are back with a vengeance. Marcello Gallardo has forged his side in his image and his side exhibit it with ease in cup competitions. Central Cordoba and Godoy Cruz will attest to their attacking prowess after being taken to the cleaners in 0-5 and 1-6 defeats. Rafael Borre remains their chief attacking outlet with seven goals to his name. Borre is in good company with Julian Alvarez, the ever-ready young Argentine who is always looking to unlock defences.
