River Plate to Win

This is one of our favourite predictions for the entire round of the Uruguayan Apertura. The home team is on a tear with four wins in the last five matches, while Boston River is still without a win in the league after eight rounds have passed. Furthermore, River Plate has won the last two duels against Boston River, so we expect them to win this game without much trouble.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last five head-to-head matches between River Plate and Boston River have gone over 2.5 total goals, so we expect to see the similar thing in their next duel. Furthermore, River Plate averages 3.75 goals per game this season in Apertura, which is the second-best result in this area. Meanwhile, Boston River is not that behind with 2.88 goals per game, so this should be a high-scoring affair.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

As we explained already, these two teams tend to play high-scoring matches in which both teams score, which has happened in three of their previous five h2h duels. In addition to this, both teams have scored in 62% of River Plate games in Apertura, while the same is true for 75% of Boston River games in the league.

River Plate vs Boston River preview: Can the quests make a huge surprise?

The home team is the clear favourite in this game, but that doesn’t mean that their win is a foregone conclusion. With that in mind, let’s check the teams out in more detail now:

River Plate

With four wins in the last five games, it’s clear that River Plate is in great form at the moment. Overall, the team has five wins, one draw, and two losses in the first eight matches in Apertura, which is enough to put them in the fourth place in the standings. With one of the worst teams in the league coming to their feet, River Plate is certainly hoping to keep the run going.

Boston River

Only Villa Espanola is behind Boston River in the Apertura standings, and only by one goal since both teams have the same number of points. They are also the only two teams left without a win in the league. So, with Boston River having three draws and five losses at the moment, it’s clear that they need a win badly to improve their chances in the relegation battle.
