River Plate to Win

The mood at the Monumental would have been sour after River Plate’s ousting from the Copa de la Liga Profesional. Couple this with their inability to shove the challenge of Fluminense and the moods have heightened. Marcelo Gallardo would not be in any mood to let his players off the hook and they will be looking to make Junior FC pay. The elements will also favour the Argentines given the distances Junior will have to travel to participate in the fixture.

Total Goals Over 2.5

River Plate are the dominant outfit in this encounter and will be looking to impose their will on the game. They have been involved in 18 goals over their last five games, exhibiting a penchant for scoring goals and conceding them. With Junior involved in 12 goals over the same period, goals should be found aplenty as the two sides come together.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

The Millionaires defence has let them down in recent history and they will have another torrid night against Junior. The Sharks have scored seven goals in their last three outings, four of them in the Copa Libertadores engagements. With River Plate only managing a single clean sheet in their past five meetings, the Colombians will fancy their chances of testing their esteemed rivals.

River Plate vs Junior Fixture Preview

River Plate

Marcelo Gallardo will be looking to put the past seven days behind him. The Argentine side should have managed to claim the three points on offer against Fluminense but could only return to Buenos Aires with a draw. They followed it with a 1-2 defeat to San Lorenzo in the Copa de la Liga Profesional. River Plate’s defence has let them down in this period and Gallardo will be looking to plug their gaps. Meanwhile, young Federico Girotti will be tasked to continue his scoring spree and add to his four in five games.

Junior

Luis Amaranto Perea will be eagerly awaiting the resumption of continental responsibilities after overcoming the resistance of Santa Fe in the Colombian top-flight football. They followed their dull 1-1 draw with their compatriots with an impressive 3-1 win. Junior FC will be looking to go one better and try to claim the prized scalp of River Plate in the Copa Libertadores. Miguel Borja scored a brace against Santa Fe and will be shouldering the scoring burden against the Argentine giants.
