River Plate and Penarol to Draw

If Penarol was still unsure about progression, we would have suggested betting on the guests since the home team has been in poor form in the Paraguayan Apertura and they are in the last place in the standings at the moment. However, Penarol is already through to the next stage, so they only need a draw in this game to secure the top spot as well. With that in mind, our prediction is a draw.

River Plate and Penarol to Draw at Half Time

The majority of matches that end in a draw are also equal at half time. Since we expect this game to end in a draw, our prediction is also a draw at half time. In addition to this, River Plate has drawn at half time in two of their four Copa Sudamericana matches, so it could happen again in this one.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

While both teams have been playing high-scoring matches so far in the Copa Sudamericana, and their first duel has gone over 2.5 total goals, we believe that this game will be a bit different. The home team has to go into it carefully, while Penarol doesn’t have a reason to rush things. Basically, we are betting on under 2.5 total goals simply based on our hunch.

River Plate vs Penarol preview: Can River Plate get revenge against Penarol?

After a win in the first game between these teams, Penarol has already secured the next stage of the Copa Sudamericana, while River Plate has to fight for progression until the end. So, let’s check these teams out in more detail:

River Plate

The season in Paraguayan Apertura is coming to a close with only one round left to play and River Plate is likely to end at the very bottom of the standings. The team has only managed to win one of their sixteen games in this competition, which is certainly a disappointing result. However, things are going much better for them in the Copa Sudamericana since they’ve seven points after the first four games. This puts them in second place in the group, with a good chance of making it to the next phase.

Penarol

The new Apertura in Uruguay has begun over the weekend, although Penarol will play their first game the next weekend. In any case, the team that finished the previous edition of the Uruguayan league in third place in aggregate has also been playing great in the Copa Sudamericana. After four rounds in this competition, Penarol is on top of Group E with all four wins and they’ve already qualified for the next stage.
