These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing. We recommend checking with the bookmaker before placing the bet.

River Plate to Win

Despite their position, Platense has managed to get two draws against teams in the top half of the table. In their last two matches, they have had less than 40% possession of the ball, unlike River Plate who have always kept control of the ball.

We deduce that from long ball possession, the Millonario will have many chances to score and crush their opponents.

Over 2.5 Goals

The visitors are one of the lowest-scoring teams in the Argentine championship their goals per game average is just 0.85. On matchday 13, River Plate destroyed Sarmiento with an astonishing 7-0 win.

So, we reckon El Millonario will have a comfortable win, scoring more than 2 goals.

BTTS – No

Platense has had just 10 shots on goal in their last three meetings, and in one of those three matches, they have failed to put the ball in the net. On the other hand, the hosts have scored in each of their last 4 matchups.

Therefore, we think only the home team will open the scoring.

River Plate vs Platense Preview: Last try to be the leader

River Plate

The home side trashed Sarmiento 7-0 in a wonderful football exhibition in Junín. Marcelo Gallardo’s side played their best game of the tournament and got players like Julian Alvarez back on track, by the way, he scored a hat trick.

With this victory, River Plate secured their place in the Final Phase, although their position in the group is not yet fixed. Now, they are second, but they could finish first or third in the group, depending on the result against Platense at the Monumental in the last matchday.

Platense

At the end of the group stage, Platense had been left with no chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals on previous dates. Even so, they have complicated their last opponents, who are still fighting for qualification, withdraws that didn’t do them much good.

The previous matchday they drew 1-1 with Argentinos Junior, in a game that lacked shots on goal, with many attempts but far from the target. Now, Platense’s only goal will be not to finish last in group A.
