River Plate to edge a victory

Before we even reached our first prediction we’ve touched on how little separates the two sides but we’re tipping River Plate to come out on top when they meet. The overall form picture might be the same but a focus on more recent matches puts River Plate as the form side; they’ve won four of their last five including having three wins on the spin whilst Plaza Colonia have suffered a defeat a few games back against Nacional. The other thing that swings our hunch towards River Plate is the head to head history; you have to go back to 2016 for the last time Plaza Colonia beat River Plate on their own ground.

Several goals to go flying in

It might be early days in the season but the goals have already started flying in for both teams. River Plate’s matches have averaged a rather staggering 3.7 goals so far with Plaza Colonia coming in at a much more modest 2.3. What is more important than the average per game though is how many of their matches are ending with at least three goals in. For Plaza Colonia, the answer to that question is four from six. River Plate go one better than that with just one of their opening fixtures falling under the 2.5 cut off.

Both teams to find the net

The final prediction we’re going to make is that both River Plate and Plaza Colonia will score in the match. We’re currently six matches into the season with both sides only firing blanks in one game; strangely, both matches ended 0-0. On top of scoring in five of the six matches they’ve played, there have been very few clean sheets for the two teams. Both teams have recorded two.

River Plate vs Plaza Colonia Preview: River Plate to edge the match

River Plate

River Plate have started their campaign in very good form and, as we’ve touched on already, their games have largely served up plenty of entertainment where the goal scoring is concerned. 18-year-old Matias Arezo is the man to watch for the hosts. He’s bagged five goals this season with all of them coming in the last three matches; he scored two last time out and bagged a hat-trick against Cerro Largo on June 6.

Plaza Colonia

Plaza Colonia’s form has been very similar to that of River Plate; the team are sitting high in the league standings whilst, once again, serving up football that has been an enjoyable watch for neutral fans. Their leading scorer is centre forward Diogo, who has three goals to his name, and they’ll be hoping he can score the goals whilst young keeper Santiago Mele can keep River Plate out.
