River Plate to Win

The home team is in great form and they are currently only three points behind Plaza Colonia in the race for the top spot in the Uruguayan Apertura. However, Rentistas is also doing well at the moment, with three wins and a draw in their last four matches. Still, River Plate is the better team and they have the home-court advantage, so our prediction is for River Plate to win this game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last five head-to-head duels between River Plate and Rentistas have gone over 2.5 total goals, which is what we expect to happen in their next match as well. Furthermore, River Plate averaged 3.5 goals per game in the league so far, which is the second-most in Apertura. Rentistas, on the other hand, only averaged 2.00 goals per game so far, but these two teams should be able to combine for at least three goals.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

We expect to see at least three goals in this game, so we also expect to see both teams scoring in the game. After all, both teams have scored in four of the last five h2h meetings between these two teams. In addition to this, both teams have scored in 70% of all River Plate games in Apertura, while the same is true for 40% of all Rentistas matches in the league.

River Plate vs Rentistas preview: Can River Plate get to the very top?

With both teams in good form at the moment, the River Plate vs Rentistas duel should be very interesting. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the teams:

River Plate

The team that finished the last season in the eight place in the aggregate standings is doing much better in the Uruguayan Apertura this season. At the moment, River Plate is second in the league with 20 points after the first 10 rounds, only three points behind the top team in the standings. Also, River Plate is on a great run, with five wins, two draws, and just one loss in the last eight games they played.


After they ended the last season just two points behind their upcoming opponent, Rentistas probably hoped for a better start in Apertura this season. However, they started the season with three losses in the first four matches and they are now sitting in the eight place in the standings. That being said, Rentistas is in a very good form at the moment, with three wins and a draw in their last four matches.
