River Plate to Win

With four points from the first three games, River Plate is tied with Corinthians in second place of their group of the Copa Sudamericana. So, the home team has a good chance to get to the next stage, but they need to beat Sport Huancayo once again to make that happen. The first match between the two teams ended 2-1 for River Plate and it is one of the three losses for Sport Huancayo, who will likely end their Copa Sudamericana season in the group stages. All of this leads to our prediction – River Plate to win the game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The first match between these two teams has already gone over 2.5 total goals, so there’s no reason why we can’t see the same thing in the rematch. After all, five of the six matches that these teams have played in the competition have gone over 2.5 total goals and that’s more than enough to make us believe that this game also has the potential to go over.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Since the first game between River Plate and Sport Huancayo ended 2-1, we can see both teams scoring once again in this game. River Plate has played one game in the Copa Sudamericana in which both teams have scored, while Sporting Huancayo has done the same in two of their three games in this competition. That being said, only one of their six games in the Paraguayan league has ended with both teams scoring, but we still like this bet.

River Plate vs Sport Huancayo preview: The match between two teams in poor form

The home team now only has theoretical chances of getting a spot in the Europa League, while Real Madrid is still chasing their city rivals in the race for the title. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams:

River Plate

The team from Asuncion is having a very poor season in the Paraguayan league since they are at the very bottom of the table after 15 games with only eight points and one win in that span. Things are a little bit better in the Copa Libertadores since the team is sharing the second place with Corinthians in the group with four points but if their form from the domestic league is any kind of an indicator, they will struggle to keep up and progress to the next phase.

Sport Huancayo

The Peruvian team has started the domestic league in solid form since they’ve won and drawn three games each to take the fifth spot in the standings. However, they were much less successful in the Copa Sudamericana so far since they’ve failed to collect a single point from the first three games in Group E. So, they’ll soon be out of the competition officially, unless we see a miracle in the remaining three games.
