Half time/Full time – River Plate/River Plate

El Millonario has been one of the most consistent teams in Argentinean football, one of the few teams to secure qualification to the quarter-finals a couple of matchdays in advance. In their last home meetings, they have won 3 times and drawn 1. They have opened the scoring in the first half in 4 of their last 5 matches. That’s why we think the home side will take advantage in the first half and get the win at the final whistle.

Under 2.5 Goals

Only in 1 of the last 6 h2h, the final score has been more than a couple of goals. The results have always been even, with 2 0-0 draws. We think that this time there will also be a final score of fewer than 3 goals.


El Millonario has scored in each of their last 5 matches, scoring a total of 13 goals. They are also one of the teams with the fewest goals conceded with an average of less than 1 per game. In 4 of the previous 6 h2h matches, Tigre failed to score, which is why we assume they won’t do so on this occasion either.

River Plate vs Tigre Preview: Will the current Champion advance?

River Plate

The reigning champions of the Argentine tournament had an excellent group stage, finishing second in the group, just one point behind leaders Racing. With 31 goals in 14 games, it is the second team with the most goals, and it is also in the top 5 of the teams that conceded the fewest goals in this group stage.

The club coached by Marcelo Gallardo has maintained the high level shown in recent years. For this reason, they are favourites to advance to the semi-finals.


In the first 10 matchdays, Tigre had proved to be one of the most balanced teams in the tournament, it looked like they would be one of the first teams to secure their place in the quarter-final round. However, in the last four rounds, they could only manage one point after one draw and three defeats.

This negative streak put them at risk of reaching the next round, but they had a bit of luck and their direct rivals could not get three points in the last matchday. Among the eight qualified teams, the team with the fewest goals scored and the third lowest number of goals scored.
