If you can’t seem to decide what is the best bet for Fortaleza vs River Plate, check our top betting predictions for this duel:

River Plate to Win

The defending champions of Argentina had a perfect start to the new Copa Libertadores season and they have basically already secured a spot in the next stage of the competition.

However, with a win over Fortaleza in the next round, River Plate could secure the top spot in the group, which is exactly what we expect to happen, especially since Fortaleza is in poor form with five losses in six games in all competitions.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The first duel between Fortaleza and River Plate this season in Copa Libertadores ended in a 2-0 win for River Plate, so the game clearly went under 2.5 total goals.

We can see that being the case in the rematch as well since River Plate rarely goes over in their matches. After all, two of their three games so far in Copa Libertadores have gone under, although two of the three Fortaleza games have gone over 2.5 total goals.

Both Teams to Score – No

The first game in the group between Fortaleza and River Plate ended with Fortaleza failing to score and we don’t see both teams scoring in this match either.

Of course, the more likely team to fail to score is Fortaleza, so you can also try River Plate to keep a clean sheet or River Plate to win to nil, but we decided to suggest the safest bet here.

Fortaleza vs River Plate preview: Can Fortaleza surprise us all?

Fortaleza

The surprising addition to Copa Libertadores this season is not having the best of starts in any competition. In fact, Fortaleza lost all three of their matches in Serie A and they have one win in three games in Copa Libertadores, which is not that bad since it still puts them in race for the second place in the group.

River Plate

The champions of Argentina have done very well so far in the season, with three wins in the first three games of the group stages. So, if they win their next game, they will secure the top spot for the next stage. Meanwhile, River Plate is second in their Copa de la Liga Profesional group and they certainly secured a spot in the playoffs in that competition.
