Liverpool to Win

Both teams have started the new season in Uruguayan Apertura well – Liverpool with seven points, River Plate with eight. So, this should be a very close matchup and it’s tough to decide who has the advantage.

That being said, our prediction is for Liverpool to win. That’s mostly because they are hosting this game, but also because they beat River Plate in three of their last four h2h duels.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The last four head-to-head meetings between Liverpool and River Plate ended with three or more goals, so we expect the same thing to happen in their next duel.

That being said, Liverpool averaged just 1.80 goals per game so far in the league, while River Plate averaged 2.40 goals per game in the Uruguayan Apertura this season.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in the last four head-to-head duels between Liverpool and River Plate, so we can see that happening again on Wednesday.

Furthermore, both teams scored in four of the first five matches played by River Plate in Uruguayan Apertura so far, although we did not see both teams score in any of Liverpool games in the league this season.

River Plate vs Liverpool preview: An exciting first leg ahead


Similarly to their opponent in the Copa Sudamericana qualifiers, Liverpool started the new season in Uruguayan Apertura with seven points from the first five games of the new season. That’s a solid result so far for Liverpool and they will hope to build on it in the first leg of Copa Sudamericana qualifiers.

River Plate

The team from Montevideo enters the first leg against Liverpool with a lot of confidence in the outcome of this matchup. After all, River Plate is currently fifth in the standings of Apertura with eight points from five matches and that means that they are in good form, but Liverpool will host the first leg after all.
