These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

River Plate to Win

The reigning champions of Argentina have started the new season in Copa de la Liga Profesional with one win and one loss, just like their upcoming opponent. So, both teams are in the same spot ahead of this game.

Still, River Plate is the favourite for a reason since they are the better team and we expect them to prove it in this game. After all, River Plate beat Newell’s Old Boys in their last three h2h duels.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The last four h2h meetings between River Plate and Newell’s Old Boys have gone over 2.5 total goals, so we wouldn’t be surprised if that happened again on Monday.

Furthermore, River Plate averaged 3.00 goals per game in the first two rounds of the new Copa de la Liga Profesional season, while Newell’s averaged 2.00 goals per game in their first two games.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in the last four head-to-head duels between Newell’s Old Boys and River Plate, so we expect the same to happen in their upcoming game.

That being said, both teams have scored in one of the first two games played by River Plate so far, while we did not see both teams score in any of the Newell’s Old Boys matches in the new season.

Newell’s Old Boys vs River Plate preview: Can Newell’s put up a fight?

Newell’s Old Boys

With one win and one loss in the first two rounds of Copa de la Liga Profesional, Newell’s had an average start of the new season. However, since Newell’s Old Boys were last in their group in this competition last season, their fans are probably happy with three points from the first two games. In addition to this, Newell’s Old Boys have no injuries at the moment.

River Plate

The reigning champions of Argentina have also started the new season with one win and one loss, just like their upcoming rival. That might not be the perfect way to get the competition going, but there’s no doubt that River Plate will be in the playoffs at the end of regular season in Copa de la Liga Profesional. Pena Biafore and Suarez will miss the next game through injuries.
