River Plate and Alianza Lima to Draw at Half Time

This match won’t mean anything to either team since River Plate is definitely first in the group, while Alianza Lima is last in the group. So, this will have a feeling of a friendly match for both teams.

With that in mind, we don’t see why the game can’t be tied at half time and with the odds on this market, we can’t resist the temptation to give it a try. After all, these two teams drew at half time in their first duel in the group earlier this season.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The first match between River Plate and Alianza Lima in Copa Libertadores this season ended with just one goal being scored, so we suggest betting on under 2.5 total goals in this game as well.

After all, River Plate has gone under 2.5 total goals in three of their five games in the group and the same is true for Alianza Lima as well, so under seems like a reasonable bet.

Correct Score: 2-0

So, River Plate is such a huge favourite to win the game that it doesn’t pay to bet on them to win in any capacity, except pehaps on a handicap with multiple goals. But we don’t see that happening in this game.

Instead, we can see River Plate treating this like any other friendly game and not playing hard to get the win at all. Of course, they are a much better team than Alianza and they are playing at home, so a 2-0 win for River Plate sounds like a plausible outcome.

River Plate vs Alianza Lima preview: Basically a friendly game

River Plate

The reigning champions of Argentina enter this game after already securing the top spot in the group, so this last round will serve as nothing more than a way to keep up their form going. Meanwhile, River Plate was eliminated by Tigre in the quarter-finals of Copa de la Liga Profesional, which was a pretty big disappointment for their fans.

Alianza Lima

With seven straight wins in their domestic championship, Alianza Lima climbed to the fourth place in the standings and they are now just five points behind the very top while also being behind one game compared to the other teams ahead of them. However, things have gone pretty badly for Alianza in Copa Libertadores since they only have one point from the first five rounds.
