River Plate to Win

Four of the last five head-to-head duels between River Plate and Boca Juniors have ended without a winner and we were tempted to suggest the same for this game.

However, River Plate is the reigning champion, the better team on paper, in better form, and they are hosting the game. So, we can see River Plate getting all three points from this match.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

While we’ve seen three or more goals in just two of the last five h2h meetings between River Plate and Boca Juniors, we expect this game to go over 2.5 total goals.

After all, River Plate averaged 2.83 goals per game in Copa de la Liga Profesional so far, while Boca Juniors averaged 2.33 goals per game in the league this season.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in four of the last five h2h meetings between River Plate and Boca Juniors and we can see that happening once again on Sunday.

Furthermore, both teams scored in 67% of all Boca Juniors matches in the league until now, although the same is true for just 33% of all River Plate games in Copa de la Liga Profesional this season.

River Plate vs Boca Juniors preview: The biggest derby in Argentina

River Plate

The defending champions of Argentina have started the new season well in Copa de la Liga Profesional with thirteen points from the first six games and they are on their way to making it to the playoffs of the competition. Of course, all of this doesn’t mean much when it comes to the next game against Boca Juniors since their matches are always unpredictable.

Boca Juniors

The team from Buenos Aires has eleven points from the first six rounds of Copa de la Liga Profesional, which is a solid number of points that keeps them in hunt for a playoff spot. Boca Juniors didn’t have the best of season last year, but if they can keep up and reach the playoffs in this competition it will be a good start of the new one.
