River Plate to Win

Both teams have started the season in Uruguayan Apertura well – Liverpool with seven, River Plate with eight points. So, this is a very close matchup and we already saw it in the first leg which was decided by one goal.

That one goal was scored by River Plate and now they have the advantage, in addition to hosting the second leg. With that in mind, we expect them to win this game as well.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

While we have seen just one goal in the first leg between River Plate and Liverpool, we saw three or more goals in the four h2h duels played between these two teams before the last one.

With that in mind, and taking into account the fact that the guests will have to be more offensive in this game since they have a deficit, our prediction is for the game to go over 2.5 total goals.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams scored in four of the previous five head-to-head duels between River Plate and Liverpool, the only exception being their last game and the first leg of the matchup.

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 second leg awaits us

River Plate

The team from Montevideo enters the second leg against Liverpool with a one-goal advantage after beating them 1-0 away from home, so it’s safe to say that they are in the driver’s seat in this matchup. Meanwhile, River Plate is currently fifth in the standings of Apertura with eight points from five matches.


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, but their loss in the first leg of the qualifiers against River Plate puts them in difficult position ahead of the rematch.
