Our Right River Plate vs Platense Prediction and Picks
Halftime River Plate
El Calamar only took 33% of the points at home. El Millonario have taken 87% of their points from home games. The team coached by Martin Demichellis has almost double the amount of points that Martin Palermo’s team has. Our River Plate vs Platense prediction is that the tournament leader will return to winning ways, so El Millonario will win this game since 1st half.
River Plate to Score First in 1st Half
El Calamar had many defensive lapses throughout the championship, in fact in five of their last seven matchups they were the first to concede a goal. El Millonario has turned each of its lines into strengths that are very difficult to overcome. They have several top players in their back line, so River Plate will likely be the ones to open the scoring.
Goals in Both Halves
We expect to see goals from the first half until the final minutes of this promising match. Both River Plate vs Platense line ups have scored a good amount of goals in the last few rounds, so it would not be unusual to see goals during both halves of the best match in Argentina’s top flight.
The Right River Plate vs Platense Review
After 16 games, Martín Demichelis has shown that he came to the team with fresh ideas to renew the team, but at the same time emulate the glorious years that El Millonario had under their last coach. With 37 points, River Plate leads the table with two points ahead of second place and a game in hand.
The gap to their rivals was cut a little as the previous day River Plate lost away to Talleres de Cordoba. La T stayed behind the whole time, but made very effective counterattacks to take a 2-0 lead. El Millonario pulled one back but it was not enough.
Martín Palermo’s team put an end to a streak of five consecutive matches without a win. After scoring its fifth victory in the championship, El Calamar is in the sixteenth position with 20 points.
Platense had an impressive performance in its previous match against Racing Club. La Academia was surprised by the constant counterattacks of El Calamar, which despite having 37% of ball possession, they were the ones who shot most on target and scored a total of 3 goals, without conceding any.
