River Plate to Win with Handicap (-1)
While River Plate started the new season in Copa de la Liga Profesional with six points from the first three games, Racing Club has collected five points. So, the two teams are in pretty similar forms.
However, River Plate is the better team of the two and they will play at home, so we expect them to get the win here. And since River Plate beat Racing in four of their last five duels by two or more goals, we expect the same to happen here.
River Plate to Win at Half Time and Full Time
Since we expect River Plate to win this game by two goals or more, we also expect them to lead at half time before claiming the win at the end of the game.
As we already mentioned, River Plate beat Racing Club in four of their last five h2h meetings and all four wins have come after River Plate was leading at half time.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Three of the previous five head-to-head duels between River Plate and Racing Club have gone over 2.5 total goals, so we expect that to be the case in their next match as well.
In addition to this, River Plate averaged 2.67 goals per game so far in the league, while Racing Club averaged 2.33 goals per game in Copa de la Liga Profesional this season.
River Plate vs Racing Club preview: The derby of the round?
The defending champions of Argentina have started the new season in Copa de la Liga Profesional with a couple of wins and one loss, which is not that bad and certainly puts them in good position ahead and we certainly have no doubt that they will make the playoffs. The team will be without Pena Biafore and Suarez in this game due to injuries.
Reaching the finals of Copa de la Liga Profesional last season was a great success for Racing Club and they have to be taken seriously as one of the favourites in this season too. The team started the new season with a couple of draws and a win, which puts them just one point behind their upcoming opponent. Arias, Mena, and Prado will miss this game through injuries.
