River Plate to Win

The reigning champions of Argentina will start the new season in Copa de Liga Profesional against Union, a solid team that managed to secure a spot in Copa Sudamericana with their play last season.

So, Union Santa Fe is far from an easy opponent, but River Plate is the champion and the better team on paper. They also beat Union in three of their last five h2h games.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The last three head-to-head duels between Union and River Plate have gone over 2.5 total goals, so we can expect to see the same in their next meetings.

Furthermore, Union averaged 2.00 and 2.56 goals per game last season in Copa de Liga Profesional and Liga Profesional, while River Plate averaged 2.77 and 2.88 goals per game in the same competitions.

River Plate Over 1.5 Total Goals

Since we expect River Plate to win this game and we expect to see three or more goals, another bet that is interesting to us is betting on River Plate to score two or more goals.

After all, River Plate scored two or more goals in three of the last four meetings between Union and them. Also, River Plate averaged more than two scored goals per game in Copa de Liga Profesional and Liga Profesional combined.

Union vs River Plate preview: Can Union surprise the champions?

Union

The team from Santa Fe finished last season’s Copa de Liga Profesional at sixth place in the standings, just one point behind the team in the fourth spot that led to the playoffs. Meanwhile, Union finished Liga Profesional in the 12th place in the standings. Those results were enough to put Union in the 11th spot in the aggregate standings and secure them a place in Copa Sudamericana.

River Plate

After years of failing to win the title in Liga Profesional, River Plate finally lifted the trophy last season. The reigning champions first had a tough time in Copa de Liga Profesional where they finished third in and were eliminated by their fierce rivals Boca Juniors from the playoffs. But all that didn’t matter in the end after River Plate won their 36th title.
