River Plate to Win

While Velez failed to get into the playoffs of Copa de la Liga Professional, River Plate did a bit better by getting in, but they were eliminated in the first round. Still, River Plate is the defending champion of Liga Professional and they have started this competition well, better than Velez.

With that in mind, and taking into account the simple fact River Plate is the better team on paper, we can see them winning this game and getting an advantage ahead of the second leg.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Even though we’ve seen three or more goals in just two of the last five head-to-head duels between Velez and River Plate, we can see this game going over 2.50 total goals.

After all, Velez averaged 3.83 goals per game in Copa Libertadores group stages, while River Plate averaged 3.50 goals per game in the competition so far.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in two of the last five head-to-head duels between Velez and River Plate, which isn’t that great, but we can see it happening in this game.

The reason is simple – both teams have scored in 83% of all Velez matches in the group stages of Copa Libertadores, while the same thing happened in 50% of all River Plate games in the competition.

Velez vs River Plate preview: Which Argentinian team will go to the quarter-finals?

Velez

After missing the playoffs in Copa de la Liga Professional after finishing sixth in their group, Velez fans will likely hope for a better showing in Liga Professional. However, Velez started this competition with just five points from the first five matches, so they aren’t in great form at the start of this competition either. On the bright side, Velez has a chance to fight for a spot in Copa Libertadores quarter-finals.

River Plate

The reigning champions of Argentine, i.e. winners of Liga Professional, didn’t do as well in Copa de la Liga Professional this season. The team did reach the playoffs, but they were eliminated right away, in quarter-finals. Meanwhile, the new season of Liga Professional is already on the way and River Plate collected eight points from the first five games.
