Wanderers and River Plate to Draw

Since both teams are doing well in the league at the moment, we feel that a draw is the most reasonable result in this game, which is why that’s our prediction for the Wanderers vs River Plate duel. In addition to this, two of their last four head-to-head matches have ended in draws, so it’s not an unusual thing for these two teams to split points.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

This match will be a duel of two different philosophies – while the home team is playing cautious, defensive style, the guests are playing to score a goal more instead of to concede fewer goals. This is reflected in their average this season since Wanderers are averaging just 1.67 goals per game, which is the worst score in the league, while River Plate is averaging 3.56 goals per game, the second-best score in the league. So, we’ve decided to go with tradition and recent h2h history and suggest betting on under 2.5 total goals, which happened in three of the last five meetings between these teams.

Correct Score – 1-1

So, we expect this game to end in a draw and we expect to see fewer than three goals in the game. With that in mind, we feel that betting on correct score to be 1-1 is worth a try. The odds are certainly great and this was the score in two of the previous four duels between Wanderers and River Plate, which bodes well for our prediction.

Wanderers vs River Plate preview: Can Plaza Colonia keep the run going

With both teams doing well in the Uruguayan Apertura at the moment, this should be a very interesting match. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their game:

Wanderers

The Montevideo-based team has been doing according to their reputation in the league since they’ve got four wins, two draws, and three losses in the first nine games of the season. Meanwhile, they are without a loss in the last three games, although two of those matches have been draws. In any case, Wanderers have a chance to improve their standings if they can string a few good results in the next few rounds.

River Plate

The team that finished the last season in the eighth place in the aggregate table has been doing much better in this year’s Apertura. After the first nine rounds, River Plate has won five games, drawn twice and lost two times. This is enough for 17 points and the fourth place in the standings at the moment. Furthermore, River Plate is just three points behind the top two teams, so there’s a chance that they can be in the title race until the end of Apertura.
