River Plate Prediction

River Plate are currently situated in a mid-table position in the Argentinian Superliga and they signed off in December with a disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to Defensa y Justicia, so they’ll no doubt be keen to get off to a winning start at their Estadio Monumental Antonio Vespucio Liberti on Wednesday night.

Prior to the defeat last time out, River plate had put together a solid and encouraging five-match unbeaten run of results on home turf which included wins against San Martin San Juan, Aldosivi and Gimnasia La Plata as well as draws with Belgrano and Argentinos Juniors.

Indeed, River Plate have made home turf their fortress as they’ve lost just once in their last 13 matches, with an early season home record of 3-2-1 8/3 that also includes 3 clean sheets from their 6 home matches to date.

Forwards Borre and Scocco (2 goals apiece) look the most likely for the hosts.


Key-Facts – River Plate v Union Santa Fe

  • River Plate have lost just once in their last 13 home matches
  • River Plate have kept 3 clean sheets from their 6 home games this season
  • Union Santa Fe have lost 4 of their last 5 matches in the Superliga


Union Santa Fe Prediction

Union Santa Fe sit just one league position below River Plate but are level on points with their hosts although they come into this clash having endured a very barren spell in the Argentinian Superliga which has seen the visitors’ form slump in dramatic fashion.

Union Santa Fe have lost four of their last five matches overall in the Argentinian top flight with defeats to Godoy Cruz, Velez Sarsfield, San Martin San Juan and Banfield with just one point to show from a possible 15 on offer thanks to a 2-2 draw at home with bottom club Patronato.

The visitors’ away record reads an indifferent looking 2-2-2 6/4 as they’ve posted mixed results on the road so far this season which includes wins at Rosario Central and Argentinos Juniors but also losses at Racing Club and San Martin San Juan.

The visitors have won just 2 of their last 9 on their travels.

Betting Tips Verdict

River Plate look in good shape at home while Union Santa Fe have posted indifferent results away from home.
