Our predictions, user poll and statistics for River Plate v Cerro Largo can be found here - plus the latest betting odds.
River Plate go into this game coming off the back of a 1-1 Primera Division drawn result versus Rentistas.
It has not been often in recent times that River Plate have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that La Dársena have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 10 goals along the way. Previous results aside, it remains to be seen if such a trend will be maintained in this match.
Previously, Cerro Largo drew 1-1 in the Primera Division match with Peñarol.
Cerro Largo have regularly broken through opposing defences in their most recent fixtures, scoring 7 goals in their last 6 matches. This doesn’t mask the fact that Cerro Largo can also improve defensively after being scored against in 6 of those same clashes.
Team News: River Plate
There is just the sole fitness concern for the River Plate boss Jorge Fossati to be concerned with due to a largely intact group. Facundo Vigo (Ruptured ligaments) misses out.
Team News: Cerro Largo
Owing to a fully injury-free squad to pick from, Cerro Largo manager Danielo Núñez has zero fitness concerns to report before this match.
Our assessment here is that Cerro Largo could find themselves up against it to score goals against this River Plate team who we think will likely get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
Our tip is therefore for a 1-0 win for River Plate when all is said and done.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
