Team News: Deportivo Maldonado
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the sole fitness concern for the Deportivo Maldonado boss to be concerned with from a near full-strength squad. Diego Casas (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t play.
Team News: River Plate
River Plate boss Jorge Fossati has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Facundo Boné (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Matías Arezo (Muscle Injury) and Maximiliano Calzada (Muscle Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
In our view, Deportivo Maldonado will need to apply a lot of pressure to score goals against this River Plate outfit who we think will end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a 0-1 win for River Plate when all is said and done.
It should be a good one.
