Our River Plate v Fénix tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below - plus the latest betting odds.
River Plate will play in this fixture following a 0-0 Primera Division tied result vs Danubio.
A recurring trait of more recent River Plate games is the number of nil scores.
Taking their previous six matches before this one, in as many as 5 of them a bet on both teams scoring would've been a loser. In any event, we’ll just have to find out if that trend might be replicated in this upcoming game or not.
Fénix come into this match following on from a 1-0 Primera Division win with the defeat of Deportivo Maldonado in their previous match.
For 5 of the previous 6 clashes involving Fénix, a comparatively low number of goals have been scored between them and their opposition. The overall average goals scored per game within that spell comes to just 2.17, with the average goals for Albivioletas equalling 0.67.
Head to head
A glance at their most recent head to head clashes stretching back to 17/01/2021 tells us that River Plate have won 3 of these games & Fénix 0, with the tally of drawn games standing at 3.

Team News: River Plate
The River Plate manager Gustavo Díaz has zero fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash owing to a fully injury-free group to pick from. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Joaquín Trasante and Ezequiel Busquets.
Team News: Fénix
From a largely full-strength group of players, there’s just a single fitness problem for the Fénix gaffer Leonel Rocco to be concerned about. Agustín Requena (Meniscus damage) won’t be in action.
We feel that Fénix will need to apply a lot of pressure to break down this River Plate team who we think will end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re going for a hard-fought 1-0 advantage for River Plate at the end of the 90.
It should be a good one.
