Team News: Montevideo Wanderers
The Montevideo Wanderers manager Daniel Carreño doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this clash with a completely injury-free group available to select from.
Team News: River Plate
Thanks to a largely available group of players, there is just the one fitness issue for the River Plate boss Gustavo Díaz to be concerned about. Roque Ramírez (Achilles tendon rupture) won’t be playing here.
In our view, River Plate could well find it tough to breach the defence of this Montevideo Wanderers side who should get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore anticipating a narrow 1-0 winning margin for Montevideo Wanderers at the end of the 90.
