Team News: River Plate
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the River Plate manager Gustavo Díaz to contend with from of an almost fully healthy group. Roque Ramírez (Achilles tendon rupture) is sidelined.
Team News: Plaza Colonia
Owing to an otherwise available squad, there’s only the lone fitness issue for the Plaza Colonia boss Matías Rosa to be concerned with. Daniel Bahia (Knee Injury) won’t be playing here. Daniel Bahia cannot play in this game through suspension.
We feel that Plaza Colonia will need to push hard to hit the back of the net against this River Plate lineup who will likely score at least once to put them ahead.
We’re therefore expecting a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 win for River Plate when the referee blows for full-time.
It should be a good one.
