River Plate are hoping to win again following the 2-4 Primera Division (Apertura) success over Cerro Largo.
Fixtures involving River Plate have often been exciting affairs recently with high scoring being the norm. Over their past six games, a total of 21 goals have flown in for both teams combined (at an average of 3.5 goals per game) with 11 of these belonging to La Dársena. We will just have to see whether or not that trend can be continued on into this next match.

Team News: River Plate
There’s just the lone fitness concern for the River Plate boss Jorge Fossati to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group of players. Facundo Vigo (Ruptured ligaments) misses out.
Team News: Progreso
Progreso has a number of players out of action. Alex Silva (Corona virus), Carlos Canobbio (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Javier Méndez (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not able to play.
In this match, Progreso are dangerous enough to score a goal against this River Plate outfit, although it might not quite be enough to prevent defeat.
We’re predicting a very close game with a 2-1 advantage for River Plate when the full-time whistle blows. It should be a decent one.
