All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for River Plate v Rentistas are shown below - as well as the best betting odds.
River Plate will be looking for a repeat result of a 1-2 Primera Division (Apertura) triumph over Montevideo Wanderers.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent times that River Plate have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, La Dársena have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 7 goals in the process. We will see if that trend can be sustained into this next match.
Rentistas come into this match after a 2-1 Primera Division (Apertura) win to beat Liverpool FC in their most recent match.
For 5 of the prior 6 games involving Rentistas, a notably low volume of goals have been struck between them and opposing teams. The overall average number of goals per game in that spell comes to a paltry 1.83, with the average goals for Bichos Colorados being 1.
Head to head
Inspecting their prior head to head clashes stretching back to 13/09/2014 shows us that River Plate have won 1 of these games & Rentistas 4, with the number of drawn results being 1.
A sum of 16 goals were yielded between them in this period, with 6 from La Dársena and 10 netted by Bichos Colorados. That is an average goals per game value of 2.67.
Team News: River Plate
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the sole fitness concern for the River Plate manager Jorge Fossati to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength set of players. Facundo Vigo (Ruptured ligaments) won’t play.
Team News: Rentistas
Thanks to a fully healthy squad available for selection, Rentistas manager Martín Varini does not have any fitness concerns to report ahead of this game.
We’re of the opinion that Rentistas have the capability to find the back of the net against this River Plate outfit, but it is unlikely to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We reckon that it will be a close game with a 2-1 winning score for River Plate after the 90. It should be a decent one.
