Thursday’s Copa Libertadores schedule brings us São Paulo coming up against River Plate.

Our full set of predictions, statistics and match poll for São Paulo v River Plate can be seen below (inc. the best betting odds).

📊 Form Guide

São Paulo WWLWDD

São Paulo prepare for this match after a 2-2 Série A drawn match vs Santos.

In that game, São Paulo had 48% possession and 7 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. The only player to score for São Paulo was Gabriel Sara (8', 39'). For their opponents, Santos got 4 shots at goal with 2 on target. Madson (30') and Marinho (75') scored for Santos.

It has not been often in recent games that São Paulo haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Tricolor Paulista have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 8 goals on the way. That kind of trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, however.

River Plate WWDLDW

River Plate come into this game after a 8-0 Copa Libertadores win with the eclipse of Binacional in their previous match.

Marcelo Gallardo's River Plate have managed to stick the ball in the net 13 times throughout their previous 6 matches. The number of goals that have been scored against them during those same matches equals 5.

📋 Team News: São Paulo

Walce (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Joao Rojas (torn tendon), Luciano (Hamstring Injury) and Dani Alves (Forearm Fracture) won’t be available for São Paulo manager Fernando Diniz.

📰 Team News: River Plate

Due to a mostly available group, there is just the sole fitness problem for the River Plate manager Marcelo Gallardo to be concerned about. Benjamín Rollheiser (Ruptured cruciate ligament) won’t be in action.

💭 Prediction

Our assessment is that River Plate and São Paulo should both be able to score here although it’s hard to pick a clear winner.

We’ll see, but this looks like it could end up all-square. We’re therefore predicting a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 score at the end of this game.
