Team News: River Plate
Juan Fernando Quintero (Torn muscle bundle), Robert Rojas (Tibia and Fibula Fracture) and Rodrigo Aliendro (Facial Fracture) aren’t available for River Plate gaffer Marcelo Gallardo.
It seems likely that Los Millonarios will probably use the 4-1-3-2 formation for the game with Ezequiel Centurión, Milton Casco, Emanuel Mammana, Javier Pinola, Elias Gomez, Bruno Zuculini, Santiago Simón, Esequiel Barco, Agustín Palavecino, Pablo Solari and Lucas Beltrán.
Team News: Talleres
Due to a fully healthy group available for selection, the Talleres boss Pedro Caixinha has no fitness worries to report coming into this clash.
It’s our belief that La T will likely play in a 4-2-3-1 formation with a starting lineup of Alan Aguerre, Julio Buffarini, Matias Catalan, Rafael Pérez, Angelo Martino, Christian Oliva, Alan Franco, Francisco Pizzini, Matías Godoy, Juan Giacone and Rodrigo Garro.
We envisage that River Plate will, in all likelihood, stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
However, Talleres may well struggle to get a goal of their own but we can see them scoring as well.
We’re tipping a comfortable 3-1 margin for River Plate come full-time.
