Argentinos Juniors vs River Plate preview: Which Argentine team will go through?

After failing to reach the knockout stages of Copa de la Liga Profesional, Argentinos Juniors had a long break for about a month, a bit longer compared to those clubs that did reach the knockout stage. The first-leg game of the Top 16 phase of Copa Libertadores against River Plate has been their first competitive match, but the team also played the first round of Primera Division over the weekend, in which they drew with Independiente. All in all, Argentinos Juniors have one win, two draws, and two losses in their last five matches in all competitions.

Unlike their upcoming opponents, River Plate made it to the knockout stage of the Argentine cup, but they've lost to Boca Juniors on penalties in quarter-finals. In any case, they've also been without competitive football for over a month, before playing in Copa Libertadores a week ago and before they've started the new season of the Argentinian league, Their first-round game in Primera Division was disappointing since they've lost to Colon Santa Fe at home.
