River Plate to Win with Handicap (-1)

Even though four of the last five head-to-head matches between River Plate and Argentinos Juniors, we expect this game to be different. River Plate has been in much better form in the Argentine cup and since they are playing at home, our prediction is for them to beat Argentinos Juniors by at least two goals.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

All five previous h2h duels between these two teams have gone under 2.5 total goals, which is what we expect to happen in this game as well since it's clear that these two teams are used to playing low-scoring matches. In addition to this, Argentinos Juniors averaged 1.67 goals per game this season in Copa Libertadores, while River Plate averaged 2.33.

Correct Score 2-0

Since we expect River Plate to win on a handicap and we don't expect to see many goals, we figured that taking a punt at 2-0 correct score is not the worst idea in the world. The odds are, of course, very good and it does sound like a really logical result in this match to us, especially on a smaller wager.

River Plate vs Argentinos Juniors preview: The Argentine derby in Top 16

More than month has passed since River Plate has played the last competitive match since they've failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the Argentine cup. And the team only managed to win one game of their last five matches in all competitions, so they didn't go on their break in great form. However, the team did get to the Top 16 phase of Copa Libertadores, which is already a success for them, although they did have a bit of an easier group.

The reigning champions of Brazil are coming into the Top 16 stage after a tough-fought group. While they did finish on top of it, they've only done it with 12 points from three wins and three draws. In the meantime, Flamengo started the season in the Brazilian Serie A with five wins and four losses, but they've lost three of their last five games in the league. So, they will be looking at their upcoming Copa Libertadores duel for a bit of a confidence boost for the rest of the season.
