Superclásico match preview

Unfortunately for all football fans, one of the world's biggest rivalries will not occur during the year 2020. However, the match-up will act as a nice way for both teams and supporters to get into 2021 football as the next meeting between the two being scheduled on 03.01.2021. However, this will not be your regular league or Copa Libertadores match between the two. Due to the wide-spread pandemic's bizarre circumstances, the Argentine Football Association introduced a whole new tournament format – the Copa de la Liga Profesional. The structure of this competition is as follows:

Twenty-four teams were first split into six groups, with the winners and runner-ups in these groups continuing to the Fase Campeón, while the 3rd and 4th spot finishers will play in the Fase Complementación, essentially serving as a losers-bracket.

Both River Plate and Boca Juniors managed to triumph in their groups and will finally face each other in their Fase Campeón group, which also consists of Independiente, Arsenal, Huracán, and Argentinos Juniors. The bad news is that only a single one of these six teams will have the opportunity to play in the Fase’s finals, which means that one of the two Superclásico sides, if not both, may end-up without a silverware.

However, River Plate might still get their hands on a trophy. Their Copa Libertadores hopes are set high, and they've been performing rather impressive, most recently recording a 6-2 win over Uruguay's Nacional. Now The Millionaires will have to tackle one of the favorites in the semi-finals – the Brazillian side Palmeiras. On the other hand, Boca Juniors' Copa Libertadores still hasn't come to an end but is hanging on the ropes. Boca lost its first quarterfinal game against Racing 1-0 and now has to make up for this loss and has to worry about the aggregate score, something which will be problematic as the Argentine side has struggled to score a lot of goals as of lately.

Of the two, River Plate stands out with the better recent form, despite there not being many recent games to judge from. Football in Argentine was just recently restarted, and from what we've seen, it seems that River Plate will have the upper-hand in the upcoming fixture.

This is quite a tricky match-up, and given the fact that there are very few to take of the clubs' latest games, we are confident in our predictions.

  • Bet one: River Plate to win
  • Bet two: Both teams to score – No
  • Bet three: Total Cards over 3.5

River Plate to win

Undoubtedly, River Plate is the favorite coming in this match. They've knocked out Boca Juniors from the Copa Libertadores the last time they met, and we believe that they will be able to win once again. Boca's most significant advantage – the home ground advantage will not come into play, as the stadium will remain empty of fans. In a fierce rivalry like this one, the home team can often have the edge from the support of its fans.

Both teams to score – No

Boca has been in a slum lately, which prevents them from scoring a decent number of goals. The majority of their games have concluded with a single or no goals at all for the Blue and Gold. We believe that up against a strong opponent and also rival River Plate, Boca will struggle to find the net.

Total Cards Over 3.5

Argentinian football is quite physical, and players can often be seen getting booked left and right. When it comes to one of the world's greatest rivalries, things can often get out of hand. The last two meetings between the two have resulted in 15 cards in total, so picking the Over 3.5 bet seems fairly reasonable. When it comes to cards and derbies, this is one of the most reliable tips to ever follow. Another pick that you can make is there to be a red card in this match-up.
