River Plate vs Platense Prediction

On one hand, we have a River Plate side that’s won three matches in a row; they’ve scored nine goals in that three-game stretch, allowing no goals. On the other hand, Platense have been going through a rough patch lately; they are coming off back-to-back losses, with no wins in their last five matches. It’s also fair to point out that Platense have struggled to find the back of the net in recent weeks, as they blanked in four of their last eight matches. As a matter of fact, Platense did not score more than one goal in any of their last eight games.

Furthermore, River Plate have dominated Platense in the past; as they won all of the last five clashes between these sides. Taking everything into consideration, we are confident that River Plate will win whilst keeping a clean sheet.

Our Tip: River Plate to win to nil

River Plate overcame all sorts of problems at Patronato last weekend; although they faced 20 shots and a penalty, Marcelo Gallardo’s men held their own in a 1:0 win. With that in mind, River Plate have now won three consecutive matches; they’ve averaged three goals per game in that stretch, allowing no goals. As a result of their excellent form, Marcelo Gallardo’s men find themselves in fourth-place; they’ve accumulated 41 points from 24 matches. River Plate will be eyeing their fourth consecutive win as Platense come visiting.

Platense Team News

Things have not gone too well for Platense in recent weeks; they’ve won just one of their last eight matches, with no wins in their last five games. It’s worth noting that Platense will not be too high on confidence, as they lost their last two games. Also, Platense have struggled away from home this season; they’ve lost five of their last eight road games, with one win and two draws. As Platense make the trip to the Estadio Monumental Liberti, it’ll be interesting to see if they can withstand an in-form River Plate side.
