Colon vs River Plate Predictions and Match Preview

Colon vs River Plate
South America – Copa Sudamericana
Date: Tuesday, 28th May 2019
Kick-off at 23.15 UK/ 00.15 CET
Venue: Estadio Brigadier General Estanislao López (Santa Fe).

Colon managed to wade through the challenge of the first leg, on the road, which could have swayed the tie in River Plate’s favor. But the Argentine team took the challenge and came out unscathed. The first leg ended in a goalless draw, and now with the home advantage for this return leg, River will be under huge pressure – especially considering their struggles on the road and Colon’s home form.

The last match-day, Colon won their home tie with a 3-0 scoreline, over Acassuso, and the team has not conceded a single home goal in the last four games. Meanwhile, River lost their last away tie, against Juventud, to a 4-1 scorecard.

Expect the hosts of this tie to come out the winner.
