Estudiantes vs River Plate Prediction
Estudiantes failed to keep up to the five-game unbeaten run in the league after losing to Defensa y Justicia with a 1-2 scoreline in their previous encounter. However, four of their last six matches have ended in a draw.
River Plate, on the other hand, will be coming in hot with a five-game winning streak in the campaign following a 1-0 victory at home against Banfield in their prior clash. They have recorded only two losses within the last ten fixtures in all major contests.
With this brief outline, it is clear that River Plate is in a better form than the host. It has to be noted that the visitor is at the top of the table with 13 points more than Estudiantes.
Another reason to back up River Plate is that 8 of their overall 13 wins in the campaign were during their trips on the road. In the meantime, the host will be holing their home ground advantage. But it will be not effective when facing a stronger team.
Besides, the home team has won six of their ten home matches so far in the league this season. Even in their prior home match, Estudiantes failed to bag the bragging rights in front of the home crowd.
In sharp contrast, River Plate has not lost in any of their ten away fixtures in the campaign until now. So, we can expect a probable win for the traveling side at La Plata.
Furthermore, River Plate has averaged 2.6 goals per match in their away games in the league this season. Since they are facing a weaker side in the table, we can expect likely over 1.5 goals within ninety minutes.
