Godoy Cruz vs River Plate Prediction

Godoy Cruz were on the road the last match-day, and they had taken on Justicia. With a goal apiece in each half, the hosts recorded a 2-0 victory.

Elsewhere, River Plate too were on the road, and had locked horns with Independiente. In the extremely undisciplined affair, the visitors recorded a narrow 1-2 win.

As things stand this Sunday, River Plate are easily the favorites. They are the toppers of the league at present, and were the Libertadores champions the last season. They have also scored the most number of goals this campaign, and remains the only team to touch the 30-goal mark.

On the other hand, Godoy are placed dead-last in the table, and importantly have conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition. 

In addition, Cruz were winless in 17 of their last 20 match-ups, and of these 15 were losses. At home, the team lost six of their former seven matches, and failed to score in four of those.

Moreover, River Plate recorded nine of the last eleven h2h wins, and are on a five-match winning run at this venue. The team also had conceded a total of one goal from their last six visits to this stadium, and the last they lost here was back in 2009.

Considering these observations, it’s conclueded that River Plate, with the best offense in the league, are going to have a memorable outing at the Estadio Malvinas Argentinas , against the worst defense in the competition.
