Huracan vs River Plate
Argentina – Superliga
Date: Monday, 13 August 2018
Kick-Off at 0:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Tomas Adolfo Duco (Buenos Aires).
Huracan are going to face River Plate in the opening round of the Argentine Superliga on Monday midnight UK time.
Home side has been very successful last season as they finished on the 4th spot and managed to secure a direct place in the Copa Libertadores group stage for the next campaign.
Their run of eleven matches without a defeat launched them into the top four and they finished two point ahead of Talleres Cordoba. Gustavo Alfaro’s side allowed just one defeat at home pitch last season and it was their main source of points.
Although they were not too efficient, the hosts were playing much disciplined in the back.
River Plate completed their last campaign on the 8th place, but the things could be worse if they haven’t improved their form significantly in the very finish of the season.
The visitors are enjoying a great run of 21 matches without losing, including all competitions.
Enzo Perez and the lads have been very confident in the domestic cup this summer, while they managed to snatch a goalless draw in the first leg match of the Copa Libertadores eight-finals away to their rivals Racing Club although they finished the match with ten players on the field.

From 2010 to 2015, River Plate had a very good record against their rivals, but since then they’ve celebrated just once and lost in three occasions. Their head to head clashes have usually been low scoring ones.
Huracan vs River Plate: Prediction
The visitors are in an excellent form and they should be able to keep their run going after this clash. They are slight favourites and River Plate should get back home with three points from this match.
Home side will put a great resistance and they should hold this match under 2.5 margin. As the tradition of their matches says that we shouldn’t expect to see too many goals, we are going to put our money on Under 2.5 tip.
