River Plate vs Aldosivi
Argentina – Primera Division
Date: Thursday, 22nd June 2017
Kick off at 01:30 UK/ 02:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Monumental Antonio Vespucio Liberti.
River Plate are out of the battle for the title two rounds before the end of the season having suffered back-to-back defeats to San Lorenzo and Racing Club.
Millonario, however, have to get back on the winning ways and claim three points in the last home match of the season to keep the third position and qualify for the next term of Copa Libertadores.
Marcelo Gallardo was furious with his men who allowed way too many cheap goals in mentioned losses to San Lorenzo and Racing Club.
River conceded as many as five goals during the negative run and the Sunday’s loss to Racing marked the fourth consecutive game on the home pitch without a victory for Millonario.
The visitors have concerns of their own ahead of one of the toughest away fixtures in the league.
Aldosivi are in a very difficult position as the potential defeat to River Plate would probably get them into the danger zone.
Walter Perazzo’s side will thus determine their destiny in the last round when they are set to play fellow strugglers Olimpo for the place in the elite class of the Argentine football.
River Plate vs Aldosivi: Head to head
Aldosivi shocked River Plate in January this year when they claimed a 1-3 win from Monumental in Torneos de Verano.
Interestingly, River Plate never managed to beat Aldosivi in four head to head matches. However, this will be their first ever meeting in Primera Division and the hosts will be massive favourites to finally end this unpleasant run.
River Plate vs Aldosivi: Prediction
Aldosivi conceded as many as four goals to Boca Juniors at the weekend and we expect a similar treatment from Millonario in mid-week.
Sebastian Driussi and Lucas Alario will be motivated to secure a comprehensive win and keep the third position and the spot in Copa Libertadores.
