River Plate vs Defensa y Justicia Prediction

Boca Juniors is just three points behind River Plate and any mistakes from the latter will be capitalized by the second-placed team in the league table as it stands. In the meantime, another three points would help Defensa to stay within the top nine promotion zone.

The desires being said, let us look into their current form. River Plate is on a 6 game winning streak in their fixtures following a 0-2 win on the road against Estudiantes in their previous clash.

On the other hand, Defensa y Justicia has been unbeaten in their previous 8 matches with three draws in it. They will be on the back of a 3-0 home win against Rosario in their prior encounter.

Even though being the top club in the competition, River Plate did take some hits at home. Their four losses in 10 home matches will not be a concern for the host though.

In sharp contrast, Defensa has been winless in three of their last five matches on the road. Having won 5 of their 10 away games, the visitors will certainly put up a fight in Buenos Aires.

Since the host has a slight upper hand over Defensa, River Plate will probably create more chances in the game. The betting tips for the home win seem favorable for the punters at 1.40 while a close encounter suggests the probability of goals under 3.5 within ninety minutes with the same odds.
