River Plate vs Estudiantes: Preview and Predictions

River Plate vs Estudiantes
Argentine Superliga
Date: Friday, 11 May 2018
Kick-Off at 00:00 UK / 01:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Monumental Antonio Vespucio Liberti, Buenos Aires.

River Plate look to have found the winning formula as the streak of six wins and a draw in last seven league ties saw them cancelling the horrific start to the campaign. Los Millonarios are now on the brink of the top ten in the league ladder and they will have a nice chance to keep the excellent form going on Thursday evening when Estudiantes come to visit Estadio Monumental.

Furthermore, River’s streak stretches to 10 wins and two draws in all competitions, including the 0-2 win over fierce rivals Boca Juniors in the Super Cup final. The head coach Marcelo Gallardo has reasons to be thrilled particularly with his side’s defensive displays as Los Millonarios only conceded a single goal in last eight matches in all competitions.

River Plate vs Estudiantes: Head-to-head

River lead the head to head tie by two wins coming into their 36th meeting with Estudiantes.

Only one of last four H2H games saw three or more goals.

La Roja won two and drew one of last three league clashes with River Plate.

River Plate vs Estudiantes: Prediction

The visitors will come into the game in a completely opposite mood. They are struggling badly for goals having notched only two in last seven games across competitions. Knowing that River Plate were very tough to break down in recent months, we just have to back the hosts to keep a clean sheet as the top betting option here. The odds are set at 1.66.

Gallardo’s men should be in full control from the very first whistle and we expect them to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end, a scenario priced up at the 2.25 odds.
