San Lorenzo vs River Plate
Argentina – Primera Division
Date: Sunday, 4th June 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK Time
Venue: Estadio Pedro Bidegain, Buenos Aires.

This match is sure to be a tasty clash as two local Buenos Aires teams come head to head when San Lorenzo take on the mighty River Plate.

San Lorenzo are just one place and one point from a play-off position for the Copa Libertadores and so they will be 100% motivated to win this match. But they will have to pick themselves up after losing back to back games, first Aldosivi and then Racing Club and these losses put an end to a 3 game winning streak.

Whilst San Lorenzo have won 8 from 13 home matches they have started to wobble lately and lost twice from their last 3 games in front of their home fans.

Boca Juniors draw at Huracan let in River Plate back into contention when they beat Atletico Tucuman, now there is just one point that separates the famous clubs.

River have won 13 of their last 15 points and on form they would be top of the league. River have not lost for the past 10 games and away from home they have the 2nd best record winning 26 points from a possible 39.

They have won their last 5 away matches scoring 13 goals in the process and this includes beating arch rivals Boca 3-1.
