River Plate are one of the best teams in Latin American history. Not only have they raced to the top of the Group D table in the Libertadores, but they have done it unbeaten. Surely count on River Plate to secure a win against the struggling Santa Fe.
As of now, the Argentine club have scored the most number of goals in the group, and have conceded the least as well. They have set their sights on the knockouts, and this fixture is a great opportunity to pull ahead of the rest of the teams in the group.
Meanwhile, Santa Fe are yet to record a win. They have conceded the most, and have scored the least in Group D. Moreover, they also have a poor h2h record against this foe, and are from an inferior domestic league as well.
Surely count on a River Plate victory.

Santa Fe are on a four-game winless run, and it’s been over a month since they have recorded a victory at this venue.
