Union vs River Plate
Argentina Primera Division
Date: Monday, 10 February 2020
Kick-Off at 00:45 UK
Venue: Estadio 15 de Abril, Santa Fe

There are only five rounds left to be played in Argentina Primera Division and River Plate are very close to clinch another domestic title. They have three points advantage over their eternal rivals Boca Juniors, which means the upcoming match against Union in Santa Fe has massive importance.

Marcelo Gallardo and his boys are big favorites for the win judging by the 1.61 odds. Hosts have lost only one out of last four games, so they definitely shouldn’t be underestimated.

There were a couple of slip-ups for River in the recent past. Narrow 0-1 home loss to San Lorenzo has a shocker, but the squad got serious and connected three straight victories against Independiente, Godoy Cruz and Central Cordoba with a total goal difference of 5-1.

River Plate are the most efficient team in the league, bagging 34 goals in 18 games. A big majority of those were scored by Colombian striker Rafael Borre (11 goals). He is expected to lead the attack in Santa Fe again.

Union vs River Plate: Head-to-head

Despite shocking River Plate in the previous season with 1-0 victory on the road, Union don’t have good results against this team.
