Expert Betting Tips
The current form of the River Plate differs from the form in which the team was in the tournament's group stage when they were beating everyone. They have only two wins and three defeats in their last five games, but Velez Sarsfield cannot boast stability either. That said, the Libertadores Cup matches are a priority for both teams; reaching the quarter-finals would end the permanent failures in the Argentinian championship, and each club is looking to achieve that success. At the same time, the pair are low-scoring, especially in the Libertadores Cup. We believe that the upcoming match will also turn out to be unproductive, and as for the outcomes, we are on the side of the future hosts of the field.
