There are 1 periods that stand out in the last 20 home matches for all competitions: they have scored 6 of their 16 goals between minutes (76 ‘- 90’).

River Plate hopes to repeat the same story from the first round, when it defeated Huancayo away from home.

Their attack has scored regularly, as they have managed to score in 4 of the last 5 matches in this competition.

In 15 games, they suffered the first goal 5 times and never got the comeback.

The team no longer has a chance to advance and hopes to at least show better football in these last matches for the South American.

Therefore, it must be closed to hold the marker and not suffer any risk.
