Copa Libertadores: River Plate x Dep Tachira, Match Preview, Odds and Predictions(31/05/2024)

River Plate plays Deportivo Tachira on Thursday at Estadio Monumental, where they may win their group in the Copa Libertadores for the second time in their past three visits.

River Plate x Dep Tachira Team News

Ramiro Funes Mori is probably out of the picture on Thursday owing to an illness, Manuel Lanzini has a painful foot, and Ignacio Fernandez has a back problem; neither player is anticipated to be back until early June.

On the fifth matchday, Los Millonarios defeated Libertad thanks to a brace from Miguel Borja, while captain Franco Armani only needed to make one save to record his third clean sheet of the season.

Yanniel Hernandez will not be available to Tachira after his straight red card in the second half of the match against Nacional.

Nelson Hernandez and Carlos Robles were replaced in their starting 11 by Jefre Vargas and Carlos Calzadilla from matchdays four and five.

Head To Head And Previous Matches

A superb first five games at the Libertadores have guaranteed River Plate a spot in the round of sixteen for the tenth year running.

First place for the first time since 2022 seems set to be theirs; only a loss on their last day of play and a five-goal win by Nacional would stand in their way.

Since losing to Fluminense 3-1 at home on their penultimate matchday in May 2021, the previous four-time champions of this competition have won eight straight Libertadores group matches at Estadio Monumental.

They have kept five clean sheets at Estadio Monumental in the group stage of this competition and won their past three home games in all competitions without conceding.

If they win or draw on Thursday, Martin Demichelis's squad will finish the group stage unblemished for the second time in the last three tournaments.

In this tournament, Los Millonarios had only lost once at home against a Venezuelan team—1-0 to Caracas in the 2007 group round.

On matchday five, Tachira conceded an early second-half goal and was unable to recover, so no Venezuelan team will advance to the knockout round of this competition for the eighth consecutive year.

For the first time since 2015, Aurinegro would only finish the group stage of this tournament with a win if they were able to get the maximum points in this match.

The San Cristobal squad has lost its past three away games in this competition's group stage; its last win as the visiting team came in April 2022 (2-1 vs. Independiente Petrolero).

The men of Eduardo Sarago are losing four straight competitive games as the visitors and are winless in all competitions.

This year, five of Deportivo's nine goals surrendered in this tournament have come after the break, and they have yet to score in the second half of a game.

Although they have never won a Copa Libertadores match in Argentina, Tachira did get one point in their previous group stage 2004 visit to Estadio Monumental (2-2).

Our Predictions

River Plate to win and Multi-Goal 3-5  @1.60 on
