River Plate vs Deportivo Tachira Predictions


Both teams are always assured of their fate in Group H, so a low-key affair seems likely.

I fancy the hosts to win and keep a clean sheet in the process. 

  • River Plate won 9 of their last 10 home matches (Copa Libertadores)
  • River Plate kept a clean sheet in 6 of their last 9 home victories (Copa Libertadores)
  • River Plate scored exactly 2 goals in their last 5 home wins (Copa Libertadores)
  • Deportivo Tachira lost 4 of their last 5 matches (Copa Libertadores)
  • Deportivo Tachira failed to score in 3 of their last 5 matches (Copa Libertadores)

Head to Head


River Plate are unbeaten in three previous matches against Deportivo Tachira. The Argentines eased to a 2-0 win in Venezuela in April. 

River Plate Form


River Plate return to home comforts after back-to-back away defeats against Temperley (Copa Argentina) and Argentinos Juniors (LPA) last week. After a penalty shoot-out defeat against their lower league opponents last Wednesday, Martín Demichelis' side slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Argentinos this past weekend. 

Los Millonarios are a much more reliable side at the Estadio Mâs Monumental. River won eight of their last nine matches on home soil, while they are unbeaten in 14 of their last 15 in Buenos Aires. 

Already assured of top spot in Group H, River Plate scored exactly two goals in all five group games this season. 

River Plate Team News


River boss Demichelis has a handful of expected absentees on Thursday. Nacho Fernández, Leandro González Pírez, Pity Martínez, Ramiro Funes Mori, and Manuel Lanzini are all expected to remain sidelined. 

Deportivo Tachira Form


Deportivo Tachira bring their continental campaign to a conclusion on Thursday, still searching for their first win in Group H. Deportivo picked up a solitary point from five games played in the section.

Eduardo Saragó's off-form side have failed to win seven of their last eight games across all competitions (W1, D1, L6).

The Venezuelan champions have a terrible away record in the Copa Libertadores. Tachira failed to win 48 of their last 50 away matches since 1989 (W2, D12, L36). 

Deportivo Tachira Team News


Deportivo boss Sarago has no new injury issues to deal with on Thursday. Carlos Vivas and Haibrany Ruíz Díaz are the only players still unavailable for the Aurinegro.

Verdict

A low-scoring home seems likely in Thursday's Copa Libertadores contest.

I'm taking River to win and to keep a clean sheet against their out-of-form visitors.
