River Plate form and stats

River Plate have collected 12 points from their Primera Division home games so far after 3-3-1. It's trouble wherever River Plate are playing these days as they have suffered four straight defeats now, regardless of arena. They really need to get back to winning ways.

River are anxiously hoping for a goal as it's been 180 minutes since the last one in league fixtures. (Scored by M. Arezo).

River lost their last game at Progreso after a 0-1 scoreline.

Preceding that match was the home game against Cerro Largo that was lost 0-4.

Sud América form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team on their Primera Division travels is 3 wins, 0 draws and 5 defeats. Recent form does not give América much hope, as the visitors have lost three games in a row. River Plate will be a tough nut to crack.

Sud América aren't clicking offensively as they have gone 285 league minutes without a goal. J. Ramirez was the last player to find the net.

Home advantage was not enough for América in their previous game, as they lost their Primera Division-match, hosting Liverpool, 0-1.

A 0-2 defeat away at Cerrito before that.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting América as they have only managed to score 7 times from 8 away games in the league. América's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 13 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

This was the end result when the participants faced each other previously this campaign; Sud América - River 1-2. As for the last ten games between these two teams, there's six River victories, zero draws and four Sud América wins. Over/under statistics; eight of these games ended with three goals or more, two matches with two goals or less.
