River Plate can boast of staying firm in the fight of its three competitive fronts. In the Super League it is only one point away from first place, next Thursday it will play the semifinals of the Argentine Cup where it is a wide favorite and the most important event will be on Saturday 23 in the final of the Copa Libertadores.
First, the ‘millionaire’ must deal with the date 13 of the league contest that comes with consecutive wins over Columbus (2-1) and Aldosivi (1-2) both with goals from Borré and De La Cruz. Now in front of Rosario Central he will look for his fourth win followed in the Monumental. The ‘rogue’ team marches mid-table with 8 points less than Buenos Aires. He dragged a 9-day run without winning (7 consecutive draws) until last week he hit Godoy Cruz Cole 5-2. In his most recent match outside Rosario he was thrashed 3-0 by Estudiantes.
In the last two decades Rosario Central could not beat River Plate as a visitor.
The last time they collided in the Monumental, River won 2-0 with goals from Borré and Pratto.
Before beating Godoy, Rosario added 8 straight games scoring at most one goal.
River has the players with the most assists of the tournament: Suárez and De La Cruz.
PREDICTION: Both teams to score / NO @ 1,58
