Guarani vs River Plate Prediction 5 July 2017

Tournament: Copa Libertadores
Location: Estadio Defensores del Chaco
Match date: 05.07.2017 at 01:45

On July 5 2017 at 01:45 in the first leg game of the Copa Libertadores Round of 16 at the Estadio Defensores del Chaco Guarani are going to play against River Plate.

Guarani play on the Paraguay national elite division. The first part of the current season in that championship which is called Apertura, is already over and Guarani managed to achieve pretty good results in it. In their 22 matches played they won 15 times. Drew 3 times and lost 4 times with 48:31 goal difference which let them take the second place in the standings. As for the group stage of the Copa Libertadores, they gained 11 points in their 6 matches in the Group 8 and it let them make it to the play-offs of the competition from the second place.

As for one of the best clubs of Argentina, River Plate, they showed pretty good results in the national elite division and yet it wasn’t their best one. They gained 56 points in their 30 matches played and took the second place in the standings 7 points below the leaders. They couldn’t avoid making a few mistakes at the group stage of the Copa Libertadores where they gained 13 points and took the first place anyway.

The teams have already played two games against each other. Both of these games were played in July 2015. In the first game in Argentina River Plate won 2:0 and in Paraguay the teams drew 1:1. Even though Guarani are pretty good now and they are playing at home this time, the bookmakers still consider the guests to be the favorites of the match. We agree with the bookies this time and think that River Plate are going to avoid a loss this time.
