Club Atlético River Plate vs Club Atlético Vélez Sarsfield Prediction 7 July 2022

Tournament: Copa Libertadores
Location: Estadio Monumental Antonio Vespucio Liberti, Buenos Aires
Match date: 07/07/2022 at 01:30

Another match of the Copa Libertadores round of 16 will be held in Buenos Aires, where the local River Plate will test Velez Sarsfield for strength.

In the second half of June, River Plate first prevailed over Union Santa Fe (5:1) and Lanus (2:1), after which they lost 2:3 in a vigorous shootout with Atlético Huracan. It should be noted that in the spring the Millionaires performed well in the Copa Libertadores group, where their rivals were Fortaleza, Colo-Colo and Allianza.

At the same time, Vélez Sarsfield made it to the next stage of the tournament only due to winning 3:2 against Nacional and 4:0 against Estudiantes, they were in danger of being relegated. In the domestic arena, the Blue-Blacks are occupying only the twenty-first position, having capitulated to Atletico Tucuman the day before, 0:1.

A week ago, a rather unexpected victory with a difference of one goal was obtained by Velez Sarsfield, but the more ambitious River Plate, with the active support of the home crowd, can improve the situation in their favor. We predict at least a minimal win for the hosts.
