Alianza Lima vs River Plate – Copa Libertadores :Alianza Lima once again takes part in the group stage of the Copa Libertadores
After last season’s participation where they also took part and it was one to forget.
Alianza Lima is a good team in Peru, with a reputable dimension, but on this South-American competition, they don’t usually do very well.
They want to improve and erase the poor impression they’ve left in the competition and they are on a strong and competitive group.
In the league, they have 2 victories at home and 1 loss away from home. The illusion and the excitement are huge to host the current Libertadores’ champions.
They have an experienced manager that already won an Argentinian title with Boca, which means he has knowledge of Argentinian football.
River Plate are the current Copa Libertadores’ title-holders and they will do anything within their reach to defend this title. They have a strong squad, one of the best ones in South America and it will be very complicated to stop this team on this competition.
However, they are the juiciest target and the pressure on them will always be higher since they are the current champions.
In the Argentinian league, they have been improving a lot and they are now starting to get closer to the top spots.
They are coming off a good streak of results and they have been scoring a lot of goals on the previous encounters. In this group, they are the big favourites and they’ve acknowledged their favouritism in the group, although Internacional will also be a complicated opponent.
Alianza Lima vs River Plate – Betting Tip and Prediction: :
Alianza Lima has a lot of motivation to stop the current champions. Naturally, the Argentinians are favourite here and in normal conditions, they should win.
However, I really like this handicap favouring the home side, that is fierce, and has a manager that knows River and its qualities well, and with this match being played in Peru, I think it will be tough for River, although the Argentinians are coming off good performances on the last couple of matches.
I’m going with this handicap favouring Alianza Lima that has a lot of value and I don’t expect this to be an easy match for River, where they will win by 2 or more goals.
