River Plate vs Chacarita Juniors – Argentinian Superliga : River Plate hosts Chacarita Juniors this Sunday at the Monumental de Nunez Stadium
River Plate was the team that invested in most players in South America going into this season. They spent over 30 million Euros in players such as Lucas Pratto, Prato, Quintero and Armani.
Basically, they did everything with the clear objective of winning the Copa Libertadores. But their start of the season couldn’t be any worse.
The team that was already doing poorly in the first half of the Argentinian league last year, had a terrifying start to the season, even with all those star players.
The team only has 1 win in 5 matches in 2018. On the Copa Libertadores, the debut was actually decent, with the team getting a draw against Flamengo, after trailing twice. On the Argentinian league, River sits only in 21st place, with 19 points conquered.

Away from home, they don’t have a single win, with 2 draws and 7 losses on the 9 matches played so far. River is really living a terrible period.
But on the Copa Libertadores against Flamengo, they left an impression that they could do more.
And they have quality for more.
Chacarita, by everything they’ve shown, seem to be the perfect opponent for the home side to recover here. The Over 1.5 Team Goals for River and the -1.25 AH appear as bets with value here.
