River Plate vs Palmeiras Betting Tips – Copa Libertadores: Runner-up in the last edition of the Copa Libertadores, River Plate is one small step away from reaching another final.
River Plate vs Palmeiras In the group phase of this cup, Marcelo Gallardo’s team easily overcame the competition offered by LDU Quito, São Paulo and Deportivo Binacional.
In the first round following the group stage, the Argentine team eliminated Athletico Paranaense with way more difficulties than it was expected, before beating Nacional de Montevideo without major struggle in the quarter finals.
Last Saturday, River broke a cycle of three straight wins by drawing against their arch-rival Boca Juniors (2-2).
Palmeiras has made an excellent run in this Libertadores Cup and dreams of returning to the big stage of the final, curiously now with a Portuguese in charge (Abel Ferreira).
The São Paulo state team walked through the group stage calmly, and before putting up a little more work in order to knock out Libertad (in the quarter-finals), Palmeiras managed to easily beat Delfin.
Halfway through last week, Abel Ferreira’s team confirmed the qualification for the Brazilian Cup final, after beating America-MG by 2-0.
In the first-leg of a knock out that will provide the ticket to the much desired Copa Libertadores final, I expect a much more tactical and calculating game by both teams, rather than a broken and open one.
Especially Palmeiras, who will play away from home and for whom the draw would not be a bad result, not least because the decision is reserved for Brazilian soil.

River Plate vs Palmeiras Betting Tips:
I expect a more affirmative River Plate, despite avoiding taking many risks, knowing the quality in transition of Abel Ferreira’s team, a coach with little experience at this level and who should try to build a very defensive strategy.
