THE TEAM NEWS

HURACAN

  • Huracan are in 15th place of the standings after winning just once in their first five league matches (W1, D2, L2). They are currently riding a three-game winless run (D1, L2).
  • At home, however, Huracan are undefeated and have taken four points out of a possible six with a win over Colon and a draw with Argentinos Juniors.
  • Nicolas Romat is the lone absentee for Huracan ahead of this match since he’s dealing with an injury, but otherwise they have a fully fit squad at the coach's disposal

RIVER PLATE

  • River Plate are in 10th place so far after five Super Liga matches, with their current record reading W2, D2, L1, although they have gone winless in their last two outings (D1, L1).
  • However, La Banda Sangre has been one of the top sides on the road during the young league term, taking four points out of six possible (W1, D1) away from home.
  • Juan Fernando Quintero remains out since he is recovering from a lingering knee problem. Meanwhile, Leonardo Ponzio is suspended and not expected to play here alongside Javier Pinola, who is also suspended.

THE PREDICTION

It’s safe to say both sides have performed below the expectations required thus far. However, River have the stronger squad if we compare these two sides, and they should go with their best XI available since they need to achieve better results as soon as possible. Expect River to be favourites ahead of this match.
