River Plate will take on Gimnasia la Plata in round 9 of Argentine Liga Profesional. The match will take place at Estadio Antonio Vespucio Liberti in Buenos Aires on Friday, July 22nd. This season,
Rio Plate has been disappointing. In recent years, the “Millionaires”, have been actively collecting trophies. They won a 36th place in history, and they have now won another championship title. The title of “gold” was already taken in 2014. The current draw shows that the grandiose is not able to defend his title. The Liga is not the only place where problems are accumulating. The Grand was already relegated from the Copa Libertadores. They left the group but were eliminated in round one of the playoffs by their countrymen Veles Sarsfield (0-1 and 0-0). It advances in the cup in the domestic arena. Gallardo’s wards are too prone to misfires in the championship. The revenge against Veles didn’t work. They lost the away victory to Veles because of the goal in the 93rd minutes.
GIMNA in 2022 has been noticeably improved. The “Wolves”, however, never won the league title nor the national cup. Even the 2nd position could not have been taken after 2005. After changing mentors, it was possible to finish last season in the 11th spot. After a brief pause, Nestor Gorosito’s wards look combat-ready. Only bad luck prevented La Plata’s representative from reaching the playoffs in Copa Diego Maradona. The team managed to score a respectable 24 points in the group round. It was indeed, and it showed a positive start in Liga. Gimnasia is gaining 2 points per match in the first round of the new draw. This is a great result for the Argentine championship due to its intensity and high level of competition. The last round was not successful. 0-2 atletico Tucuman away and 0-0 at Colon.
Rio Plate won three of the four head-to-head matches in which they were involved, while Colon was unable to win. Copa Diego Maradona has already seen Gimnasia defeated 4-0 by the giant from their home city of Buenos Aires. Everyone is certain that River Plate will win, judging by the odds. We will bet neutral on the score of “over 2.5”.
Prediction: Goals under 2.5
