Last Updated on September 28, 2023 5:56 pm by Erwin Noguera

We are entering the halfway point in the second phase of the Argentina Primera Division, and things are quite interesting for both groups. The top teams are fighting it out and the rest are not staying behind, so we are excited to see how the tournament continues to unfold.

Boca Juniors are trying to pick up the pace, as they have been dropped back to the 9th spot in Group B due to their recent performances, but now, as they host the clash in La Bombonera, they are looking to get their momentum going.

It is River Plate, who currently sits in 4th place in Group A, that will be coming in confidently looking to get a victory and climb the spots on the scorecards. Their current 3 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses run keeps unfolding.

The Superclásico del Fútbol Argentino is always a spectacle to foresee, so we cannot wait.

Final Betting Analysis: Boca Juniors vs. River Plate

Something tells us that Boca Juniors will not find a way to score a goal against River Plate who, with suffering, could perhaps score and maintain the advantage.

With this in mind, we’re predicting a close 0-1 lead for the visitors at the end. A single goal will be enough for the ‘Millonario’ to get a lot closer to the top of the scoreboard.

Look for a straight win on the Moneyline River. If you put $100 on River Plate at +118, you’ll be looking at a $118 win with a total payout of $218.
