River Plate and The Strongest meet in Buenos Aires on Wednesday for a crucial Copa Libertadores group game.
This is the final match of the initial phase, and River Plate currently occupy second in Group D, but it’s all to play for, with no club assured of qualification as of yet, the only group where that is the case.
Just three points currently separates table-toppers Fluminense from The Strongest in fourth, with River Plate and Sporting Cristal sandwiched in between, making this the most exciting group heading into the concluding matchday.

River Plate team news
Enzo Francescoli remains without long-term absentee Bruno Zuculini, who has been sidelined since February, though he is nearing a return to full fitness. Former West Brom, Newcastle and Everton striker Salomon Rondon faces the second suspension of his two-game ban after he was involved in a post-match brawl against Sporting Cristal on matchday four.
The Strongest team news
Tigre have a number of players who will likely prove problematic for River Player. Chief among those is Enrique Triverio, whose four goals in this season’s Copa Libertadores places him joint-fourth in the current ‘Golden Boot’ race. He also bagged a brace in the reverse fixture against River Plate, a 3-1 win for The Strongest.
