River Plate will go in search of their first win in Copa Liga Profesional Group D when they welcome Rosario Central to the Estadio Antonio Vespucio Liberti on Sunday at 00:15 (UK Time).
Although River Plate topped their Copa Libertadores group with 13 points from six games, they didn’t start this Copa Liga Profesional campaign in the same manner, losing unexpectedly at home against Banfield recently, despite taking the lead after just six minutes. That was their only second loss on home soil in nine months, leaving them bottom of Group D. They now face Rosario Central, who managed to win their first group match. However, River Plate hold the better head-to-head record in this tie, having won 10, lost five and drawn eight of their 23 previous meetings.
Rosario Central, on the flip side, did well to beat Godoy Cruz in the opening round of Copa Liga Profesional. It wasn’t the most convincing victory, though, as they needed an 85th-minute strike from Lucas Gamba to get all three points. Prior to this win, Rosario Central were on a three-game losing streak in which they conceded nine goals and scored just three. The most worrying fact is that Rosario are currently winless in six away games while losing the most recent three of them.
Will River Plate get their first points on the board in this group? Or will Rosario make it back-to-back victories?
