River Plate vs. Lanús: to climb positions

The Argentine Super League is more exciting than ever and after four days some teams begin to demonstrate their hierarchy and candidate veneer to fight until the last moment to keep all the glory. Indeed, next Saturday night, River Plate will receive Lanús in a confrontation with a lot of history and a lot at stake.

It is a clash between two teams that have individualities and hierarchy to fight at the top of the competition. However, despite the sports predictions that gave him as a candidate, River Plate was somewhat relegated and remains in the middle of the position table.

Something similar happens with Lanús who was able to break an adverse streak and win his first three points to drive away some ghosts that dared to put his technical director, Jorge Almirón, in check.

Last River Plate matches

Lack of effectiveness in the rival goal, irregularity in the results, lack of control of the matches and even individuals far below their potential were some of the ghosts that invaded River Plate during the beginning of the professional tournament.

However, Marcelo Gallardo's Millionaire always has an ace up his sleeve and after several games where he did not find the best version of himself, he was able to leave the bad streak behind and climb positions as sports forecasts anticipated.

Currently, River Plate is in the thirteenth position in the standings as a result of five points after four disputed days where it obtained a win, two draws and one fall so far in the contest. Likewise, the Millionaire converted five goals in favor and only received one, showing that the main flaw is in the offensive facet.

River Plate's debut in the tournament was with a goalless draw in the visit to Defense and Justice where he had situations to keep the three points, although he also suffered and was able to leave Florencio Varela empty-handed. Subsequently, the Millionaire again equalized goalless against a clearly inferior rival according to sports betting such as Atlético Tucumán.

To add insult to injury, River Plate lost on the third matchday against Colón de Santa Fe, although they knew how to dispel any specter of crisis with an unappealable 5-1 win against Unión de Santa Fe, on the last matchday. It is worth remembering that the Millionaire wants to redeem himself after a League Cup where he was prematurely eliminated in the quarterfinals against Tigre.

On the other hand, River Plate is already beginning to focus its mentality on the match against Talleres de Córdoba, for the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores.

Last Lanus matches

Like the present that the Millionaire is going through, Jorge Almirón's Garnet is not going through the best version of him. It is far from being that forceful Lanús with an attractive game that knew how to remain in the memory of the fans after beating the greatest of Argentine soccer.

The current reality of Lanús is different, since it has many players from the quarry, although it also has experienced players such as José Sand, Lautaro Acosta and its goalkeeper Monetti. Despite this, the results were slow in coming, but Lanús was finally able to put his losing streak behind him after a hard-fought 1-0 victory against Colón de Santa Fe.

Previously, Lanús had debuted with a bittersweet draw in his visit to Rosario Central and then drew 1-1 at home against Defensa y Justicia, losing 2-1 to Atlético Tucumán despite showing some footballing improvements on the offensive side.

Indeed, Lanús is in sixteenth place in the standings with five points after a win, two draws and one fall so far in the competition. Likewise, Lanús converted three goals and received the same amount, showing weaknesses in the attack, although a defensive strength that he will have to maintain to climb positions.

Background between both

River Plate and Lanús played 51 matches in the Argentine League with 20 wins for the Millionaire, 19 Garnet wins and 12 draws. Likewise, at the Monumental Stadium they met 24 times with eight away wins for Lanús, five draws and eleven local victories for River Plate.

One thing to keep in mind when it comes to sports betting is that the last match between the two at the Monumental Stadium was River Plate's 3-0 victory on the third day of the 2019-2020 season.

The magnifying glass on…

River Plate has hierarchical players in all lines, but Julián Álvarez is the one who dazzles all the flashes being the favorite of the Argentine Professional League Predictions to open the scoring next Saturday. Indeed, the striker destined for Manchester City accumulates two cries in the tournament and is the top scorer for the Millionaire. Likewise, Enzo Fernández and Braian Romero can also unbalance at any time considering that they arrive fired up after scoring against Unión.

The magnifying glass on…

Jorge Almirón's Garnet has several players to watch closely. However, Lautaro Acosta, Lucas Varaldo and Ignacio Malcorra are the only ones who converted in the contest and accumulate a shout each. We must not forget the experience and hierarchy of José Sand who can surprise at any time.

Sports bets

The main bookmakers agree on the Argentine Professional League predictions for next Saturday's clash. Indeed, the local victory of River Plate offers a price of 1.50, placing the tie at 4.00 and the away victory of Lanús at 7.00.

Bearing in mind that surprises are the order of the day, the double chance is always a good option. River or tie offer 1.10, tie or Lanús 2.50 and River or Lanús 1.22.

On the other hand, if both teams convert, the sum to be received will be 2.10, while the correct score of 1-0 in favor of River Plate offers a fee of 6.00.
