      Trujillanos vs River Plate Predictions

      Trujillanos finished runners up in the Venezuelan Primera Division last season and as such managed to secure qualification to the Copa Libertadores for only the 2nd time in their history. They couldn’t kick this rare occasion off in more difficult circumstances as they host current Copa Libertadores champions River Plate.

      But the continental champions are struggling a bit. They only managed to secure qualification because of their win in the final, with their Argentina Primera Division finishing position a lowly 9th. They haven’t started this season fantastically either, with only one of their opening four league fixtures seeing River Plate take all three points.

      Reasons for Betting Tips

      Trujillanos may be in better form than their visitors coming into this match, but there is an undoubted quality gap between these two sides. The Argentina Primera Division hosts a much higher quality of player than the Venezuelan top flight, and River Plate have shown the quality of their home country continentally.

      They have only lost one of their last 13 Copa Libertadores matches, and I’m fully expecting them to get a win against the group minnows. But the visitors have conceded eight goals in their last three matches, so Trujillanos have every chance of getting on the scoresheet.
