Danubio will welcome River Plate to for a matchday 4 fixture in Uruguay Primera División. The last meeting on 23rd April 2022 ended in a 0-0 draw. Both sides have met nineteen times in the most recent seasons. Danubio has won 7 matches, and River Plate triumphed in 7. Recent outings average 2.37 goals, while both teams score 53% of the time.
Danubio’s last game in the Uruguay Primera División against Nacional at home ended in a 0-1 loss. The final result is not a surprise. La Franja played less with the ball and therefore had less clear cut chances.
River Plate’s recent game against Boston River ended in a home 0-1 loss. Darseneros’s strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances.
So far, Danubio plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.78 points per away game on average compared to 1.00 points at home. Although Danubio is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 33% home clean sheets.
River Plate has picked up 5 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. River Plate wins 0.71 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. River Plate kept a clean sheet in just 29% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Danubio or River Plate to win.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 1.94 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 40% of Danubio’s home and River Plate’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
