Football predictions – River Plate vs Club Independiente Santa Fe – Club Friendlies

Club Independiente Santa Fe have taken just one point from their last three Club Friendlies. matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Club Independiente Santa Fe are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions River Plate should prove no easy feat either – Club Independiente Santa Fe haven’t won against any Club Friendlies. leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

River Plate have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. River Plate dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Club Friendlies.’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

River Plate are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about River Plate and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in River Plate’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Club Independiente Santa Fe are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Club Independiente Santa Fe took a point away from River Plate (1-1 draw).

Notably, River Plate’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. River Plate have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Club Friendlies. away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Club Independiente Santa Fe, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Club Independiente Santa Fe getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Club Independiente Santa Fe are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), River Plate hold the best away record in the Club Friendlies. (W8 D2 L1). Club Independiente Santa Fe’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with River Plate’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the River Platens could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 River Plate win at 15/2 with bet365.
