Copa Sudamericana: Atlético Nacional vs River Plate

In the first leg of the final of Copa Sudamericana this season will meet Atlético Nacional and River Plate.

Home team qualified in the final after they eliminated Sao Paulo on penalties few days ago, while River Plate was better side against their biggest rival Boca Juniors.

Atlético Nacional side is underdog in this match, but they want to make positive result at home. Their coach has announced that their main goal is to save their net, so I expect they will play very defensive.

Home side have very good defence. They didn’t concede a single goal in their last 6 home matches in all competitions in which they managed to win all.

The main problem for home team in this match could be the absences, especially in defence.

Mosquera (26/1 d), Nájera (27/2 d), Calle (23/2 d), Peralta (21/3 d), Arias (29/1 m), Duque (13/3 f) and Páez (24/6 f) are all out.

River Plate play very good this season. They are standing at the 2nd position in Argentinian Primera División.

After few matches without win, River Plate won the last two matches and will be fully motivated to continue with the good performance.

For this match only two players are out: Aguirre (0/0 m) and Álvarez (2/0 d).

The visitors are favorite to win this competition, but It won’t be an easy match for them. Away win covered with an Asian handicap could be a good betting option.
