River Plate will welcome Cerro Porteño to Estadio River Plate for a matchday 16 fixture in Paraguay Division Profesional. The last meeting on 9th March 2021 ended in a Cerro Porteño 3-0 win. Both sides have met twelve times in the most recent seasons. River Plate has won 0 matches, and Cerro Porteño triumphed in 12. Recent outings average 3.50 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.
River Plate's latest fixture against Guaireña ended in an away 0-0 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair.
Cerro Porteño's recent game against Nacional Asunción ended in a home 2-2 draw. One point was the maximum they could have won with that display. Cerro Porteño put the pressure early on and scored in the 3rd and 38th minute.
So far, River Plate plays better on the road than at home. They win 0.78 points per away game on average compared to 0.56 points at home. Although River Plate 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 22% home clean sheets.
Cerro Porteño has picked up 8 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Cerro Porteño wins 1.22 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Cerro Porteño kept a clean sheet in just 22% of their visits.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. River Plate has won just 11% of home games. On average they score 0.56 goals and concede 1.67 per game. Cerro Porteño is one of the best teams in the league. On paper, they have a great squad and I expect them to make life difficult for their opponent.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. River Plate wins on average 0.56 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Cerro Porteño. My prediction is Cerro Porteño to win.
Both teams struggle in defence and concede on regular occasions. River Plate failed to keep a clean sheet in 22% of home games, while Cerro Porteño conceded in 22% of away games. On average, both teams score in 36% of River Plate's home and Cerro Porteño's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
