Newell's Old Boys will welcome River Plate to Estadio Marcelo Alberto Bielsa for a matchday 11 fixture in Argentina Primera División. The last meeting on 1st December 2019 ended in a River Plate 3-2 win. Both sides have met five times in the most recent seasons. Newell's Old Boys has won 3 matches, and River Plate triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 3.60 goals, while both teams score 60% of the time.

Newell's Old Boys's latest fixture against Colón ended in an away 1-1 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. Newell's Old Boys set the tone early and scored in the 43rd minute.

River Plate's recent game against Independiente ended in a home 1-1 draw. One point was the maximum they could have won with that display. River Plate deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 66th minute.

Since the start of the season, Newell's Old Boys is more dominant at home. They have four wins out of 12 games on home soil. Although Newell's Old Boys 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 25% home clean sheets.

River Plate has picked up 14 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. La Banda Roja wins 1.69 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 31% of their visits.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Newell's Old Boys has won just 33% of home games. On average they score 1.42 goals and concede 1.42 per game. River Plate won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.

The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Newell's Old Boys wins on average 1.33 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against River Plate. My prediction is River Plate to win.
