River Plate vs Gimnasia Tips and Prediction
River Plate and Velez Sarsfield on Monday battled to a tie, extending River Plate’s league winless streak to three games.
Abiel Osorio scored a dramatic equalizer in the 93rd minute to help Velez snatch a point at home in a game in which head coach Marcelo Gallardo watched from the stands after receiving a red card in the previous match. River Plate was leading heading into second-half stoppage time.
Gimnasia is the opponent for Thursday’s game, and while River Plate has had trouble scoring recently at El Monumental, failing to score in three of their last four home games, they have had no trouble against Gimnasia, scoring in each of their last 12 meetings with them, including seven strikes in their last two home games. Gimnasia, like River Plate, enters Thursday’s match with just a point to their name after last weekend’s scoreless stalemate at home against Colon.
Their seven-game home winning streak came to an end as a result, and they also lost the opportunity to move up the standings; they are currently in fifth position, one point behind the four teams in front of them. The goal of Gimnasia’s head coach, Nestor Gorosito, who played for River Plate for six years in the mid-1980s, is to help the team improve on last year’s 11th-place finish in the top division. Gimnasia has had a promising start to 2022, winning four and drawing three of their first eight games.
The Wolf, on the other hand, has had trouble playing River Plate over the years as they have only triumphed once in their last 12 matches, a home victory in December 2017.
Gimnasia lately lost its momentum, earning only one point from their last two games, giving River Plate confidence going into Thursday’s match. Although the hosts have had trouble maintaining consistency thus far this season, we see them winning this match by a slim margin.
