River Plate vs Boca Juniors - How to watch the Superclásico Argentino

August 31, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The most heated rivalry in South America will add another chapter to its history. Follow this intense clash with our detailed guide wherever you are.

What is River Plate and Boca Juniors' form ahead of this match?

River Plate enters this clash having won four out of their last six, with their last two games concluding in a loss and a draw. That loss saw them falling behind in the Argentine top-flight, while that draw was not enough to see them eliminated from the 2019 Copa Libertadores.

Boca Juniors makes it to the Monumental on a five-game streak without a loss, which includes four wins and one draw in their latest Copa Libertadores match. Los Xeneizes are yet to lose a single Superliga game, with three wins and one draw to their name so far in the competition.

What is River Plate and Boca's position in the Superliga Argentina?

River Plate made it to Matchday 5 in the Superliga in seventh place, with two wins, one draw and one loss to their name. River has the best attack in the Argentine top-flight, being the only team to have scored ten goals so far in the competition.

Boca Juniors makes it to this match as one of three teams that have won ten points, but their goal differential gives them the top spot of the Superliga. Boca has only scored five goals in their four games, but they are yet to concede a single goal, which makes up for their dubious performance in front of goal.

River Plate vs Boca Juniors - Who's in and who's out?

River Plate's boss will have to choose wisely when preparing his lineup, as up to five players could be out for this game. Juan Quintero is out due to injury, while Javier Pinola was sent off last week. Leo Ponzio, Matías Suárez and Ignacio Fernández will be assessed before the game, but fans shouldn't be surprised if these men are dropped from the squad.

Boca's coach Gustavo Alfaro will also have three confirmed absences due to injury and one more for disciplinary reasons. Eduardo Salvio, Ramón Ábila and Mauro Zárate have been ruled out due to injury, while Agustín Almendra is out after picking up a red card.
