River Plate saw off the challenge of Gimnasia La Plata in a narrow 1-0 victory at the Estadio Antonio Vespucio Liberti on Friday morning.

Lucas Beltran opened the scoring two minutes shy of half time to hand Marcelo Gallardo‘s men a well-deserved three points in Buenos Aires.

Consequently, Los Millonarios have moved up to 12th place in the Argentine Primera Division standings but are still seven points adrift of Argentinos Juniors at the top of the pile.

Next up is the challenge of an opposing side yet to win any of the most recent seven meetings between the teams, losing six and drawing one.

Having scored the second-most goals away from home in the entire division, Sunday’s visitors will now be looking to continue their goal-scoring exploits on the road en route to another positive result.

Aldosivi claimed their first away point of the season courtesy of a 1-1 stalemate against Colon at the Estadio Brigadier General Estanislao Lopez on Tuesday.

After going behind to Ramon Abila‘s opener, Leandro Somoza‘s men hit back through Leandro Maciel within 10 minutes of the second period to force a share of the spoils.

With just five points on the board from a possible 27 so far, El Verde remain rooted to the bottom of the standings and are in need of a pick-me-up.

Currently with the bluntest attack on home turf this term, Sunday’s hosts will need to turn on the style at the top end of the pitch to stand a chance of coming up on top here.

Team News

Thirty-five-year-old Martin Cauteruccio remains ruled out for the home side and is on course to sit out a ninth game on the bounce.

Meanwhile, Braian Martinez is a doubt for Sunday’s game having had to come off with a first-half injury against Colon Santa Fe last time out.

Lucas Beltran has found the back of the net in back to back games for River Plate, making the forward one to keep an eye on this weekend.

Enzo Perez and Robert Rojas are both sidelined for the visitors due to muscle injuries, while Matias Suarez misses out through a muscle problem.

Chile international Paulo Diaz could make his comeback from injury here after sitting out the last two matches due to a minor hamstring injury.

Aldosivi possible starting lineup:
Devecchi; Roman, Valentini, Boolsen, Escobar; Meli, Maciel, Kociubinski; Rios, Silva, Martinez

River Plate possible starting lineup:
Armani; Casco, Mammana, Martinez, Gomez; Aliendro, Zuculini, Palavecino; Simon, Beltran, De la Cruz
