Deportivo Moron perform in Primera B Nacional which is the Argentina’s second football tier. The side comes up to the cup fight with seven-game unbeaten run during which it got two triumphs and five draws. As for the Primera B Nacional, Deportivo Moron picked up eight points with six goals for and seven goals against in seven clashes played sitting on the 16th position in the table. The team entered the Copa Argentina on the 1/32 final stage, having knocked out Patronato 2:0, San Lorenzo 1:0, Union de Sante Fe 1:0 and Olimpo Bahia Blanca 1:0 since then. The side has managed to earn four clean-sheets. Deportivo Moron’s undefeated streak at away grounds counts for seven clashes covering six draws with single win.
The rivals have never met before. It is not worth comparing level of the sides as River Plate are the grand of Argentina’s football while Deportivo Moron are a mid-table team of Argentina’s second division. The hosts are considered to be the favourites of the forthcoming fight, however, I wouldn’t expect for their lopsided victory.
Prediction for the match: Deportivo Moron to win with +2.0 Asian handicap.
