Mexican side Tigres UANL could deliver a decisive blow to River Plate’s Copa Libertadores ambitions with a win in their Group 6 tie on Wednesday night.
Time: 6pm PDT / 9pm EDT / 2am BST
Date: Wednesday 8th April 2015
Where: Estadio Universitario, Monterrey, Mexico
Tigres have already qualified for the knockout stages with two games to spare, having amassed ten points from their four matches so far. River Plate on on the brink of elimination after taking just three points.
River Plate might find some respite in Tigres’ team selection. With qualification assured, and with a vital Liga MX game against Cruz Azul at the weekend, there is a strong possibility that boss Tuca Ferretti will opt to use his fringe players and reserves. However, given this is a game that fans have been looking forward to for weeks, he might also feel he has no choice but to field a strong eleven.
A win for River Plate would leave them joint second. They play Santa Fe at home in their final match.
