The River Plate vs Independiente del Valle Copa Libertadores match will be held this Wednesday, May 4, 2016 (3:15 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Monumental in Buenos Aires. This second-leg match will decide which of the two teams reach the quarterfinals to face the winner between Deportivo Tachira and Pumas UNAM.
River Plate will enter this Wednesday’s night clash under great pressure as their semester could come to an end if they do not eliminate their Ecuador rivals. The team coached by Marcelo Gallardo entered this round-of-16 series as favorite to reach the quarterfinals, yet their 0-2 loss in the first-leg has complicated this. The Argentina giants wil need to win by three goals in order to reach the next stage, something they have a great possibility of accomplishing in their quest to defend their 2015 Libertadores title.
Independiente del Valle performed wonderfully last week when they scored two good goals to defeat the Argentine side. The team coached by Pablo Repetto is within reach of reaching the quarterfinals as they visit a desperate River Plate who will most likely style highly offensive tactics. Nonetheless, this game is a must-watch match in this round of the Libertadores as River will attempt to break their rival’s strong defensive system.
