River Plate and Godoy Cruz will clash in the round 6 of the Argentine Copa de la Liga Profesional 2021.

Here, check out the match preview, predictions, odds, and how to watch the game in the US.
Marcelo Gallardo's squad heads to this duel after tying with Boca Juniors in the famous Superclásico played at La Bombonera. Prior to that game, they've suffered a dramatic defeat at home against Argentinos Juniors. It's time to bounce back for River.
Godoy Cruz have struggled to find consistency lately, although only five matches have been played. The Tomba lost in the last round at the ground of the same team that defeated the Millonario two weeks ago. Hosting Gallardo's men always seems like a tough job, and even more if they are desperate to win.

Godoy Cruz vs River Plate: Storylines and Head-to-Head
River Plate were doing fine in the local tournament until the last two rounds, from which they grabbed only one point. Last weekend, they faced their lifelong rivals Boca Juniors in the Superclásico and tied despite having opportunities to claim the triumph. They still couldn't heal from the loss against Argentinos at home, and they'll have to try to recover on the road once again.
Godoy Cruz has been very inconsistent so far, as they couldn't record consecutive wins. The two times they won in this competition, they lost the following game. Now Daniel Oldrá's team will face off against the arguably best team in Argentina.
These two have played against each other 19 times, and the giants River Plate have a three-game advantage, as they won nine times, while Godoy Cruz did it in six games, and they tied in four matches.
