Matchday 22 could seal the deal for River Plate in their quest for the Argentine League title. Marcelo Gallardo's men welcome Racing Club to Estadio Monumental today, November 25, aiming to be crowned 2021 Liga Profesional champions. It will be a new edition of this Argentine league derby between two of the biggest clubs in the country. Here, take a look at the preview, information, storylines, predictions, and odds. To watch and live stream the game in the US, tune in to Paramount+ and fuboTV (free trial).

El Millonario are just one step away from lifting the domestic trophy after a long wait. River have been extremely successful in the continental stage over the last few years but they've struggled to claim the local championship under Gallardo. That could be over soon.

On the other hand, La Academia can't wait for the tournament to be over but for different reasons. Following Juan Antonio Pizzi's sacking early in the campaign, interim coach Claudio Ubeda failed to deliver results, and newly appointed manager Fernando Gago got off to an awful start. Will Racing pull off a shock and spoil River's party?

River Plate vs Racing Club: Storylines and Head-to-Head

River Plate have been flying in the Argentine League and the trophy is waiting for them. Their 1-0 win over Platense last time out put them one step closer to the title. If they don't lose this one, they'll secure the championship.

Racing Club face an extremely tough challenge. Things haven't improved for them since former Boca Juniors and Real Madrid player Fernando Gago took over, as they lost three out of four games under Pintita (W1). Last week, they lost to Colon at home.

These familiar foes meet for the 176th time. River Plate have been clearly dominant in the all-time series, having recorded 91 triumphs, while Racing picked up 41 victories, and they drew on 43 occasions.
