Forwards

Janson, Pratto, Lobato, Seoane, Osorio, Prestianni

One win in their last four is not quite the run the hosts would have fancied, but if anything can get them up for a fight, it will be an Argentine derby.

Velez know that with a trip away to come, they could really do with a favourable result in this first leg.

Predicted Velez starting XI: Hoyos; Guidara, De los Santos, Gomez, Ortega; Garayalde, Perrone, Sonora; Orellano, Pratto, Janson

PositionRiver roster
Goalkeepers Armani, Petroli, Centurion
Defenders Rojas, Maidana, Martinez, González Pirez, Herrera, Diaz, Casco, Pinola, Mammana, Gomez
Midfielders Zuculini, Palavecino, Quintero, De La Cruz, Fernandez, Barco, Perez, Paradela, Aliendro, Simon, Pochettino
Forwards Suarez, Alvarez, Beltran, Londono, Romero

With seven goals netted in their past two games, River are hot to touch right now - and they'll hope they can continue that rich vein of form with another blowout here.

Velez will prove a trickier test though, and they will need to keep their wits about them to take an advantage on the road.

Predicted River starting XI: Armani; Mammana, Diaz, Martinez, Gomez; Perez, Fernandez, Paradela; Simon, Alvarez, Barco
