River Plate have enjoyed a strong run on the continental stage this season, going undefeated in their five games so far. They beat Colo Colo 4-0 in their last game with a highly clinical performance featuring four different goalscorers.
The Argentine giants have picked up 13 points from five games and sit top of the group. They have already secured knockout football and will now be looking to end their group stage run with purpose.
Alianza Lima, on the other hand, have performed poorly in the Copa Libertadores this season. They were beaten 2-0 by Fortaleza in their last game, failing to create any noteworthy chances to alter the result.
The visitors sit rock-bottom in group F with just one point picked up so far. Their continental ambitions are dead in the water and they will play the midweek game as a formality.
Tuesday's game will mark the fourth meeting between River Plate and Alianza Lima. The hosts have won two of their previous matchups, while the visitors have won the other.
The two sides last faced off in the reverse fixture earlier last month, which Los Millonarios won 2-1.

The hosts are set to be without the services of Felipe Pena Biafore, Robert Rojas, Fabrizio Angileri and Matias Suarez this week as they are all injured. Juan Quintero continues his recovery from a hamstring injury and is a doubt for the game.

Doubtful: Pablo Miguez
River Plate Predicted XI (4-3-3): Franco Armani; Milton Casco, David Martinez, Paulo Diaz, Marcelo Herrera; Bruno Zucilini, Enzo Fernandez, Nicolas De La Cruz; Santiago Simon, Esequiel Barco, Julian Alvarez
Alianza Lima Predicted XI (4-3-3): Angelo Campos; Yordi Vílchez, Christian Ramos, Jefferson Portales, Fabio Rojas; Pablo Lavandeira, Josepmir Ballón, Jairo Concha; Edgar Benítez, Wilmer Aguirre, Hernán Barcos
River Plate are unbeaten on the continental stage this season and have lost just one of their last seven games across all competitions. They have lost just one of their last six home games and will look to maximize their advantage come Tuesday.
Alianza Lima have performed well domestically, going unbeaten in their last seven league games. However, their poor Copa Libertadores form could see them lose this encounter against their opponents from Argentina.
Prediction: River Plate 2-1 Alianza Lima
