The group stages of the Copa Sudamericana return this week and will see River Plate host Cuiaba at the Estadio Parque Federico Saroldi on Wednesday.

River Plate have endured a disappointing return to the continental stage. After losing their first two group stage games, they beat their midweek opponents 2-1 in the reverse fixture to pick up their first win in the competition this season before falling to a 2-1 loss against Melgar in their last game.

The home side sit rock-bottom in the group standings with just three points from an obtainable 12. They will be looking to return to winning ways on Wednesday as they make a last-gasp push for the knockout stages.

Cuiaba have not fared much better than their hosts in the Copa Sudamericana this season. They beat Melgar 2-0 in their opener last month before going on a three-game losing streak in the competition, most recently suffering a 2-1 defeat to Racing Club.

The Brazilian outfit sit a place above their midweek opponents in the table, level on points but with a better goal difference. They will now be looking to widen the gap when they play this week.
