Fluminense v River Plate - Copa CONMEBOL Libertadores 2023
Fluminense meet River Plate in the Copa Libertadores on Wednesday.

River Plate entertain Fluminense at the Estadio Mas Monumental in a must-win group game of the Copa Libertadores on Wednesday (June 7).

The hosts are in last place in Group D, with four points. In their previous outing, River drew 1-1 with Sporting Cristal, with Rodrigo Aliendro scoring the equaliser in the 84th minute. Salomon Rondon, who was on the bench, was shown a red card in injury time and will be suspended for this game.

Los Millonarios have an impressive home record this season, winning all but one of their nine games. They have also scored at least twice in six games. Their only win in the Libertadores this season also came at home.

Fluminense, meanwhile, have lost five of their last six away game. Nonetheless, they have an unbeaten run against River and have the best-attacking record in the competition (9 goals).
