River Plate host Tachira on Thursday.

River Plate host Tachira at the Estadio Mas Monumental on Thursday (May 30) in the final round of their Copa Libertadores campaign. The hosts have performed brilliantly in the continental showpiece and are just a point away from guaranteeing top spot in Group H.

River beat Libertad 2-0 in their last game, with Colombia international Miguel Borja scoring a goal in either half to hand Los Millonarios a deserved three points at home.

Tachira, meanwhile, have struggled in the Libertadores and must win to salvage any hopes of retaining a spot in the continent. They lost 1-0 to Nacional last time out, managing just one shot on target all game.
