River Plate receives Hurricane in a match corresponding to the fourth date of the Professional Soccer League.
The game is played at the Monumental stadium from 6:00 p.m., with the arbitration of Facundo Tello and broadcast by Fox Sports Premium.
In the professional history, Millonarios and Quemeros played 166 times, with a clear River Plate advantage of 83 wins against 33 from Globo and 50 draws.
How do they get there
River is going through a great time.
Marcelo Gallardo's team is the only Argentine team that competes in the Copa Libertadores, awaits the matches for the quarterfinals against Atlético Mineiro, from Brazil, which eliminated Boca and is winning at the local level with a high level of play, such as the that showed in his victory last date as a visitor to Lanús by 3-0.
River, who had started the domestic tournament with doubts and a local defeat against Colón (with the aggravation that he played the entire second half with one more player), improved from the match against Argentinos Juniors in the revenge for the eighth of the Libertadores (2-0) and ratified in the League with a resounding 4 to 0 to Union.
Núñez's team scored three consecutive victories with 11 goals in favor and undefeated fence, leaving far behind the draw with Argentinos for the Cup and the aforementioned defeat against Colón.
The team led by Gallardo improved individually from Cordovan Matías Suarez, absent this Sunday due to a muscle strain.
Nicolás De La Cruz and Bruno Zuculini also recovered their level.
The former Racing scored a goal for Lanús and it has great tactical value for Gallardo, since with the feisty midfielder it helps Enzo Pérez to preserve energy when recovering the ball.
To this is added the great moment of the scorer Braian Romero, the category of the Uruguayan De la Cruz and some glimpses of the Colombian Jorge Carrascal, who for the moment hints more than he finally specifies.
Anyway, before the "Globo" will not be the main actors of this winner River, because on Wednesday in La Plata the Superclásico is played against Boca for the round of 16 of the Argentine Cup, with all that this match means for the two most important teams in Argentine soccer.
Faced with such a challenge, Gallardo will place on the playing field a formation with few starters, but with the logic and recurring clarification that the Millionaires substitutes would be figures in almost the majority of the other Argentine teams.

Hurricane seeks to react once and for all and live up to its history and that is achieved with something that it has not generated for a long time, being the protagonist of a tournament.
Against River, which won the final of the 2014 Super Cup, Huracán, since the middle of the year led by Frank Kudelka, will propose a team with an interesting rear made up of Jonatahn Galván and Lucas Merolla, in the middle Santiago Hezze and Jonathan Candia stand out , plus the experience of Enrique Triverio and Nicolás Silva in attack.
