River Plate vs Racing – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Looking at the odds and the teams, I honestly don’t’ see that big of a difference as the odds suggest right now.
The rosters are balanced, with good players, and River doesn’t have all this favouritism.
I believe that Racing will have a word to say and the +1 Asian Handicap has very interesting odds on a perspective of a rough and balanced match.
