Argentinos Juniors X River Plate

Argentinos Juniors will lock horns with fellow Argentinian side River Plate in the second leg of their Copa Libertadores last-16 tie on Thursday.

The first leg ended in a 1-1 draw. Matias Suarez gave River Plate an early lead, which was canceled out by a 39th-minute strike by Gabriel Hauche.

River Plate lost their last competitive fixture against Colon in the Argentine Primera Division. Rodrigo Aliendro and Yeiler Goez's first-half goals helped Colon to an easy win, and Matias Suarez's goal in 90th-minute proved to be a mere consolation.

Meanwhile, Argentinos Juniors played out a 0-0 draw with Independiente in their last game. The visitors were lucky to escape with a draw, as the Independiente forwards tested goalkeeper Lucas Chavez throughout the 90 minutes.
