River Plate set to face off against Deportivo Táchira in Copa Libertadores debut

The highly anticipated debut of River Plate in the Copa Libertadores is set to take place as the Argentine team gears up to face off against Deportivo Táchira, the reigning champions of the Venezuelan football league. The clash is scheduled for Tuesday, April 2, and will mark the opening matchday of the Group Stage of the prestigious tournament.

Deportivo Táchira, coming off a convincing 2-0 victory over Metropolitanos in the Venezuelan league, will be looking to maintain their winning momentum as they prepare to host the formidable River Plate. With Maurice Cova and Nelson Hernández finding the back of the net in their recent triumph, the yellow-and-black team is poised to pose a significant challenge to their Argentine counterparts.

Meanwhile, River Plate is looking to bounce back from a disappointing 1-0 defeat against Huracán in their domestic campaign. The team currently sits in fourth place in Zone A, with 21 points, as they aim to secure a spot in the quarter-finals of the competition. The upcoming clash against Deportivo Táchira presents an opportunity for River Plate to make a statement and kick off their Libertadores campaign on a positive note.

Both teams have been drawn into Group H of the Copa Libertadores and will lock horns at the Pueblo Nuevo Sports Complex for what promises to be an enthralling encounter. River Plate’s journey to Venezuela has been notably impacted by the recent ban on overflight imposed by the government of Nicolás Maduro, compelling the team to travel via Colombia.
