Due to the fact that he was champion of the Copa Sudamericana last season, Atlético-PR has the right to play the Recopa Sudamericana. This will be a decision of two games and the first will be played next to their fans, where they will have to conquer an advantage on the scoreboard. The Atlético-PR will have to dictate the rhythm of the game, as well as having possession of the ball in their favor, looking for their attacking plays. The coach must take a very competitive team to the field and they will fight for a positive result.
River Plate is the current champion of the Copa Libertadores de América and wants to conquer the South American Recopa, but for that to happen it will be necessary that it can pass over its adversary. Acting away from home in this first leg, River Plate will have to have a lot of attention in their defensive sector, in order to get at least a draw, which will be something very positive. The coach should not have important absences for this game, that is, he will go to the field with what he has in his squad.
