Although the main objective is to be able to get into the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores de América, and for this it will have to overcome Argentinos Juniors in the series next Wednesday in La Paternal (the first leg in Núñez ended 1-1), River will seek to start the Professional League 2021 optimally but will not have a simple rival.
