River Plate v San Martin de San Juan Primera Division live stream - Copa Libertadores winners return to domestic action

River return to domestic action for the first time since ending a 19-year wait for their third Copa Libertadores crown less than a fortnight ago with a 3-0 aggregate win over Mexican club Tigres in the continental showpiece.

That result was all the more remarkable given that it came just four years after the Buenos Aires club were relegated for the first time in over a century and means that they now hold both of South America's top club competitions, having won the Copa Sudamericana in December.

"The history of this club is about fighting for these kind of competitions," said midfielder Leonardo Ponzio after the game. "Today is the greatest that you can achieve as a club and we did it."

Their third Libertadores Cup win follows triumphs in 1986 and 1996 and will see them travel to Fifa's Club World Cup this December.

They followed their 2015 success up with another 3-0 triumph over Gamba Osaka, this time in the Suruga Bank Championship last Tuesday, which is played between the winners of last year's Copa Sudamericana and the Japanese League Cup

On top of that, their domestic form this term has been such that they are also in contention to win the Argentine title. A win here and in their game in hand over Defensa y Justicia could see them move joint top with Boca Juniors and San Lorenzo.

They take on a San Martin side, here, who performed well against Lanus last time out after falling behind early on. They fought back well and thoroughly deserved their equaliser through Eric Aparicio.

A trip to River will be a different ball game, though, particularly with Marcelo Gallardo's men hungry for more success.

The hosts are set to be at full strength too, while Carlos Bueno (right shin), Matias Silva (cruciate ligaments) and Michael Covea (right knee) are all out for the visitors.
