Club Atlético River Plate is a Uruguayan football club based in Montevideo. The club currently plays in the Primera División, the top level of the Uruguayan football league system. This is not the same River Plate F.C. that won the Uruguayan league in the early 20th century.

History

River Plate de Montevideo is the result of the merger of former clubs Olimpia and Capurro. After its foundation on 11 May 1932, one of the first objectives reached was the settlement of a new football pitch. The managers decided to establish the "Olimpia Park" (today called Estadio Saroldi) as its home stadium. The name of the stadium was settled in honour of River's first goalkeeper, Federico Omar Saroldi, who died after playing a match against Central Español from an injury suffered during the game.

During the early years (from 1932 until 1942) some of the greatest players in Uruguay's history played in River Plate, such as Severino Varela and Héctor Sena Puricelli. Before Olimpia and Capurro were merged, Isabelino Gradín, who can be considered the first Uruguayan football star, played for the Olimpia side.

Rise in the Primera División

River Plate's highest league position was reached in 1992. Osvaldo Canobbio, Juan Ramón Carrasco, Diego López and Edgardo Adinolfi were involved in the squad with Víctor Púa as coach. Nacional won the title based on the skills of the notable forward Julio Dely Valdés. In 1997 River Plate reached third overall position, just three points from Peñarol and Defensor Sporting who qualified for the finals. By those times, River Plate was coached by Fernando Morena. Some of the best River Plate's players were raised in that generation, such as Hernán Rodrigo López, Pablo Gaglianone and Gustavo Díaz.

Another great performance was reached in 2007/2008 season, which resulted in River achieving the second position in the annual qualifying; by those years River was coached by Juan Ramón Carrasco. Some of the best players of the tournament were part of that roster: Robert Flores was considered the best player of the season, other key figures such as Pablo Tiscornia, Henry Giménez, Mauricio Prieto, Bruno Montelongo and goalkeeper Álvaro García were also part of the first roster. Some of the most important victories during the tournament were against Peñarol (6–3), Defensor Sporting (5–1) and Danubio (5–1). The highest score registered was against Rampla Juniors (7–0).

2009 Copa Sudamericana

River Plate played semifinals in 2009 Copa Sudamericana, which was the best result achieved in an international competition. Coached by Juan Ramón Carrasco, River Plate eliminated Vitória in the round of 16, San Lorenzo in quarterfinals and lost against LDU Quito, reaching the top four. Only Danubio and Defensor Sporting, among the so-called "minor" Uruguayan clubs, have reached the semifinals of an international CONMEBOL competition.

Last years

River Plate Montevideo playing against Palmeiras for Copa Libertadores 2016

River Plate was coached by Guillermo Almada between April 2011 and June 2015. During those years River Plate positioned among the top six almost every season, qualifying for CONMEBOL official tournaments. Some key important players in those years were: Michael Santos, Cristian González, Damián Frascarelli, Leandro Rodríguez, Cristian Techera, Gabriel Marques, Gabriel Leyes, Gonzalo Porras, Felipe Avenatti, Lucas Olaza, Sebastián Taborda among others. The highest point of this process was reached after qualifying for the 2016 Copa Libertadores, the first time in club's history. They were drawn in group B along with Rosario Central, Palmeiras, and fellow Uruguayans Club Nacional. They drew 3 games, earning 3 points, and ended in last place of the group.

After Guillermo Almada joined Barcelona of Ecuador, since June 2015 until September 2016, Juan Ramón Carrasco was the coach of the first roster with disastrous results (a very different situation from his first campaign). After Pablo Tiscornia and Jorge Giordano, Jorge Fossati took over as manager, in June 2019 until April 2021. During Fossati's tenure, River Plate made the third stage of the 2020 Copa Sudamericana, where they eliminated Colombian powerhouse and two-time Libertadores champion Atlético Nacional in the second stage, 4–2 on aggregate. In the round of 16 they were only eliminated through away goals against Universidad Católica. Their league form was indifferent: in the Apertura they finished twelfth and in the Clausura they finished eighth, for an aggregate table position of eighth in the table.

In April 2021, Gustavo Díaz took over as head coach. This season was almost the same as the previous one, with the club finishing eighth in the aggregate table again, although securing a Sudamericana spot unlike what occurred in the 2020 season.

The club had a poor showing in the 2022 Copa Sudamericana, finishing last in their group with two wins and four losses, which cost Gustavo Diaz his position as head coach.
