Boca Juniors to Win

In the last three matchdays, the visitors had 2 wins and a draw while their next opponents closed the group stage with 3 wins. In the last 4 h2h, the home team won 3 times and drew once, all three victories were by one goal difference.

This indicates that all the h2h between these two teams are very close. Therefore, we think that Boca will be able to advance to the weekly round with a minimum difference, where the locality will be important.

Under 2.5 Goals

In the last h2h, the most repeated result was 1-0, only 1 of the last 4 times both the total number of goals was higher than 2. That’s why we assume a very even game where there will be only one or two goals in this one.


The Xeneize have not conceded a goal in their last three games and have kept seven clean sheets this season. Although Becabecce’s team is one of the highest scorers, we think that this time they will not be able to put the ball in the net.

Boca Juniors vs Defensa y Justicia Preview: Will the guests do justice at La Bombonera?

Boca Juniors

The team coached by Sebastián Battaglia had an excellent group stage, being only one point behind first place. In their last match, the Xeneize defeated Tigre 2-0, who was on the verge of missing out on qualification.

Boca managed to keep control of the ball for more time than their rival and managed to score two goals, one in the first half through Dario Benedetto and the other in the second through Luis Vasquez. Although Tigre had a large number of shots, few of them carried danger to the Xeneize goal.

Defensa y Justicia

Defensa y Justicia’s place in the quarterfinals was at risk on the last day of the group stage, as up to three teams had the possibility of snatching their place. However, a win was enough to preserve their place and they achieved it in front of their fans by defeating Patronato 1-0.

In this match, Sebastián Becabecce had his best lineup to face Patronato with no chance of advancing to the next round, but they still proved to be a tough opponent. The locals would need a penalty to open the scoreboard.
