Boca Juniors to Win with Handicap (-1)

The simple fact of the matter is that Boca Juniors is one of the best teams in South America, so any game they play, especially at home, makes them the favourites. And while Santos eliminated Boca Juniors in the semi-finals of Copa Libertadores 2020 only a few months ago, they’ve struggled in the Brazilian league last season and they are out of competitive form at the moment since the new season of the Brazilian league hasn’t started yet. So, our prediction is for Boca Juniors to win this game convincingly.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The Brazilian teams are not known for playing games with a lot of goals, which is one of the reasons for this prediction. In addition to this, Boca Juniors has gone under 2.5 total goals in seven of their twelve games across all competitions this season, so they know how to focus on defending. Also, in the previous two games between these teams we have seen a total of three goals, so we expect that trend to continue.

Boca Juniors to Win to Nil

Since we expect Boca Juniors to win and we don’t expect to see many goals, betting on Boca to win to nil seems like a logical move. The odds on this bet are good and Boca Juniors has done this in their last two games, so we don’t see why they can’t do it once again. That being said, Boca has kept a clean sheet in just three of their twelve games this season, but we still like this prediction.

Boca Juniors vs Santos preview: Can Santos stage a surprise

Even though these two teams competed in the semi-finals of the Copa Libertadores only a few months ago, the situation is quite different at this moment. Let’s take a more detailed look at Boca Juniors and Santos right now:

Boca Juniors

The football season in Argentina has already on its way and Boca Juniors is currently in 3rd place after 11 games. The team is playing really inconsistently – they’ve beaten Velez Sarsfield 7-1 more than a month ago, only to fall behind them six points in the meantime. That being said, Boca has won four of their last five games across all competitions, so they seem to be getting back in their best form.

Santos

Last season has been quite disappointing for the Brazilian team since they’ve lost the Copa Libertadores finals against Palmeiras and they’ve finished in the 8th place in the Brazilian league. The new season in the Brazilian league will start soon, which means that Santos is still not in a competitive form. Their only game so far has been in the first round of the Copa Libertadores against Barcelona SC, which they’ve lost 2-0.
