Our favourite Boca Juniors vs Corinthians betting predictions and picks

If you are looking for help to find the right bet for the Boca Juniors vs Corinthians duel, you’ve come to the right place:

Boca Juniors and Corinthians to Draw

The situation in Group E of Copa Libertadores is wide open with the first and the last teams in the group separated by just three points. At the moment, Corinthians has seven points, Boca Juniors six.

Corinthians beat Boca Juniors in their first duel, but now the Argentinian team will host the game. Boca Juniors enters this match in good form after securing a spot in Copa de la Liga Profesional final, but that also makes them pretty tired at the moment. On the other hand, Corinthians is at the top of Serie A standings, so they are doing pretty well too. So, a draw here sounds like the most reasonable outcome.

Boca Juniors and Corinthians to Draw at Half Time

Since we expect the game to end in a draw, we can also see Boca Juniors and Corinthians  being tied at half time. After all, most matches that end in draws are also tied at half times.

In addition to this, three of the last five h2h duels between Boca Juniors and Corinthians have been tied at half times, although most of those matches were played a decade and more ago.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The first duel between Boca Juniors and Corinthians in the group has ended with two goals and we can see this game going under 2.5 total goals as well.

After all, Boca Juniors has gone under 2.5 total goals in the last five games in all competitions, while the same thing happened in four of the last five Corinthians matches across the board.

Boca Juniors vs Corinthians preview: A very exciting matchup

Boca Juniors

After struggling a bit in their domestic league, Boca Juniors went on a great run to first secure a place in the playoffs and now they’ve reached the final of Copa de la Liga Profesional. Meanwhile, the team is in a very close race for the next stage in their group of Copa Libertadores, with all teams having a chance to get there.

Corinthians

So far, Corinthians can be very pleased with their season. The team is currently at the top of the standings in Serie A, while they are also doing well and sitting at the top of their group in Copa Libertadores. However, the difference between them and the last team in the standings is just three points, so Corinthians did not yet secure a place in the next stage.
