Pereira v Boca Juniors Free Betting Tips and Predictions

The Copa Libertadores match Pereira v Boca Juniors sees two sides toughing it out in order to qualify for the knockout stage. Below we have tried to give you our best free betting tips.

Draw

Our first Pereira v Boca Juniors prediction is backing both teams to come out with a point each. Boca scored two very late goals in the reverse leg to claim all three points, yet Pereira are unbeaten at home in the competition with a win and draw to their name.

It’s worth noting that Pereira are also on a seven-match unbeaten run at home at the time of writing, and have really started to gel after a poor start to the campaign. They went toe to toe with Colo Colo in their Libertadores curtain raiser, and back on home soil, will be looking to seek revenge after their cruel defeat to Boca in the reverse fixture.

Boca have drastically improved in recent weeks since the appointment of their new manager, and it looks to be a case of these two sides cancelling each other out.

BTTS – Yes

Our second Pereira v Boca Juniors prediction backs both teams to find the back of the net. Despite recommending a draw, both of these sides have continued to find the back of the net in recent weeks. Pereira have found the back of the net, as well as conceded, in all three Libertadores matches to date.

Boca have only conceded once in their three matches, but that was at home to Pereira and with the Colombian outfit sitting three points behind Boca in second place, they’ll know how big of an opportunity this is when it comes to qualifying to the knockout stage.

Jimer Fory scored at La Bombonera before scoring another against Monagas last time out. As well as their quick counter-attacking ability, Pereria are proving to be deadly from set pieces, and chances will definitely fall Pereira’s way over the 90 minutes.

Correct Score: 1-1

Our final Pereira v Boca Juniors prediction offers plenty of value with the correct score market. Both sides are capable of scoring against each other, as we saw in the first leg, but there’s a home advantage for Pereira to enjoy which is why they can claim a valuable point against Boca.

Boca Juniors will know that a victory will all but secure their place in the next stage of the Libertadores, but they’ll also know a defeat pulls them firmly back into the equation with both Pereira and Colo Colo for a top-two spot.

With that in mind, backing the 1-1 draw at a big price is worth chancing with so much on the line for both clubs.

Pereira v Boca Juniors Lineups and Other News

Pereira

Pereira head into this match full of confidence, and although they don’t have a standout goalscorer, they will be hoping forward Arley Rodriguez can lead the line well for them. Having scored four domestic goals this season, he did miss a penalty in their recent 2-1 win at home to Petrolera – will we see him step up again if Pereira win a penalty?

Carlos Ramirez is Pereira’s number-one penalty taker but having scored from the spot against Monagas, he was substituted in the first half with an injury and has yet to return to the matchday squad.

Boca Juniors

Boca Juniors have turned a corner in the last few weeks, which all stemmed from their 2-1 victory against Pereira. Having previously lost three domestic matches in a row, Boca have since gone on to win five of their next seven matches – drawing 2-2 with Rosario before losing 1-0 to a 93rd minute penalty against fierce rivals River Plate.

Striker Dario Benedetto has been out injured for several weeks but recently made his comeback against Belgrano, scoring and playing 76 minutes, and he’ll no doubt be ready to play a key role in Colombia.
