Boca Juniors to win

The Strongest might have made a solid start to their campaign on a domestic front but hosting Boca Juniors is going to be somewhat of a sterner test for the Bolivians. Why? Well, Boca are one of the most decorated sides in the history of the Copa Libertadores whilst The Strongest have never gone beyond the second round. The Argentines aren’t in bad form themselves either with just one loss in their last five matches. Their last match was a 3-1 victory over Atletico Tucuman; that’s the side that knocked The Strongest out in the qualification rounds last year.

Boca to win with plenty of goals in the game

Our opening tip backs Boca Juniors to win so we won’t talk about why we think that again. Instead, we’ll focus on why we think the match will see plenty of goals. When it comes to games with goals both these sides have been delivering the goods of late. For The Strongest, their season is only four games old but they’ve certainly started the campaign in entertaining fashion; their matches have seen a staggering average of 5.25 goals per match. Boca Juniors can’t quite compete with those numbers but across their last five matches but three of them have seen in excess of 2.5 goals. Their game average? 2.6 so both teams have form to see this one through.

Both teams to find the net

In our last prediction we touched on the sheer volume of goals both sides respective fixtures have produced in recent times. Now we turn our attention to the fact that we expect their head to head meeting to be no different. The reasoning is clear. The Strongest might have scored 14 goals in their opening matches of the season but they’ve shipped seven too. Just one of their games has seen a ‘nil’ in the score line. Boca Juniors meanwhile have scored in nine of their last 10 matches keeping just the solitary clean sheet.

The Strongest vs Boca Juniors Preview: Boca Juniors to kick off with a win

The Strongest

The Strongest will be pretty happy with the start they’ve made to their league campaign having won three and drawn one of their opening four games whilst the goal filled games certainly doesn’t do any harm either – at least when you’re on the right side at the full time whistle. The Copa Libertadores isn’t a tournament they’ve had great success in to date but with their squad sharing the burden of attacking play their opponents will have lots to think about.

Boca Juniors

Coming into this Copa Libertadores campaign there is one big thing hanging over Boca Juniors; they one triumph away from equalling the all time record currently held by Independiente with seven successes. Of course, that’s easier said than done and they’ll know that given they last held the trophy aloft in 2007. They are more than capable of beating The Strongest albeit Estadio Hernando Siles is far from the easiest ground to play at. Throw in the fact that Boca are likely to be missing Edwin Cardona due to injury and we should be set for a great contest.
