Atletico Junior are second in the standings with 6 points, while Boca are third with 5 points in their bag. Palmeiras are leading the group with 10 points, who can qualify for the knockouts with a win against bottom placed Allianz Lima on matchday 5.

A win is more important for Atletico here since their final group game is away at Palmeiras. However, Boca must avoid a defeat here before the home fixture against Allianz Lima on matchday 6.

Atletico’s 6 points so far came from the back-to-back wins against Lima. They lost 1-0 at Boca and 3-0 at home to Palmeiras.

Boca managed only 1 win so far and that too against their Wednesday’s hosts. They were surprisingly held to a goal-less draw at Lima, before the 1-1 stalemate and 0-2 home defeat to Palmeiras.

Atletico Junior vs Boca Juniors: Head-to-head

Wednesday mark the fourth meeting between the two sides and Boca’s second visit to Barranquilla to take on Junior.

Boca are unbeaten this far with 2 home wins and a 3-3 draw at the Barranquilla.

Atletico Junior vs Boca Juniors: Prediction

Atletico are a decent enough side that play their best football at home. But, they tend to flop against heavy weights in the zone, still they got the goods to frustrate any opponent here.

Boca haven’t started the continental campaign well, but they are leading the title race in Argentina. They did well in both home and away matches there, so we must expect them to get back to winning ways at Barranquilla on Wednesday night.

Atletico Junior vs Boca Juniors: Bet Tips

Boca to win @ 3.20 odd.

Brave punters must back Boca -1.5 Asian Handicap for 7.00 odd.
