Barcelona SC and Boca Juniors, the top two teams in Group C will lock horns with each other for three points in Copa Libertadores this season. Since both teams have conceded no goals in the tournament after two rounds, expect a tight encounter at Guayaquil on Wednesday.
The host is in second place in the Ecuador Liga Pro this season. They will come into the game on the back of a five-game unbeaten run in the league with a draw in it. Their previous encounter gave a 2-1 home win against Delfin in the Liga Pro fixture.
The away team is at the second spot on the Argentinian Superliga league table this term. The visitor is on a five-game winning streak across all major competitions in their schedule. They will visit on the back of a 1-0 win at home against the likes of Lanus in the previous encounter.

Barcelona SC vs Boca Juniors Prediction
Barcelona SC has never won against the visitors in their h2h meetings since 2003. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the middle and has won both their fixtures in Group C until now. The home team has scored six goals in their two games, following a 4-0 win at home against The Strongest in the tournament.
In the meantime, Boca Juniors has also won both their Libertadores games so far this term. The away team has scored only three goals in that period. Their previous encounter in the tournament was at home and they defeated Santos with a 2-0 scoreline.
As such, the draw no bet over Boca Juniors and the BTTS will probably be the best bet for the punters regarding their h2h history with the host.
