Boca Juniors vs Atletico Junior
South America – Copa Libertadores
Date: Thursday, 5 April 2018
Kick-Off at 01:45 UK
Venue: Estadio Alberto Jose Armando (Buenos Aires).

Colombian Junior have made it to the group phase of the most elite football competition in South America after failing to do so in the last term of the competition. However, Alexis Mendoza’s men had no luck with the draw given they are part of a super tough group 8 with the likes of Boca Juniors and Palmeiras in it. The Colombians have already felt the strength of the highest level football a month ago when they suffered a 0-3 disaster in the opening fixture of the group against Brazilian Palmeiras.

Los Tiburones are about to face an even tougher challenge on Wednesday evening when they travel to Argentine capital to tackle Buenos Aires giants Boca Juniors. The hosts are back in Copa Libertadores after skipping the previous edition and they’ve started off with a goalless draw away at Peruvian Alianza Lima. They’ve been enjoying a stellar form in this term of Argentine Superliga where Schelotto’s side sit as many as nine points clear off Talleres Cordoba after 21 rounds.

The main problem for Boca’s head coach is the absence of his main striker Dario Benedetto who has not played since November last year. Cristian Pavon is the key figure in his absence. Goals in weekend’s home win over Talleres Cordoba came from Walter Bou and Pablo Perez.

Boca Juniors vs Atletico Junior: Head-to-head

The two sides have battled it out in the last 16 round of the same competition back in 2005.

Boca Juniors advanced 7-3 on aggregate thanks to a superb display in the reverse fixture in front of their fans (4-0).

Boca Juniors vs Atletico Junior: Prediction

Boca are massive favourites and we expect them to confirm the gulf in quality and clinch a comprehensive victory in front of the home crowd.

Schelloto’s men have won five on the bounce at home in Superliga. Since Junior showed no attacking intensions whatsoever when they tackled Palmeiras at home in the first round, we will alternatively back Boca to keep a clean sheet at 2.00.
