Boca Juniors vs Atletico Tucuman Prediction

Boca Juniors got the better of Talleres Cordoba, in their most recent outing, by posting a narrow 2-1 scorecard, at the last blast of the whistle. The win has kept them hot on the tail of table-toppers River Plate, who are currently sporting a three-point cushion at the helm.

On the other hand, Atletico Tucuman are on a dismal winless streak in the first division, which has now stretched to five games on the trot. The visitors were held to a 1-1 draw by Defensa y Justicia in their previous clash at home. While on the road, they shared the spoils with Racing Club, after both teams scored a goal apiece.

Miserably, the guests have now dropped points in half of their past six outings, and have also admitted defeat thrice away from home so far too.

In sharp contrast, Boca Juniors have stumbled just once at home this season. Given the evident difference in form between the two sides and the home advantage at hand for Boca Juniors, a defeat is certainly looming large for Atletico Tucuman in this one.

Furthermore, the hosts have scored more goals at home than on the road this term. In fact, they have found the back of the net twelve times from their past nine games here.

Meanwhile, Atletico Tucuman have also been keen on getting their names on the scoresheet in their recent outings. Impressively, the guests have scored a goal or more in each of their past five trips on the road.

Taking into account that their last h2h meeting here also featured over 2.5 goals on the charts, count on both teams to rack up the goals tally this Sunday as well.
