Boca Juniors vs Godoy Cruz
Argentina – Superliga.
Date: Sunday, 23 February 2020
Kick-Off at 22:40 UK/ 23:40 CET
Venue: Estadio Alberto J. Armando (Buenos Aires)
Boca is just 3 points below the toppers River Plate. If they want to keep the pressure on the latter they will need to keep winning. They will a normal day at the office against Godoy Cruz who is at the bottom of the league table. Boca finished 3rd last season; a poor end to a season which had more promise. This year they have not lost anybody to injury which helped coach big time.
Godoy Cruz has been at the bottom for a major part of the season. They lost 15 of their 20 league games till now. There is no other club that has conceded over 30 goals. Against an attacking team like Boca, they will suffer poorly for sure.
Boca Juniors vs Godoy Cruz: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Boca is on a 3 match winning run against Godoy.
- More than 2.5 goals have been scored in 4 of the last 5 head to head games.
- Both teams scored in all those 4 games also.
- The former Champs have 4 wins in their last 5 encounters with this opponent at home.
- They have scored 2 or more goals in 8 home h2h matches on the trot.
- More than 2.5 goals came in 4 of their 6 previous h2h matches at this ground.
Boca Juniors vs Godoy Cruz: Prediction
More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 recent games that the hosts were part of. They have scored 2 or more goals consistently over the recent games. Since the visitors have given away 2 goals per game this season till now. Even though they won the last game over Huracan, I don’t see them win against a team so high up the table. So I am backing a high scoring game with more than 2.5 goals at the final whistle.
It is ironic that two teams are in sheer extremes in terms of scoring and defending is playing each other. There is no better defense in the league than Boca themselves. So I strongly back the home side to not let the opponents score.
