Date: Sunday, 4th June 2017
Kick off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Alberto Jose Armando.

Boca Juniors compromised their title ambitions significantly over the last couple of weeks.

Guillermo Schelotto’s men dropped the ball last weekend when they only drew 1-1 with Huracan on the road.

Genoese are thus only a single point above River Plate, but they have a very tough fixture in the 27th round when they host the in-form Independiente side.

The top scorer Dario Benedetto, however, continued with his spell of excellent form as he bagged a goal in each of the last two games.

The Argentine striker will have a very tough task to keep the good form going against the rock-solid defense of Independiente.

Independiente

The Red Devils are undefeated in last 17 matches in all competitions. Ariel Holan’s defensive line looks impeccable as the team conceded only a single goal in last five fixtures in all competitions.

Independiente confirmed the quality by beating Alianza Lima 0-1 on the road in mid-week’s Copa Sudamericana action.

Boca Juniors vs Independiente: Head to head

Independiente have not claimed a single win over Boca since the iconic 4-5 win on the road in March 2012.

Boca won two out of last four meetings, each of which has seen both teams netting.

Boca Juniors vs Independiente: Prediction

Boca are in a must win situation, but they will have one hell of a task to see off Independiente who did not lose a single out of last 17 games.

We expect a tough one with very few goal scoring chances on both sides. The under 2.50 goals seems to be the best of the betting options set at the 4/6 odds.
