Boca Juniors vs Libertad
Date: Wednesday, 8 August 2018
Kick-Off at 23:30 UK
Venue: Buenos Aires.
One of the most popular clubs in South America, Boca Juniors, are going to face Libertad in the first leg clash in the Copa Libertadores eight finals.
Although they suffered only one defeat in the group phase, the hosts found their place in the knockout stage thanks to Junior’s defeat away to Palmeiras in the latest round.
They have been involved in a lot of draws but still the Argentine champions managed to find their place in the top two.
Carlos Tevez is back in the team after an unsuccessful Chinese adventure and should be the main striking force for the home side.
Boca Juniors have been playing pretty good in the back and they might provide something big in this campaign
Libertad didn’t have too tough group, but still they managed to finish at the top of the table. They were pretty convincing as they suffered just one defeat and allowed four goals.
However, they haven’t started very well in the domestic championship as they are sitting on the bottom of the table after four rounds in Primera Division Clausura.
The visitors are in a bad momentum and they will have hard task to get something from this one.
Boca Juniors vs Libertad: Head-to-head
These two sides faced each other in the Copa Libertadores quarter-finals back in 2007 and after a draw in Buenos Aires, Boca Juniors managed to find the way through the next round with an away victory. Both clashes remained under 2.5 margin.
Boca Juniors vs Libertad: Prediction
Boca Juniors are favourites in this one and they should be able to secure an advantage in the first leg match.
The visitors are in a bad form and home side should be more than capable of providing a convincing display.
Although their last two head to head clashes were not too efficient, in this one we might see at least three goals.
Libertad conceded in four matches in a row and Eduardo Villalba’s side will have a tough task to defend their net from the attacking line led by Carlos Tevez.
