The head coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto can be thrilled with his side’s attacking display at Estadio Defensores del Chaco as Cristian Pavon, Mauro Zarate, Carlos Tevez and Edwin Cardona all found the back of the net on the evening.

The team thus boosted up the much-needed confidence after a poor set of displays in the domestic league where Boca failed to find the back of the net at all in last two games against Estudiantes and Huracan.

Can they build on the Copa Libertadores success to see off Velez Sarsfield on the home patch on Sunday evening?

Boca Juniors vs Velez Sarsfield: Head-to-head

Boca cruised past Velez in last two H2H games, netting as many as seven goals in two convincing victories away at Estadio Jose Amalfitani.

Xeneizes generally lead the head to head tie by 8 wins ahead of their 41st encounter with El Fortin.

Boca won 12, drew 6 and lost just 1 of 20 home games against Velez Sarsfield.

Boca Juniors vs Velez Sarsfield: Prediction

Velez ended the previous term of Superliga far away from positions leading to continental competitions and they will struggle to do much better this time about either, at least if we are to judge by the slow start to the new campaign.

El Fortin took four points from opening three games, but the head coach Gabriel Heinze clearly expected more of ties against Racing Club and Banfield in past two rounds.

Velez failed to produce in the final third in these outings and they’ll certainly struggle to hurt the highly-motivated defending champions in the fourth round.

The hosts are massive favourites to get their domestic league campaign up and running with a victory over the team they eased past over the course of history.

The home win is a banker at 1.57, while you can alternatively back Boca Juniors to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 1.83.
