Estudiantes vs Boca Juniors
Argentina – Superliga
Date: Monday, 20 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Ciudad de La Plata (La Plata).
One of the derby matches of the 2nd round in Argentine Superliga is going to be contested between Estudiantes and Boca Juniors.
Home side started the season with a narrow defeat against Godoy Cruz and they are searching for their first points. They didn’t have a successful season last time as they finished at disappointing 16th position.
Estudiantes picked up just a point from the final four rounds and they were involved in fairly tight matches last season. Gaston Fernandez and the lads need to improve their home performances as they suffered seven defeats in front of their fans.
On the other hand, the defending champions opened their campaign with a victory over Talleres Cordoba and they are looking for an early-winning streak.
Carlos Tevez returned to the club after an unsuccessful episode in China and he’s going to be away side’s star player this year.
Boca Juniors have been the most efficient side in the competition while their defence was one of the tightest in the league. They’ve been very good wen playing away from home, however in the last five occasions they haven’t managed to get back home with a win.
Estudiantes vs Boca Juniors: Head-to-head
Both sides have been equally successful in their recent head to head clashes as they managed to book two wins each in the last five encounters. Draws have been rarely seen in their clashes which are low scoring ones.
Estudiantes vs Boca Juniors: Prediction
A very tough clash to predict, but we believe the visitors are slight favourites in this one and they should be able to get back home with all three points. Boca Juniors should extend their unbeatable streak against Estudiantes to four games.
These two teams have been playing very tight lately and this one shouldn’t be much different. Another hard battle is expected, and the crowd shouldn’t be able to see more than two goals in total in this match.
