Rosario Central vs Boca Juniors Prediction

Rosario Central fell out of their winning groove last week on the road after Central Cordoba did just enough to post a 1-1 draw. Nevertheless, the hosts are still unbeaten in their last four games on the trot and have amassed ten points from a possible twelve in the process as well.

At the moment, Rosario Central are sitting eight on the ladder, six points behind league leaders Boca Juniors.

The visiting contingent, on the other hand, have been alternating between wins and draws in their past four fixtures. Their last clash at home, saw them hold Argentinos Jrs to 1-1 scorecard. Prior to which they pulled off a comfortable 2-0 win over Union Sante Fe.

It is also worth mentioning that the guests have stumbled just twice in the Superliga so far, only one of which was on the road.

Furthermore, although the hosts are on a two-match winning streak on home soil, it needs saying that both of those wins came against sides that are currently dwelling in the bottom half of the cluster.

Taking into account that Boca Juniors are also the second-best away side in the table as of now, the odds are certainly stacked up against Rosario Central this week.

However, it is too soon to call a clear winner in this one. The home side have salvaged just a point in three of their past seven games here. Considering that Boca Juniors have also shared the spoils twice already on the road, the safest punt would be backing a draw no bet.

Additionally, five of the last seven fixtures at Estadio Gigante de Arroyito have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts.

Meanwhile, Boca Juniors have been tame in the final third in their respective outings. They have found the back of the net just seven times so far away from home.

Given that their past two h2h meetings here have also been low scoring affairs, expect a goal or two at the most on the scorecards in this one.
