Boca Juniors will go into the meeting following on from a 2-0 Copa de la Liga Profesional win with the eclipse of Newell´s Old Boys in their last outing.
A succession of dependable showings by the Boca Juniors defenders has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their last 6 clashes in total. Over that same time, their own attack force has managed to score 10. Such a trend isn’t assured to be continued here, however.
