Team News: Boca Juniors
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Boca Juniors gaffer Jorge Almirón to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Luca Langoni (Torn muscle bundle) is out of contention.
Team News: Lanús
With a completely injury-free squad available to choose from, the Lanús manager Frank Kudelka does not have any fitness concerns at all coming into this clash.
We’re of the view that Lanús could find themselves up against it to see themselves scoring against this Boca Juniors side who we think might well be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
Therefore, we predict a hard-fought 1-0 winning margin for Boca Juniors after 90 minutes.
Hoping for a good game.
