The match

The second phase of the Argentina Primera Division league season enters matchday five with Boca Juniors hosting Union Santa Fe at La Bombonera in Buenos Aires. Boca will be looking to extend their winning run to three games and continue the positive momentum ahead of an all important first leg Copa Libertadores match against Corinthians on the horizon. The hosts have impressed in recent outings, netting eight goals in the last two matches with their latest performance a 3-1 away win against Barracas Central. They return to Buenos Aires in this match and will be confident of securing the three points having not lost on home soil in the last 12 fixtures. Their opponents today come into this match with a 1-1-2 record and will be hoping for a much improved performance on the defensive end after being humiliated 5-1 by River Plate in front of their own fans their last time out.  

Union will have to sort out their defensive woes if they are to stand any chance in this match. River showed in the last fixture what a quality attacking unit can do to this defense, mercilessly tearing them apart for Union’s most goals conceded since December of 2020. Things won’t get any easier for Tatengue here, as they face the highest scoring team in the division in a Boca Juniors side that has only failed to find the net once in their last eight fixtures across all competitions. The hosts will likely rotate a few players with matches coming quickly and an important trip to Sao Paulo coming up in just four days. Even with a partially rotated squad, this Boca side should have enough quality attacking depth to get themselves the three points.

Key Statistics

  • Boca Juniors are 6-1-1 over the last eight matches in all competitions and have won the last four straight at home.
  • Boca has won their last four home meetings with Union in the Primera Division, outscoring them by a total of 8-2 during that time.
  • Union Santa Fe has an away record of 1-3-5 in both phases of the league so far and has failed to find the net in four of their nine away matches.

The bet of our experts

We’re going to back Boca Juniors to get the win in this match. This is a generous price considering the recent form of both sides and the line is clearly influenced by the hosts' impending trip to Brazil for the Copa Libertadores. It’s tough to back this Union side at the moment given their defensive frailties and coming up against an in-form Boca Juniors attack. Even with some likely rotation, the hosts should be able to record a relatively straightforward 2-0 victory.
