Santos vs Boca Juniors Predictions: Sportpesa Midweek Jackpot Predictions
- A goalless draw between Santos and Boca Juniors – two teams that can boast club legends like Pelé and Diego Maradona – may have disappointed neutrals, but probably delighted a Santos side that started that leg as rank outsiders. That was the first meeting of these two since Boca triumphed in the 2003 Copa Libertadores final, and with home advantage now with Santos, revenge will surely be on the mind of the three-time tournament winners.
- One defeat from Santos’ last nine competitive home games shows they should be difficult to beat again here (W5, D3, L1) in a run that saw Santos net the opener before the 15th minute four times. A five-game unbeaten home run in this competition versus Argentinian teams is a morale boost too (W3, D2 – 90 minutes only), although their last such defeat was against none other than Boca in the 2003 final!
- Boca remained very much in the hunt for a joint-record seventh Copa Libertadores title, but have now failed to win three of their five knockout legs in this season’s tournament (W2, D1, L2), and managed to hit the net before HT in just one. Still, they travel here unbeaten in six competitive matches (W3, D3), despite netting first on just three occasions.
- The 34-time Argentinian champions also have just one defeat across their last 14 competitive road trips (W10, D3, L1), but all five Copa Libertadores games within that period were tight affairs involving under 2.5 goals (W3, D1, L1). In fact, five of Boca’s last six away games in this tournament versus Brazilian sides also featured under 2.5 goals (W2, D4). Courtesy of https://www.flashscore.com/match/YPMfIBkG/#match-summary
