Corinthians vs Boca Juniors Preview

Corinthians

The “Almighty,” as the fans call this club, has been in excellent shape recently, improving the results as time goes by. In the past five games, Corinthians has three wins and two draws, and when looking back further in the past, they lost only once in the most recent ten events, having four wins, five draws, and that defeat, which by the way, took place on the road against Cuiaba, 1-0.

Vitor Pereira’s unit is second in the domestic championship, and they are mainly a defensive-minded team. One allowed goal in the recent five games is all you need to know about their defensive qualities.

Corinthians is without a loss over the previous 17 home games, and the last defeat came in early February. After that, they won on 13 occasions, recording four draws as well, noting that the previous four clashes at Neo Quimica Arena saw them keeping clean sheets.

Boca Juniors

Xeneizes have narrowly missed the Apertura title, despite playing excellent football back then. The opening of Clausura was a bit slower with three wins and two defeats in five games, but overall, this team plays excellent football.

Boca ended first in its Copa Libertadores group ahead of Corinthians, and that tells a lot about their quality level. The most recent three events were pretty efficient, which isn’t characteristic of this unit.

After a 5-3 win over Tigre, they beat Barracas Central, 1-3, and then lost at home to Union Santa Fe, 1-2. Usually, when Boca plays, there aren’t more than two goals; in general, the Xeneizes keep their net intact. Boca has four wins and a loss in the past five road trips, with four games ending without both teams netting.

Corinthians vs Boca Juniors Head to Head

Corinthians was better in the group stage of this year’s Copa Libertadores. They won the opening event at this venue, 2-0, while the second at La Bombonera ended without winners, 1-1. The hosts had two players sent off back that day (May 18).

Corinthians vs. Boca Juniors Prediction

The hosts will be cautious because Boca has a very experienced unit, and the same goes for the visitors from Argentina. There aren’t any secrets between these teams, as they have already met twice in a short span. That’s why our pick here would be under 2.5 goals. Expect a positioned, tactical encounter between two sides who will be careful not to make mistakes while trying to protect their respective goals.

Our verdict: Under 2.5 goals
