Boca Juniors vs Union de Santa Fe
Boca Juniors vs Union prediction brings an exciting match. After the international break, the Argentinian first division is back and Boca Juniors will receive Union de Santa Fe at ‘La Bombonera’ with the only goal of taking the three points to maintain the lead of the league.
The FIFA’s break came at a good moment for Boca Juniors, who needed it to recover their shape after a series of games on the national league and Copa Libertadores. Boca is currently leading the table with 25 points with a 7-4-2 record. These stats and position are shared with Lanus and Argentinos Jrs. and the fixture for this weekend seems to favour Boca Juniors, who can distance themselves from the rest. One good news for the team’s coach, Alfaro, is the return of Carlos Tevez on training after haven been injured for a couple of weeks. Tevez is working with the main squad and we might be able to see the number 10 back on the field this weekend.
- Boca Juniors are undefeated in 17 of their last 19 matches (Superliga)
- Boca Juniors have scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches against Union in all competitions
Boca Juniors vs Union de Santa Fe Prediction
Union de Santa Fe is placed 16 with 16 points. Their current record is 4-4-5 and they are coming to this round after two draws and a loss, the last one at home. The team has missed the punch we are used to seeing, and this season, Santa Fe lacks creativity and good ideas both in offence and defence. Regarding their last visits to Boca’s stadium, they lost the 3 last matches there: 2-1 in 2016, 2-1 in 2017 and 2-0 in 2018. This year, the gap between both teams is clearly bigger and we will probably see a victory from the locals.
