THE TEAM NEWS

BOCA JUNIORS

  • Boca Juniors sit at the top of the standings with 28 points and they are above Argentinos Juniors due to their superior goal differential. Aside from having the best defence in the league, they also enter this game on a three-game undefeated streak (W2, D1). They’re coming off a 2-0 home win over Union Santa Fe the last time out.
  • Franco Soldano will be Boca Juniors’ lone absentee due to an injury, and he has missed the last few games for El Xeneize. Carlos Tevez has been dealing with a muscular problem in recent weeks, but he should be available ahead of kick-off.

Expected starting XI: Esteban Andrada; Julio Buffarini, Carlos Izquierdoz, Lisandro López, Emmanuel Más; Nicolás Capaldo, Iván Marcone; Eduardo Salvio, Alexis Mac Allister, Emanuel Reynoso; Ramon Ábila

ARGENTINOS JUNIORS

  • Argentinos Juniors are tied with Boca Juniors at the top of the standings with 28 points but sit below their opponents due to their inferior goal differential – Argentinos have +5 and Boca have +13. Argentinos have lost just once in their last five matches (W3, D1, L1) and are coming off a 1-0 home win over Newell’s Old Boys the last time out.
  • Jonathan Galván will be the lone absentee for Argentinos Juniors ahead of this match. He has been ruled out due to an undisclosed injury. There are no other absentees for them ahead of this contest.

Expected starting XI: Lucas Chávez; Jonathan Sandoval, Miguel Torren, Carlos Quintana, Elías Gómez; Fausto Vera, Iván Colmán, Francis Mac Allister; Damián Batallini, Santiago Silva, Gabriel Hauche

THE PREDICTION

This clash between both league leaders should be an exciting matchup, although Argentinos have been slightly better than Boca over the last five league matches. Boca have a slight edge, though, as they are on a three-game undefeated streak while Estudiantes have won just once over that same span. These two sides have the best defences in the league, but Boca own a stronger attacking unit and a nastier defence. Expect Boca to take advantage of the fact they’re playing at home to keep the three points at La Bombonera.
