There will be a big game feel in the Argentinian capital as Boca Juniors target their third victory in the Copa Libertadores this season.

Date and kick-off time

Copa Libertadores Group Stage, Wednesday, June 7, kick-off 1.00am BST

Predicted score

Boca Juniors 1-0 Colo Colo

Suggested bets

Under 2.5 goals

Boca Juniors to win by one goal margin


Having bowed out in the round-of-16 for two years running, Boca Juniors will be intent on going further this time around.

However, before Jorge Almiron and his men can think about knockout stage football, they have two group games remaining which need taking care of.

The first of those matches comes against Colo Colo as the Chilean outfit make their way to La Bombonera.

A win for Boca Juniors would guarantee their spot in the next round and the hosts will certainly fancy their chances.

When the two sides met in Santiago last month, it was Boca who powered to a 2-0 victory.

Since that result, the Argentine outfit have lacked consistency, winning three and losing three of their following six games.

Colo Colo have also struggled since their meeting with Boca, boasting just one win from their following four outings.

From a betting perspective, backing under 2.5 goals is the way to go. Five of Boca's last six matches have seen just one goal each while Colo Colo's recent games also proving low-scoring.

Both teams have scored four times in their last six outings, though Boca will have the edge with a lively home support behind them.

Boca to win the match by a one goal margin is our main recommendation.
