Boca Juniors welcome Santos to the La Bombonera on Wednesday night at 22:15 pm (UK Time) for the 1st leg of their Copa Libertadores semi-final.
Boca Juniors have had a couple of difficult games in the previous two Copa Libertadores rounds, but they did well to beat both Internacional and Racing Club and they’re now facing Santos, who haven’t enjoyed such a good run of form lately.
Boca have been flying high of late as they head into this clash on the back of three wins and a draw in their last four competitive fixtures. In addition, they have scored at least two goals in each of their last four matches while keeping two clean sheets in the process. On home soil, Boca have suffered just one loss in their last six games across all competitions. In addition, they have conceded just one goal in their last five Copa Libertadores home matches.
On the contrary, Santos have endured a sticky patch of form recently, having won just once in their last seven competitive outings. However, their sole victory during this run was an impressive 4-1 home success over Gremio in the 2nd leg of their Copa Libertadores quarter-finals. Their away form has also been poor, with Santos losing five of their last eight competitive trips while winning just once. The good news is Santos managed to score at least once in three of their last four away games.
Can Boca Juniors maximize their home advantage and extend their unbeaten streak to five games? Or will Santos secure their first-ever victory over the Argentines?
