Boca Juniors and The Strongest compete in the final game of Group C for a place in the Copa Libertadores Round of 16 on Thursday at 1am (UK time).
As it stands, it’s a three-way race for the final qualification place with Barcelona SC already through to the knockouts. Boca currently sit in second on seven points, but Santos — who take on Barcelona — and The Strongest remain just a point behind, meaning it’s all to play for on the final matchday of the group phase.

Boca Juniors vs The Strongest build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
After two wins from their opening two games — including a curtain-raising triumph over Thursday’s opposition — Boca have stumbled, going winless in the ensuing three contests and now scrambling to beat an in-form Tigre and progress to the knockout rounds.
For the Bolivian side, they remain rooted to the foot of the group table, but a win over Boca could see them advance to the knockouts, providing Santos don’t beat Barcelona SC in their final game. Third is enough to secure progression to the Copa Sudamericana, but fourth is complete elimination.
- Boca Juniors (vs Barcelona SC): Andrada; Capaldo, Lopez, Izquierdoz, Mas; Medina, Campuzano, Almendra; Pavon, Villa, Soldano.
- The Strongest (vs Santos): D Vaca; Torres, Castillo, Marteli, Valverde, Sagredo; R Vaca, Miranda, Willie; Reinoso, Blackburn.
Marcos Rojo and Eduardo Salvio are both currently out of action, with the former recently returning to the side for the penalty triumph over eternal rivals River Plate but missing their previous outing against Barcelona SC. Teenage midfielder Cristian Medina is also likely to start having played 80 minutes in the goalless stalemate against the Ecuadorians.

Player to watch: Cristian Pavon (Boca Juniors)
Cristian Pavon has long been linked with a move to Europe and one of the big hitters, but for now the 11-capped Argentina international remains on the books of Boca and continues to dazzle Bombonera with his quick feet, vision and creative improvisation. The pint-sized trickster is the joker in the pack for Miguel Angel Russo, able to turn it on in the blink of an eye and provide the requisite quality needed to unlock doors, break down stubborn defences and metaphorically snap ankles. With Pavon skidding across the turf and electrifying the bylines, Boca should pose a menacing threat going forward, and undoubtedly enter this contest as favourites to progress.
