After two seasons away Corinthians were drawn into Group E featuring Boca Juniors, Deportivo Cali and Always Ready subsequently finishing one point behind their Argentine rivals. Vítor Pereira’s men only managed two victories from six matches with both coming at home against Deportivo Cali (1-0) and Boca (2-0). In the latter Maycon netted a brace which ensured he would end up as Corinthians leading marksman in the group phase. That aforementioned success was Corinthians fourth consecutive home win in the Copa but they couldn’t make it five on the bounce when Always Ready held them to a 1-1 draw last month.
This campaign represents Boca’s fifth successive Copa tournament appearance. Last time out they failed to go beyond the round of 16, eliminated by Brazilian side Atlético Mineiro, which ended a streak of three consecutive semi-finals outings. Sebastián Battaglia’s side netted the same amount of goals as Corinthians (five) while conceding one more. Although they suffered two defeats compared to Corinthians one Boca drew two fewer games meaning the 34-time Primera División champions won this group by the slender of margins. Argentine striker Darío Benedetto finished as Boca’s leading scorer with three goals.
Scoreline prediction: Corinthians 2-1 Boca Juniors
