Internacional welcome Boca Juniors to the Estadio Jose Pinheiro Borda on Thursday at 00:30 am (UK Time), with both sides looking to kick off the 1st leg of their Copa Libertadores round of 16 tie on a positive note.
Internacional have endured a terrible run of form lately as they are without victory in six competitive games since a 2-1 home win against Atletico GO three weeks ago. The most worrying fact is that Internacional have failed to score in three of their last five fixtures. Despite this poor form, Internacional still find themselves 4th in the Brazilian Serie A standings, just five points behind the current leaders Atletico-MG. At home, they have been slightly better over the past two months, but they are currently on a three-game winless streak.
On the contrary, Boca Juniors have won 11 of their last 15 games across all competitions. They had lost back-to-back games prior to their 2-0 home victory against Newell’s Old Boys on Sunday. Furthermore, the Argentines are currently on a nine-game unbeaten streak on the road, having won eight in the process. They have also kept a clean sheet in five of their last nine competitive trips. The bad news is that Boca have failed to win in any of their three visits to the Estadio Jose Pinheiro Borda and haven’t scored a single goal in this timeframe.
Can Internacional maintain their positive H2H record over Boca Juniors? Or will Boca Juniors record a sixth consecutive away victory?
