Comparing the two squads

Barcelona SC currently sits in second place in the Ecuadorian Serie A, only 2 points short of first place. Despite this, the team from Guayaquil is still the highest-scoring side in its domestic league. After 10 games, their goal difference sits at 22-10. Barcelona also showed no mercy in the previous Copa Libertadores matches against Santos and The Strongest, where they kept a clean sheet and scored 6 goals in total.

On the other hand, Boca Juniors is leading the Argentinian league, with River Plate of course tracing them closely. The Blue and Gold have a spectacular goal record in the league with 35 goals for and just 8 against. Boca Juniors have conceded just 8 goals in 23 league matches, which is not something you see every day. This defense will put Barcelona SC to the test, but the Ecuadorian site has proven that it can challenge such opponents.
