Boca Juniors vs Talleres prediction: A close, low-scoring duel

While Boca Juniors are the bigger name, Talleres are the vice-champions of Argentina and in great form. Still, it's tough to win at La Bombonera, so we can see this match ending in a draw.

Key stats

  • Four of the last six meetings between Boca Juniors and Talleres have gone under 2.5 total goals.
  • We saw fewer than three goals in three of the last five matches played by Talleres de Cordoba.
  • Three of the last six H2H duels between these teams have ended without a winner.
  • Talleres are on a streak of 16 games without a loss.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Boca Juniors the more likely winners

  • HOME: 21/20 (2.05) – 48.80%
  • DRAW: 19/10 (2.90) – 34.50%
  • AWAY: 12/5 (3.40) – 29.40%

It's clear from these Boca Juniors vs Talleres odds that the hosts are the expected winners, which is mostly based on the fact that Boca Juniors are one of the best teams in the country and hosting the match.

However, if we look at the form, Talleres are doing much better at the moment. After all, they are on a five-game winning streak in all competitions, while Boca Juniors have only won twice in their last six games.

Boca Juniors preview: Struggling to get into rhythm

While they barely made the playoffs in Copa de la Liga Profesional, Boca Juniors were close to making it to the final since they've lost to Estudiantes in the semis only after a penalty shootout. That being said, Boca Juniors haven't been in great form recently with just two wins in their last six games in all competitions.

One of the reasons for the shaky form is Boca's long list of absentees, with Luis Advincula, Cristian Medina, Jorge Nicolas Figal, Cristian Lema, Marcos Rojo, Aaron Anselmino, and Lucas Blondel all out with injuries.

Predicted Lineup: Romero – Blanco, Di Lollo, dos Santos, Saracchi – G. Fernandez, Zenon, E. Fernandez, Saralegui – Merentiel, Langoni

Can Girotti score first?

Half of the eight goal that Girotti has scored this season have been the first goal of the match. So, if he scores, chances are good that he will be the first goalscorer.
