Boca Juniors preview: Struggling to find their best form

After winning just one of their first four matches at the start of the new season in Primera Division, Boca Juniors find themselves in the lower half of the standings early on. On the bright side, Boca Juniors have managed to finish second in their Copa Libertadores group and secure their place in the Round of 16.

Meanwhile, Luca Langoni, Jorge Nicolas Figal, and Aaron Anselmino are listed as doubtful on Boca's injury list. However, they will certainly be without suspended Marcos Rojo and Luis Advincula, who's on international duty.

Predicted lineup: Romero (GK), Fabra, Lema, Di Lollo, Blanco, Medina, E. Fernandez, P. Fernandez, Zenon, Cavani & Merentiel

Velez preview: No losses in recent matches

After losing their first game of the season in Primera Division, Velez have remained unbeaten in their next three games. However, they only won one of those matches, so they're currently only 15th in the standings with five points. Still, it's clear that Velez are getting into form and given that they have reached the final of Copa de la Liga Profesional, their ambitions are pretty high for Primera Division too.

Emanuel Mammana, Ricardo Centurion, and Yeison Gordillo are on the team's injury list right now.

Predicted lineup: Marchiori (GK), Garcia, D. Fernandez, V. Gomez, E. Gomez, Bouzat, Ordonez, Pizzini, Aquino, T. Fernandez & Romero

Player to watch: Edinson Cavani

While the Uruguayan forward hasn't yet scored in Primera Division so far, he's the Boca's top scorer in Copa Sudamericana this season with three goals. Cavani also scored six goals for his team in Copa de la Liga Profesional.

Can Cavani score from a free kick?

It is certainly a small sample, but Cavani has scored once from a direct free kick in Copa Sudamericana. Can he do the same in this match?
