Reason For Boca Juniors vs Atlético Tucumán Predictions

  • Boca have lost just 1 of their 9 home games in the Superiga this season.
  • Over 18 league matches, Boca have conceded an average of just 0.44 goals a game.
  • Atletico Tucuman played some 3,640 metres above sea level in the early hours of Thursday morning, going down 2-0 losers in La Paz against The Strongest; leaving them tired and set to rotate for this match.

Boca hoping for a routine home win

Miguel Angel Russo picked up his first competitive win since returning as Boca manager last Monday, with his troops coming away 2-1 winners from a trip to face Talleres in Cordoba. El Xeneize played well in said fixture and the win kept them in touching distance of league leaders River; coming into this round of fixtures just 3 points behind their arch enemy.

With regaining their Superliga crown a big objective, Boca cannot afford to drop points often and Sunday’s game is one they’ll definitely be expecting to win, up against a distracted Atletico Tucuman side. Having lost just 1 league match at home this season, Boca are a dependable force at La Bombonera and their prospects certainly look bright heading into this fixture.

Atletico arrive in a distracted state

Meanwhile, Atletico Tucuman had to play in the gruelling altitude of La Paz in the early hours of Thursday morning; where they went down 2-0 losers in their Copa Libertadores second round clash with The Strongest. El Decano must now focus on trying to turn said tie around in the return leg on Thursday, meaning this game is little more than a distraction to them.

Indeed, with his team jaded and fatigued and needing to build energy for the big midweek affair, visiting boss Ricardo Zielinski is highly likely to field a second string on Sunday. That limits Atletico’s chances of securing any kind of result from the game and their prospects don’t look the strongest in a trip that would have been extremely difficult even with their best XI on the pitch.

Boca should win comfortably

Ultimately, there only looks like being one winner in La Boca and that’s the hosts. They are the only team fully focused on the clash, have a desperate need for the points and should prove far too strong for a heavily rotated visiting outfit.

All things considered, we just can’t picture Boca having any issues in securing victory on Sunday and feel that backing them on the -1 handicap provides good value at current odds. They’ve conceded an average of just 0.44 goals a game in the Superliga this term and with the visitors expected to pose a very minimal threat, Boca should be able to run out comfortable 2-0 winners.
