Banfield vs Boca Juniors – Argentinian Superliga: On the Argentinian Superliga, Banfield hosts Boca Juniors on the 16th round of the competition.
Boca is still on a tranquil position in the league and they are preparing themselves for their debut in Copa Libertadores. At the end of the month, the team will make its debut in Peru against Alianza Lima.
But until then, they face Banfield this Monday and San Martin de San Juan next weekend. As I’ve said, Boca is on a good moment of form and they have increased their advantage in the lead of this competition.
The team has 37 points, having a 7-points advantage over 2nd place Talleres. Since the restart of the competition at the beginning of the year, Boca is undefeated with 2 wins and 1 draw, although they haven’t won any friendly match during that break.

Banfield isn’t making a great campaign. There was some expectation surrounding the team after a great campaign last season, that inclusively made them qualify for the current Copa Libertadores’ play-off. But things aren’t going so well for them.
They sit in 18th place with 19 points conquered. Speaking about Libertadores, the team is in the middle of the tie where they will decide whether or not they advance onto the group stage of the competition.
And they’ve drawn at home against Independiente del Valle 2-2, so they will need to fight to qualify in Ecuador.
Banfield vs Boca Juniors – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Therefore, their manager Falcioni will go with a team filled with reserves.
Therefore, I believe that Boca won’t waste this chance here. But instead of looking for the winners’ market, I will go on the team’s goals market.
Boca’s strong suit is their attacking front, with Tévez and co. Therefore, I believe that the team will score more than 2 goals against Banfield’s reserves.
