Next, we switch over to South America and a look ahead to opening day of the Argentinian top flight season and a clash between Boca Juniors and Huracan as the betting tips continue at the Estadio Alberto José Armando.

Boca Jrs Prediction – Can Boca Jrs repeat top three finish?

Last season’s Argentinian Superliga campaign saw Boca Juniors finish in 3rd place and 6 points ahead of River Plate to claim a spot in the Copa Libertadores.

The hosts made a good start in the Copa Libertadores during the week when they recorded a 1-0 win away at Brazil Serie A side, Athletico PR.

Boca Jrs will now turn their attentions to the start of the Argentinian top flight season this Sunday when they play host to Huracan.

Although they eventually lost to Tigre 2-0 in the Copa de la Superliga, the hosts will no doubt be confident they can get off to a good start in the league.

Overall form ended with Boca Juniors unbeaten in their last 6 matches of last season’s Superliga, while results at home were also strong.

The home side won 6 of their last 7 matches of the season on home turf at their Estadio Alberto José Armando.

They finished up with a strong home record of 9-1-2 22/7 which included no fewer than 7 clean sheets.

Huracan Prediction – Can Huracan make top 9 cut?

Sunday evening’s visitors, Huracan, narrowly missed out on a top 9 finish in the Argentinian Superliga last season and will be looking to go one step better this time around.

A deficit of just 1 point separated them from 9th placed Tigre who also won the Copa de la Superliga by beating Boca Juniors in the final.

Back to Huracan though, and inconsistent results really let them down last season, especially in the second half of the season.

The visitors managed to register just 1 win out of their last 9 matches overall in the Argentinian top flight which ultimately cost them a place in the Sudamericana.

Huracan had previously suffered an alarming slump in form which saw them endure a miserable 8-match sequence without a win.

This poor set of results included 6 defeats and it wasn’t until the final day of the season when they recorded a 2-0 home win over Atletico Tucuman.

By this time it was too late, and together with their slump in results on the road, the damage was done.

They ended up with an away record of 4-3-5 12/15 but this masks the fact that they went without a win from their last 6 matches.


Key-Facts – Boca Jrs v Huracan

  • Boca Jrs won 6 of their last 7 matches of the season on home turf
  • Boca Jrs also kept 7 clean sheets from their 12 home matches last season
  • Huracan finished last season without an away win from their last 6 matches


Betting Tips Verdict

Even though they have the Copa Libertadores to contend with, Boca Juniors should still claim a win on opening day here.
