San Martin San Juan Prediction

San Martin occupy 21st place on the Superliga ladder ahead of this clash with Boca Jrs as the hosts return from their recent two away matches on the trot which yielded just one point for the hosts as they lost 1-0 at league leaders, Racing Club but took a point off Banfield in a 1-1 draw.

San Martin now return to home turf where they’ve recorded three of their four victories so far in this season’s Superliga with wins over Patronato, Velez Sarsfield and Union – the latter two victories being gained against teams sitting 5th and 9th place respectively in the Argentinian top flight.

However, these wins have been offset by losses to Huracan, Atletico Tucuman and Densa y Justicia so they’ll be wary of the threat from Boca Jrs tonight. San Martin’s forwards Bravo (3 goals) and Palacios (4 goals) look the most likely for the hosts.


Key-Facts – San Martin San Juan v Boca Jrs

  • San Martin SJ have beaten two of the sides sitting in the top 9 of the division
  • 5 of Boca Jrs’ 7 wins this season have been at home
  • Boca Jrs have conceded 2 goals or more in 3 of their 7 away matches


Boca Jrs Prediction

Boca Juniors sit in 6th place of the Argentinian Superliga and all three points on Thursday night would see them draw level on points with 5th placed Velez Sarsfield but first they have to negotiate a tricky trip to San Martin San Juan this evening.

Boca Jrs current league position owes much to their form at their Estadio Alberto José Armando ground as they’ve recorded 5 wins of their total of 7 this season on home turf, while overall, they’re unbeaten in their last four matches, winning three of these against Tigre, Patronato and Independiente.

Two of the last three wins though came on home turf while away from home they possess a more circumspect record of 2-3-2 6/7 with just one defeat from their last six matches which was at lowly Gimanasia La Plata.

Interestingly, Boca Jrs have conceded 2 goals or more in three of their seven away matches to date which could be a factor in tonight’s game.

Betting Tips Verdict

San Martin San Juan have shown they can get results at home and could well surprise high-flying Boca Jrs here.
