Boca Juniors take on the visitors Banfield in the round 6 match of Argentinian Liga Profesional. The match will be played on Saturday, July 2nd at Estadio Alberto J. Armando (Buenos Aires)
Boca Juniors are certainly a legend and the flagship of all Argentinean football. Last season, however, was a failure for the Genoese - otherwise it is simply impossible for them to consider the 4th place. And it is even strange that at the same time, Sebastian Battaglia, with all the status of an ex-player, retained his position as a coach. However, in the new season he began to succeed. First, it was in Buenos Aires where Copa Diego Maradona Trophy. In addition, the Argentines won their group in the Cope Libertadores. The draw for them in the 1/8 finals threw a very difficult opponent, Corinthians. But in Brazil it was possible to start the playoffs with a strategically good result, a goalless draw. In the Liga, against this background, the favorite so far, one might say, is “feverish”, they alternate successful fights with unsuccessful ones. Having won three times, "Boca" has already lost twice, including in the last round to "Union" in its field.

Banfield created a sensation when she won the Argentine Championship in 2009. But after all, after that there was already a relegation from the top division. And the results of recent years are frankly not impressive. In last year's Liga, the "drills" closed the 2nd ten in the final standings. In Copa Diego Maradona in the spring they were not bad, but nothing more, the results - 19 points in 14 matches. However, they also showed noticeable progress compared to 2021. In the Copa Sudamericana, where the Argentines took only 5 points and finished last in their quartet. The club also looks good in the summer, within the framework of the new Liga season. Starting with a home loss to the Newells Old Boys, then Banfield took 8 points in the following 4 matches in June. So only the top five had more points in their assets after the first month.
Boca Juniors have not lost a head-to-head to Banfield since 2010. But, on the other hand, in both last matches, in 2021, it was not possible to win. First there was the final of Copa Diego Maradona, in January, won by the grandee only on penalties. And in July, as part of the championship, the sides did not score goals. Bookmakers quite expectedly consider Boca Juniors, playing at home, as the unconditional favorite of the confrontation. But Banfield has been pretty good in recent weeks too, so it’s worth considering a bet “over 2.0 goals”.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.0 scored goals.
