Boca Juniors take on the visitors Huracan in the round 20 match of Argentinian Liga Profesional. The match will be played on Tuesday, September 20th at Estadio Alberto J. Armando (Buenos Aires).
Boca Juniors are rightfully considered the grandee of Argentine football - 28 titles in the elite division alone, including in 2018 and 2020. In the spring, the "Genoese”, for the 2nd time in 3 years, took Copa Diego Maradona. Then Sebastian Battaglia was a triumphant, but in the summer the Argentines slowed down sharply, starting the new draw of Liga weakly and losing to Corinthians in the Cope Libertadores. As a result, the young mentor was fired. A new coach has not yet been appointed, but Hugo Ibarra has a good chance of getting rid of the prefix "interim". His wards continue to fight in the cup, and in the championship, thanks to an 8-match unbeaten streak (and the last 5 meetings were won), they managed to break into the leading group. Now the main thing is not to lose the pace, the teams are standing tight in the table, and it is important not to misfire.

Huracan can be considered as a strong side. Now the wards of Frank Koudelka "shot" already in the championship. After 8th place in last year's draw and the same average results in the spring Copa Diego Maradona (18 points in 14 matches), the team is now among the leaders of the Liga. And they manage not to lose in 8 rounds in a row (equal draws and victories). True, three times in the last 4 matches everything ended 1-1, which is why the competitors began to bypass the unexpected contender for the title. But for now, the difference is minimal there, and there is still a chance to get around everyone, including Boca Juniors. This is only possible if you start winning again, and in confrontations with direct competitors.
The Genoese have not lost 9 head-to-heads in a row, including winning all 3 matches of 2020-2021 goals (2-0 or 3-0). But in March, Huracan managed to win in Buenos Aires thanks to a single goal from Coccaro. Bookmakers believe that Boca Juniors will win this important confrontation of contenders for the title. Let's agree – they are stronger and play at home, so they must "unhook" a competitor.
Prediction for the match: Boca Juniors to win.
