Boca Juniors take on the visitors Union de Santa Fe in the round 5 match of Argentinian Liga Profesional. The match will be played on Saturday, June 25th at Estadio Alberto J. Armando (Buenos Aires).
Boca Juniors hopes to build on success made in the spring. The Genoese were able to win the recent Copa Diego Maradona (by the way, this is a repeat of the success of 2020). The road was bumpy, but, most importantly, the trophy went to Buenos Aires. In addition, the Argentines collected 10 points in the Copa Libertadores, and won their group. Now they want to consolidate these results within the Liga. There, the wards of Sebastian Battaglia also started the championship very well. At home, Boca managed to win against Arsenal (Sarandi) and Tigre, but on the road it was 0-1 against Central Cordoba. Yes, and with Barracas Central, the 1st half ended in a draw, and only after the break the newcomer gave up.

Union de Santa Fe are showing rather mediocre results so far. "Unionistas" as a whole, with a 115-year history, did not give special reasons to somehow be proud of themselves. All achievements come down to a single vice-championship, and even that was taken in 1979. Last year, they took a modest 12th place in the Liga, in Copa Diego Maradona in the spring, the team limited itself to 17 points in 14 fights. On the other hand, the Argentines were able to win their group in the Copa Sudamericana. There were hopes that it would be possible to show the same level in the domestic arena. In the Liga it all started with the defeat of Tigre, followed by a draw with Colon, and only in the 3rd round with a score of 2-1 they managed to defeat Barracas Central on the road. This was followed by a painful slap in the face in the form of a home 1-5 with River Plate.
Boca Juniors generally has the advantage in head-to-head matches against Union. But at the same time, last year the club from Santa Fe minimally defeated the grand at home as part of Copa Diego Maradona, after which it was home 1-1 in the Liga. Boca Juniors may not repeat the rout that was inflicted on Union River Plate. But still, the have to beat the visitors from Santa Fe.
Prediction for the match: Boca Juniors to win.
