Competition: Copa Libertadores

Market: Both teams to score – No

Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport

With a spot in the quarter-final of this season’s Copa Libertadores still hanging in the balance, Boca Juniors will host Corinthians in the early hours of Wednesday.

Starting with the hosts, while Boca Juniors might have managed to snatch a 0-0 stalemate in their first-leg meeting on foreign soil last week, the South American giants are in the midst of a worrying run of form. Really failing to pick up any kind of momentum last time out as they were hit with a dreadful 3-0 drumming against Banfield on home soil, there really is growing pressure on Sebastián Battaglia’s shoulders. Although the Blues might have enjoyed a real romp earlier in the year, they have largely come crashing back down to earth. Including a 2-1 loss at home against Union Santa Fe on June 24th, Boca are without a win in any of their last three matchups across all formats. Already someway off mounting any kind of title charge this season, Wednesday’s hosts have also suffered back-to-back home defeats for the first time since November 2020.

As for the visitors, while many might have tipped Corinthians as a standout pick to extend on their Copa Libertadores adventure, they are also coming off the back of a nightmare display. Watching their six-match unbeaten run come to an abrupt end last weekend as they were hit with a 4-0 drumming against Fluminese on the road, Head Coach Vítor Pereira will be desperate for his side to find an immediate response on Wednesday. While the Whites might have came crashing back down to earth, the Brazilian outfit have largely impressed many since appointing the former Fenerbahçe boss. However, it should be highlighted, with Corinthians remarkably managing to bag just a single strike from any of their last five Copa Libertadores contests on foreign soil, we’re backing another cagey affair here.

Bet: Both teams *not* to score at Boca Juniors vs Corinthians 4/6 for Wednesday’s Copa Libertadores showdown @ 888sport
