- Title : Boca Juniors vs Lanus - Argentinian Liga Profesional prediction
In a must-win game, Boca Juniors is hosting the surprisingly good Lanus
Boca Juniors have had a pretty disappointing season so far as they stand in 10th place on the table of the Argentina Liga Profesional.
The reigning champion is hosting Lanus this week coming off a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to the biggest rival River Plate last week. With that loss, Boca has a nine-point deficit compared to River Plate and has no more room for any mistakes.
A good sign for Boca’s fans is that they have won three of their last five league games but still, they have only two wins in six home games with only three goals scored.
Lanus on the other hand has been fantastic so far exceeding all expectations. The team is currently fourth in the standings with only four points less than the leading River Plate. Lanus has won 8 of 14 games so far in the season with four losses and two draws. Four of those wins have been on away matches.
Lanus is coming off a 2-1 win over Central Cordoba last week but has lost the previous two games against Arsenal Sarandi and Newells Old Boys.
- Boca Juniors have lost only three of their last 15 games
- Last time Boca Juniors lost a home game was in July against San Lorenzo
- Only one of the last ten games between Boca Juniors and Lanus has ended in a draw
- Four of the last five head-to-head games have seen at least three goals
Boca Juniors is facing a must-win game against Lanus if they want to keep any chances to defend the title. Lanus had a good start but the home team is way better and will prove that at “Estadio Alberto J. Armando”.
Agustin Obando, Juan Edgardo Ramirez, Marcos Rojo and Sebastian Villa Cano will miss the match against Lanus but manager Sebastian Battaglia has enough quality players for a routine win.
Player goals - José Sand score anytime (90 mins) And Team corners - Lanús Over 3.5
