All Argentine clash in quarter final 3 of this year’s Copa Libertadores. Newell’s held Boca to a goalless draw and La Bombonera to hold the advantage in this second leg.

Boca Juniors are one of the powerhouses of Argentina and indeed South American football. With 30 league titles to their name, as well as 6 Copa Libertadores and 3 Intercontinental titles too. Boca were beaten finalists in last year’s edition, going down in a fierce battle with Corinthians. This season has been a disaster on a league front with Boca currently 19th from 20 teams with 2 wins, 7 draws and 6 defeats. They are safe from relegation (for now) under the countries complex three season aggregates ruling. In Copa Libertadores they have 4 wins, 2 draws and 3 defeats so far. They had a relatively straight forward group but struggled to dominate Nacional, Toluca and Barcelona, scraping though by 1 point. In last 16 knockout they were drawn against last year’s winners Corinthians again and no one outside of Buenos Aires predicted a Boca victory. However La Bombonera was rocking and they prevailed at home 1-0. In Brazil they were then expected to capitulate but with a game plan and a solid performance they matched Corinthians. A goal from returning hero Juan Riquelme from about 40 yards summed up the performance and Boca prevailed. Legendary coach Carlos Bianchi is back for a third spell and the belief in the club and fans is so high they could do it, even without a side anywhere near what they are used to.


A home win was vital for Boca and they ultimately lacked the quality to nick a low scoring victory. Despite the red hot atmosphere and the fans playing their part they could not break down the defence of Newell’s. The tables will be turned now in Rosario and the home side will be big favourites to qualify. Newell’s have been several levels above all domestic opponents this season and with Boca in such poor form generally but especially away from home I see a home win here. Newell’s did beat Boca on Monday night 4-0 but that result should have little bearing on this match. We take Newell’s Old Boys to win the match at 1.85 (betsson)
