Boca Juniors vs Racing Club prediction, preview, team news and more | Argentine Primera Division 2021

Boca Juniors host Racing Club at La Bombonera Stadium in search of their third win on the bounce in the Argentine Primera Division.

The visitors, meanwhile, will be looking to immediately return to winning ways after playing out a goalless draw against Central Cordoba.

Boca Juniors made it two wins from two games last Thursday when they claimed a 3-1 win at Platense.

With the scores level heading into the break, Diego Gonzalez and Cristian Pavon scored in the second half to condemn Platense to their fourth defeat of the season.

This followed a 1-0 win over Patronato de Paraná on home turf last Sunday. With 10 wins from eight games, Boca Juniors are currently 11th in the Primera Division table, level on points with Gudoy Cruz and Gimnasia y Esgrima.

Meanwhile, Racing Club’s charge to the top of the table experienced a slight halt as they were held to an uneventful goalless draw against Central Cordoba.

Despite seeing over 65% ball possession, Claudio Ubeda’s side were guilty of a lethargic display at the attacking end of the pitch, as they managed just two shots on target from 17 attempts.

Prior to that, Racing Club were on a two-game winning streak, beating Newell’s Old Boys and Arsenal de Sarandí.

They have picked up 15 points so far and are currently in fourth place, one point behind league leaders Estudiantes.

Boca Juniors vs Racing Club Head-To-Head
