Superliga Picks Belgrano vs. Boca Juniors
Boca Juniors play away on Sunday against second-to-last in the league Belgrano. The Azul y Oro are clear favourites in this match. Indeed, they have won five of their last six Superliga matches and have the fourth record in the league. Additionally, they post the second best defence in the league: only 11 goals conceded in 16 matches. Their attack has been a bit less noticeable in terms of statistics. However, lately they have shown a clear improvement as they scored 6 goals in their last two games. They don’t necessarily have one target man to aim for on offence. As a matter of fact, the Xeneizes have four leading scorers: Pavon, Tevez, Zarate and Cardona all scored three goals. However, it is that depth that makes Boca so dangerous: goals can come from any player.
Belgrano are a struggling team this season. Indeed, they have only won two games this season, the last on November the 2nd. They consequently have the 25th record in the league. Their problems are mostly on offence: El Pirata have bagged only ten goals. Moreover, only five players have been on the scoreline this season. However, El Celeste isn’t as bad as their ranking could suggest. Indeed, their defence (18 goals conceded) ranks at a respectable eleventh in the league. All in all though, Lucas Bernardi’s team is not as competitive as its opponents of the day.
Superliga Schedule Boca Juniors vs. Belgrano
Boca Juniors have a better team structure and better players than Belgrano. The Azul y Oro should have a fairly easy game. Additionally, El Pirata’s offensive struggles could be even clearer as they face an opponent which should outclass them. Therefore, in my opinion, Carlos Tevez and Boca Juniors should win an easy 3-0.
PICK: Belgrano 0-3 Boca Juniors
