Racing Club to Win
This is the most exciting match of matchday 13, in the last three meetings neither team has done each other any harm, as each match has ended in a nil-nil draw. Both teams continue to play the same way, focusing on protecting their goal and from there, trying to score. Unlike the last two h2h, this time Racing will be playing at home, we think this small advantage will help La academia conquer the three points.
Under 2.5 Goals
It would not be unusual to see a low-scoring match, as, in Racing’s last six matches, the final score has been less than 2.5 goals, and the same has happened in five of Boca Juniors’ last seven matches. The last six meetings between the two teams also ended with a result under 2.5 goals, in fact since 2018 there have been more than two goals in a Racing vs Boca Matchup.
BTTS – No
In recent seasons, both teams have proven to be specialists in keeping clean sheets, so we doubt there will be BTTS on this occasion. In none of the last six h2h, both teams have scored in the same match there have been three consecutive goalless draws.
A Duel Of Solid Defences
La Academia has achieved the defensive solidity that took them to the top of the group stages of the previous tournament, however, they have struggled in attack throughout the tournament, having gone eight consecutive games without defeat, but with five draws. After the victory of leader Atletico Tucuman, Racing must win if they are to be one of the title contenders.
In the previous match, El Xeneize returned to winning ways by defeating Platense 2-1. Boca had 56% ball possession and a total of 20 shots. The best player in the match was Oscar Romero, who scored both goals for the Blue and Gold teams. Despite the win, Hugo Ibarra’s team is in eleventh place and remains ten points behind the league leaders.
