Boca Juniors form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team on their Superliga travels is 3 wins, 3 draws and 2 defeats.

The supporters enjoyed Boca Juniors's previous game versus Lanús (placed 4th), a Superliga 4-2 win played at home. As you can tell from the result, the match against Lanús was as crazy as a clown in a village circus. Great fun for the neutral supporter with 6 goals, will the fun continue today? Midfielder Edwin Cardona was the best performer of that match, with a rating of 8.45. Cardona signed up for two assists, hit five key passes, dribled past the opponent 1 of 1 times and had 23 successful passes (of 25 total).

It was a defeat before that one as the away game against River Plate wasn't a success with a 1-2 loss.

A new game in only four days for Juniors, the Superliga home match versus Godoy Cruz. Busy days.

The visiting Boca Juniors have scored more than one goal per away game in the league so far. The grand total is 9 goals from 8 games. It's worth mentioning that 5 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. They concede less than a goal on average per away game (7 so far). It's worth mentioning that 4 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.
