Boca Juniors won’t head into this in mediocre form. The Juniors show 3 draws, a loss, and a win. A couple of draws were in Copa Libertadores matches. One of the draws happened versus Atletico Mineiro MG on July 13.

However, Atletico Mineiro may have played it safe in that match. The first of a 2-match aggregate, Atletico Mineiro controlled possession 56% to 44%. Boca took more shots, 11, but had just 4 shots on goal. Mineiro took 6 shots and made 2 on goal.

On their pitch, Atletico Mineiro should play much better. The home team in this is also in scintillating form. Mineiro has won 4-of-5 with the lone blemish being the draw with Boca Juniors. Give Atletico Mineior the nod. 

Soccer Pick: Atletico Mineiro 

Sao Paulo FC SP +165 Vs Racing Club Avellaneda +165

  • When: Tuesday, July 20

Oddsmakers had a difficult time discerning which squad should offer favorite’s odds in this. After looking at each teams’ form, it is difficult to determine which squad will win on the moneyline. 

Sao Paulo and Racing Club Avellaneda show similar form. The Racing Club has a couple of victories, a loss, and 2 draws in their last 5. 

The road squad in this shows 2 wins, a draw, and 2 losses. Before writing off Sao Paulo, though, realize that both losses were to Brazilian Serie A squads. Red Bull Bragantino beat Sao Paulo 2-1 on July 4. Fortaleza beat Sao Paulo 1-0 on July 17. 

Teams in Brazilian Serie A like Sao Paulo are often better than teams from the Argentinian League like Racing Club Avellaneda. But even that could be the case in this, Racing Club managed to force a 1-1 draw in the first match.

There’s nothing in either teams form that says the two participants don’t draw in the second aggregate. Racing Club controlled possession with 59% in the last match. They will likely try to control possession on Tuesday, force a 0-0 draw, and win on the away goal aggregate rules.  

Soccer Pick: Draw
