Boca wants to reach the top

The ball rolled again in Argentine soccer. Four days of the first division tournament have already passed and the “xeneixe” is one of the favorites to win the title, at least that is what the sports predictions indicate.

Next Friday, the team that Sebastián Battaglia technically directs, will face neither more nor less than Unión de Santa Fe as local, in the mythical Bombonera.

Therefore, those in the blue and gold jersey will have an important sporting test to show that they are up to the task and that they can reap a new victory to remain on top of the standings or even be able to reach the highest of it.

This is how Boca Juniors arrives

This team began by showing that they want to fight for the title, by beating Arsenal de Sarandí 2 - 1 in their own stadium. Then it was his turn to lose as a visitor to Central Córdoba in Santiago del Estero, despite having shown good football passages and having generated several risky occasions.

After that aforementioned setback, Boca Juniors first recovered and reaped two more wins: it was a 5 - 3 against Tigre in La Bombonera and, last weekend, they won 3 - 1 over Barracas Central, as a visitor.

One thing to consider is that the de la Rivera team have exceeded the Professional Argentina forecasts and, beyond the fact that their offensive power was known in advance, today they have 10 goals in their favor and are the team that has converted the most so far in the championship

Therefore, this point stood out in his favor, encouraging the team's fans to continue celebrating the goals of their favorite footballers.

This is how Union arrives

The "tatengue" did not have the desired start and in fact, today, it is below Professional Argentina predictions.

With one win, one draw and two losses, Unión de Santa Fe is in the group of teams that go from 18th to 24th place along with Talleres de Córdoba, Vélez Sársfield, Tigre, Central Córdoba de Santiago del Estero, Patronato de Paraná and Rosario Center.

Beyond the results that have been given, what causes some concern is that the team could not display its best version against River Plate and ended up being beaten 5 to 1. Therefore, both internally in the squad as well the fans of the team, who want the next result to be favorable.

Background between both

These teams have met a total of 38 times in the framework of the first division tournaments of Argentine soccer.

Boca Juniors took a considerable advantage in the history, with 37 wins to their credit, while Unión de Santa Fe could barely keep the victory in 5 opportunities. The record is completed with 11 draws.

With these previous statistics, one can consider that "xeneixe" is the favorite in sports forecasts, but this is football, and when the ball starts rolling, these numbers will be left aside.

The magnifying glass on…

Exequiel Ceballos, the young footballer who emerged from the training divisions of the institution, who, based on very good performances, has been one of the most acclaimed by the “xeneixe” public.

The "changuito", who is only 20 years old, has shown personality, and above all, the level to play in the highest category of Argentine soccer. With his speed, his dribbles, the assists he distributes and also with his very good finishes, he has made it clear that in addition to becoming a reality, he also has a great future ahead of him.

Therefore, Boca Juniors fans are excited about his presence on the field of play, since they know that with his interventions this footballer is capable of changing the course of the match.

The magnifying glass on…

Striker Jonatan Álvez, who since his arrival at Unión has stood out based on goals and excites the supporters of the "tatengue".

This experienced 34-year-old soccer player has passed through the Boston River and the Danube of his native Uruguay. Also, he defended the jerseys of Liga de Quito and Barcelona of Ecuador, Junior of Barranquilla in Colombia, Inter de Porto Alegre of Brazil and Atlético Nacional of Colombia, among other teams from the continent. In addition, he had a brief experience at Vitória de Portugal.

In his extensive career, Álvez has scored 142 goals in 323 presentations, having a goal average of 0.44. Since he wore the Union shirt he has recorded 6 goals in 14 games, standing out for his very good start with 3 goals in 4 dates of the current tournament.

That is why, on Sunday, all eyes will be on this attacker who promises to generate risk and more than one headache for the rival defense.

Sports bets

People play their chips in sports betting and are already analyzing what moves to make for this match.

At the moment, the sports betting houses give Boca Juniors a clear favorite, since the victory of the "xeneixe" is quoted at 0.83, while that of Unión climbs to 3.5. Meanwhile, the tie is positioned at 2.5.

That is why if we want to make a difference, in addition to guessing which team will be the winner, we can also decide who will score the first goal, how the first half will end, what will be the exact result with which the match will end, if there will be expelled and how many.

All these alternatives are more difficult to hit, although of course, your pay will also be higher considering that the chances of hitting will be lower.

The truth is that, as we said, this is football, and once the ball starts rolling, absolutely anything can happen.
