The Barcelona vs Boca Juniors Copa Libertadores 2013 match will be this Wednesday, February 27, 2013 (5:45 PM EDT) at the Estadio Monumental in Ecuador. Barcelona (ECU) and Boca Juniors (ARG) will play their second game during the group stages of the Copa Libertadores 2013. They are part of Group 1 which also includes Toluca (MEX) and Nacional (URU); the top two teams will advance to the final-16.
Barcelona from Ecuador had a decent first game in which they tied Nacional from Uruguay in Montevideo 2-2. This is a team that went through many roster changes during the offseason after winning their country’s league title, but nonetheless they still have the depth to access the next round. They face a very difficult team like Boca Juniors, but if they take advantage of the home field, and Boca’s bad form, they could take the three points.
Boca Juniors is undergoing a small slump in their form. Just last week they were defeated at home by Toluca. On Wednesday they have the pressure to win or at least take a point because otherwise they could be facing a bad reality. Another loss would indicate that Boca will not get out of one of the hardest groups in this Copa Libertadores 2013.
Barcelona vs Boca Juniors Prediction
Barcelona and Boca Juniors will play an important and difficult match which will serve as a parameter to understand where they are going in this tournament. Although Boca is the stronger team, Barcelona has enough talent and the home advantage to dominate the game. The Barcelona vs Boca Juniors match will end in a 1-1 tie.
