Why you should back Boca Juniors
Boca figures to be focused on winning after having its streak of four straight appearances in the semifinals halted last year, when it lost to Atletico Mineiro in the Round of 16. Xeneizes also is anxious to join Atletico Independiente for most Copa Libertadores championships, as it hasn't added to its total since winning its sixth title in 2007. Dario Benedetto is the team's offensive leader as he has scored three of Boca Juniors' five goals in this year's competition.
One of the 32-year-old forward's goals came against Corinthians, as he converted in the 42nd minute on May 17 to erase a deficit and earn Boca a 1-1 draw. Benedetto is tied for second on the club in Primera Division goals with two in three matches. He is even with 26-year-old Colombian forward Sebastian Villa, who also has recorded three assists and produced three of Boca's six tallies in last year's Copa Libertadores.
Why you should back Corinthians
The club has scored only five goals in this year's Copa Libertadores, but three have come against Boca Juniors. Maycon netted both tallies in Time do Povo's 2-0 victory on Apr. 26 and midfielder Du Queiroz converted in a 1-1 draw on May 17. The team's other goal was recorded by forward Adson, who scored in the 19th minute against Always Ready on May 26, when Corinthians settled for a 1-1 draw.
The 21-year-old Adson is among Corinthians' leading scorers in the Brazilian Serie A with two goals while Du Queiroz is tied for second on the club with a pair of assists. Corinthians is hoping Roger Guedes finds his scoring touch on Tuesday as he has recorded a team-high four goals while adding an assist in Brazilian Serie A play. Gustavo Mantuan also is seeking his first goal of Copa Libertadores after registering three, along with an assist, in league action.
