Storylines

Santos: A 1-0 win away at Sao Paulo was ideal preparation for the Brazilians coming into this one as they need to score but also ensure that Boca do not to qualify for the final.

Boca: The mission is simple for Boca: win in Brazil. Like River, they are away after missing their chance to take advantage at home in the opener, but they are much better off than their fierce rivals in terms of the score.

Six matches unbeaten across all competitions is good going and Boca have kept three clean sheets to Santos’ two in that time. However, Boca’s only Libertadores loss this edition came away — even if Santos’ only defeat came at home.

Prediction

Boca to edge this one and reach their 12th final for a shot at a record-equalling seventh title with Independiente. Pick: Santos 1-2 Boca.
