An exclusive preview and prediction for the big match on June 25, 2022 has been compiled by the website’s expert department.

Boca Juniors hope to build on the success that was achieved in the spring
The Genoese were able to win the recently concluded Diego Maradona Trophy (a repeat of their 2020 success, by the way). It did not come out without problems, but, most importantly, the trophy went to Buenos Aires. The Argentines also picked up 10 points in the Copa Libertadores and even won their group. Now, we would like to consolidate these results in the Primera Division. Sebastian Battaglia’s charges have also made a good start to the league. On their field they managed to beat Arsenal (Sarandi) and Tigre, but on the road they were 0-1 with Central Cordoba. And with Barracas Central, the 1st half ended in a draw, and only after the break the newcomer got the upper hand.
Union (Santa Fe) have had rather mediocre results so far
Unionistas as a whole, with a 115-year history, have not given much reason to be proud of themselves. All their achievements could be reduced to a single vice-championship, which was taken in 1979. Last year, they managed to take a modest 12th place in the Primera, and in the Diego Maradona Trophy in the spring, the team were restricted to 17 points from 14 games. On the other hand, the Argentines managed to win their group in the Copa Sudamericana. There were hopes of carrying this level of play into the domestic arena. But in the Primera, it all started with a loss to Tigre, followed by a draw against Colon, and only in the 3rd round with a 2-1 away win over Barracas Central. This was followed by a painful slap in the form of a 1-5 home defeat to River Plate.
Boca Juniors generally have a head-to-head advantage against Union. That said, the Santa Fe-based club minimally beat the giants at home last year as part of the Diego Maradona Trophy, followed by a 1-1 home win as part of Primera.
Boca Juniors may not repeat the smashing that was done to Union by River Plate. But must beat the visitors from Santa Fe (odds 1.81).
