Atletico Tucuman vs Boca Juniors prediction and betting tips - May 13, 2024

Tournament: Argentine Primera Division
Location: Estadio Monumental Jose Fierro
Match date: 13.05.2024

In the first round of the Argentine Primera Division on May 13, 2024, there will be a match between Atletico Tucuman and Boca Juniors. The visitors are a historical powerhouse in local and South American football and are keen on starting the championship with a victory against a mid-table team.

Key statistics and trends:

  • Atletico Tucuman last defeated Boca Juniors at home in 2009.
  • Boca Juniors have scored at least once in their last 6 matches.
  • Atletico Tucuman wins the first half in 25% of their matches, while Boca Juniors do so in 32% of their matches.

Analysis of Atletico Tucuman's form: They need to pick up momentum after spring setbacks.

"Decano" is not considered a top-tier project. Apart from reaching the final of the Argentine Cup (and losing there), there's not much else remarkable. Last season, they dropped from fifth place to eleventh in the Primera Division. In the spring Trofeo Diego Maradona, they only earned 10 points in 14 matches — only Independiente Rivadavia did worse in their group. They've had 4 weeks to work on their mistakes, so it remains to be seen how they'll perform.

Analysis of Boca Juniors' form: They haven't managed to return to top form.

After winning the championship in 2022, "Xeneizes" slipped to seventh place in the previous Primera Division season. Their performance hasn't improved much in the new season either. They earned only 25 points in the group stage and made it to the playoffs as fourth in their group. However, they lost in the semifinals on penalties to Estudiantes. They also started in the Copa Sudamericana, where their performances haven't been exceptional. They had a draw against Nacional Potosi, a win against Sportivo Trinidense, but a 2-4 loss to Fortaleza. Their match in Paraguay ended with a 2-1 victory, but it wasn't without its challenges.
