Barcelona SC vs Boca Juniors: Storylines
Barcelona de Guayaquil began their Copa Libertadores campaign on the right foot. Since their domestic triumph a few months ago, the Ecuadorian side has been eager to finally take part in this edition of the tournament, and it couldn't have started in a better way. After shocking Santos, they put four past The Strongest.
Meanwhile, Bustos' team is doing a good job in the local Serie A as well. After claiming a dramatic 2-1 win over Delfín, Barcelona stand second in the national competition standings. That victory may have also handed them a great boost before this exciting match.
However, Boca Juniors' form has been outstanding as well. In South America's contest, the Argentines have beaten The Strongest in Bolivia, overcoming the high altitude and the absence of key players, and also defeated Santos last week in La Bombonera. Besides, Russo's side secured a top-four finish in the local tournament following their win over Lanus. Will the Xeneizes continue with such good form in Guayaquil?
