Santos vs Boca Juniors betting picks (Tuesday, May 11)
Caliente see Boca Juniors as the firm favorites in this match, considering are the better side in head-to-head games, managing three wins so far in five matches. The Argentine club will enter this game after two poor performances, both in the Copa Libertadores and the Copa De La Liga Profesional. They lost to Barcelona SC and Patronato, 1-0 on both occasions. This will be the perfect chance for them to heal, especially knowing that Santos have not managed two successive triumphs in all competitions since March.
