BARCELONA VS BOCA JUNIORS PREVIEW & PREDICTION
On August 15, at 17:15, Camp Nou will be a gala venue. Barcelona, who has just won the Spanish Super Cup, will play a spectacular amateur with Boca Juniors.
The match counts for the Joan Gamper trophy, being a traditional friendly game at the beginning of the season for the two clubs. As an exception, last year Barca dueled in this prestigious friendly with the Chapecoense Brazilians, managing a win without a right to appeal to their fans.
A few days before the match, the odds are not yet displayed, but we are sure we will see the stars on both camps working. President Bocai wants to avoid a new episode “Riquelme” and has announced his blaugrana counterparts: “We come to play this pride, not for money. We do not want our players to be offered Barcelona before or after the game! ” That’s what happened with Juan Roman Riquelme the last decade, when he made a sensation in Barcelona at the friendly Bocai and was transferred by the Catalans two years later!
Boca Juniors has Zarate, Pavon and Abila.
Boca Juniors comes after a win with Tallares Cordoba, 1-0 (goal C. Pavon), but the players’ thought has stayed more at the match for over 3 days. We will definitely see goals in this match because both bands have a spectacular, speedy style focused on the offensive. Boca Juniors uses a 4-2-3-1 with a fearsome offensive quartet, while Barcelona has many recently transferred players who still want to say the blaugrana club. The game will be broadcast live by dozens of televisions all over the world and the game will be played with the guard down!
Boca Juniors has not received a goal in 4 of the last 5 games (friendly and official), but he meets an opponent in a totally different league. Anything but a minimum of 3 goals scored on the “Camp Nou” would be a huge surprise.
