Godoy Cruz had a couple of stumbles in recent weeks that hurt him at the top, but they are still fighting for the first place.
For its part, Boca Juniors has been undefeated for a long time but this Monday they tied at home and failed to reach the top, they know that they are very close and do not want to let it escape.

Why Bet on Godoy Cruz
Godoy Cruz has had a tournament with ups and downs, but with more ups than downs, however, it could only achieve 1 point out of the last 9, so it has not been able to climb to the top. At the moment they are in seventh place with 32 points, 6 less than the leader, Atlético Tucumán.
In their last match, they lost 3-1 to Barracas Central, while at home they tied with Tigre 1-1, two results that have not favored them and that coach Sergio Gómez hopes can be resolved this Friday against a direct rival since they are 4 points above them and if they are lost, they would be quite far away.
Why Bet on Boca Juniors
Boca Juniors is fully involved in the fight, however, it missed a great opportunity in La Bombonera against Huracán, drawing goalless and playing poorly. If they had beaten the Globo, they would be leaders, and they don’t want it to happen again, so it doesn’t matter if they play as a visitor, they must win.
In the last game, the team’s striker and scorer, Darío Benedetto, came out at halftime because he had a fever, but coach Hugo Ibarra hopes that he feels well so that he can be on the pitch on Friday since he has scored the team’s last two goals and that has meant two victories.
The Xeneize has 10 games undefeated with 7 wins but has shown that it has cost them a lot since none of these wins were by a difference of more than 2 goals.
