Boca Juniors won their last encounter 3-1 at Santos in July 2003.
Boca Juniors Form
Boca Juniors reached the semi-final of the Copa Libertadores after beating Racing Club over two legs. After losing the first leg 1-0 at Racing Club, Boca bounced back to win 2-0 at home.
The Argentine giants have since played two league matches. Following the win over Racing Club, Boca Juniors returned to league action with a convincing 3-0 win over Huracan.
In their last match Boca drew 2-2 at home to River Plate. Ramon Avila gave Boca Juniors the lead but Jorman Campuzano got himself sent off just before the hour mark.
River Plate then hit back with two quick-fire goals, but Sebastien Villa rescued a point with an 86th minute strike.
Boca Juniors Injuries & Team News
Boca Juniors will be looking to make a few changes to their side that drew 2-2 with River Plate.
Carlos Tevez and Franco Soldano are expected to return up front after appearing off the bench last time out.
Jorman Campuzano will start in midfield despite his red card in league football at the weekend. His suspension does not affect continental competition.
Santos qualified for the Copa Libertadores semi-final with victory over Gremio. The first leg was a tight affair with Santos managing to get a 1-1 result away from home.
In the second leg Santos blew Gremio off the park, winning 4-1 at home.
What will be particularly concerning for Santos going into this fixture is their away form. They have only managed one win in their last eight away matches.
After beating Gremio in the second leg, Santos lost 1-0 at Vasco da Gama before drawing 1-1 in their last match at home to Ceara.
Marinho gave Santos an early lead but Ceara equalised before the break. There were a number of opportunities in the second half but Santos failed to take any.
Santos Injuries & Team News
Santos have no new injury concerns of this clash.
Lucas Braga is expected to come in for Yeferson Soteldo in midfield after starting the last match at right-back. Madson dos Santos should return to right-back in that scenario.
