Head to Head
Boca Juniors and Santos are level at 2-2 in their five previous matches. They drew 0-0 in their last match which was the 1st leg of this tie.
Santos come into this second leg fixture knowing that they need a win, but will need to guard against conceding an away goal.
They qualified for the semi-finals of the Copa Libertadores by beating Gremio in the quarters.
Santos are unbeaten in their last three matches in all competitions. After beating Gremio 4-1 in the Copa Libertadores, they suffered a 1-0 loss at Vasco da Gama.
They then drew 1-1 against Ceara at home before a 0-0 draw against Boca Juniors in the first leg of the Copa Libertadores semi-final.
Santos managed to build some confidence ahead of the second leg with a 1-0 win at Sao Paulo in their last match. Jobson Santos scored the winner just after the half time break.
Santos Injuries & Team News
Santos have avoided any major injury scares in the lead up to the second leg. Lucas Braga was the only player to start both against Boca Juniors and at the weekend.
The hosts are expected to start with a very similar side to the first leg after resting so many players.
Boca Juniors Form
Boca Juniors reached the semi-final of the Copa Libertadores after beating Racing Club over two legs. They go into the second leg of their semi-final against Santos with the tie evenly balanced.
Boca have drawn their last three matches and are unbeaten in their last six. Since beating Racing Club in the Copa Libertadores quarter-final, Boca Juniors have beaten Huracan 3-0, drawn 2-2 with River Plate and 0-0 against Santos. All those were home matches.
In their last match, Boca Juniors could once again only get a point in a 2-2 draw at Argentinos Juniors. Mauro Zarate and Ramos Avila were the goal scorers on the day.
Boca Juniors Injuries & Team News
Boca Juniors should go into this match with the same lineup that faced Santos in the first leg. There are no injury concerns to the first team.
At the weekend Boca Juniors rested close to the entire team that faced Santos. Only Eduardo Salvio started both matches.
