Boca Juniors entertain Always Ready at La Bombonera in the second group stage fixture of the Copa Libertadores on Tuesday.

The hosts suffered a 2-0 loss in their campaign opener against Deportivo Cali while the visiting side overcame Corinthians by the same margin on Wednesday.

Group E has been termed as the Group of Death in the competition this season and it certainly delivered in the opening match week, with the two giants given a reality check by the other two sides.

The hosts were held to a goalless draw by Velez Sarsfield in their previous league outing while Always Ready secured a convincing 6-2 win over Universitario di Vinto in their previous league fixture.

Boca Juniors vs Always Ready Prediction

Both sides have scored 11 goals in their league games this season but the visiting side have enjoyed a better run of form recently. The hosts have some notable absentees for this game which might prevent them from securing a win here.

We expect the Bolivian side to eke out a narrow win in their trip to Argentina.

Prediction: Boca Juniors 1-2 Always Ready
