The guests, meanwhile, will strive to return to winning ways immediately after playing a goalless draw against Central Cordoba.
Boca Juniors achieved two wins in two games last Thursday when they won 3-1 at Platense.
With almost to the end of the break, Diego Gonzalez and Cristian Pavon scored in the second half condemning Platense to their fourth defeat of the season.
This followed a 1-0 win over Patronato de Paraná on the home turf last Sunday. With 10 wins from eight games, Boca Juniors are currently 11th in the Primera table, by points with Gudoy Cruz and Gimnasio y Esgrimi.
Meanwhile, the Racing Club strikers at the top of the table experienced a slight stalemate as they were held without a goalless draw against Central Cordoba.
Despite having a free kick in a decent position 65 minutes in, Claudija Ubede tried a variation that brought the ball through to the other end of the penalty area.
Prior to that, the Racing Club was in a string of two wins, beating Newell’s Old Boys and Arsenal de Sarandí.
So far, they have collected 15 points and are currently in fourth place, one point behind league leader Estudiantes.
