It looks like club legend Sebastián Battaglia was indeed the right man to steady the Genoese ship, and Boca now sit in sixth place, five points behind their arch-rivals having been winless and all the way down in 24th in mid-August.

It's been seven years since Los Millonarios last tasted league glory, and though it's Taleres who currently occupy top spot, there would be uproar if River Plate weren't able to fully capitalize on those dreadful results that marred the beginning of Boca's season.

Braian Romero and Julián Álvarez have been banging in goals for fun for River, while Luis Vázquez is Boca's top marksman with just two, so this should be a good day for the home fans. However, there's nothing like a local derby to flip the tables.
