The theoretical uncertainty on the Color Dipole predictions for the $\rho$ and $J/\Psi$ photoproduction in nucleus-nucleus collisions at Run 2 LHC energies is investigated. The results for rapidity distributions and total cross sections are presented. Moreover, the predictions are compared with the recent preliminary data from ALICE collaboration for the $\rho$ photoproduction in $PbPb$ collisions at central rapidities.
