Velez vs Argentinos Jrs
After two draws and one defeat in the Superliga in 2020, Velez Sarsfield returned to winning ways last time out, when they beat Sarandi Arsenal 4-0 away. El Fortin will certainly fight for a Copa Libertadores ticket, having collected 33 points with one league match in hand. Velez is unbeaten in their last five home matches in the league, winning two and drawing three. Velez Sarsfield centre back Lautaro Giannetti is at Gabriel Heinze’s disposal after serving his one-week suspension.
Argentinos Juniors registered a 1-1 home stalemate with Patronato. As a result, El Bicho managed a single win in their last seven Superliga matches (drawing five and losing one), but they remain to occupy one of the Copa Libertadores spots on 36 points. Two weeks ago, Argentinos won 2-0 at Atletico Tucuman to break a four-game away winless run in league action (two draws, two defeats). Argentinos Juniors centre back Carlos Quintana saw a red card against Patronato and is suspended, as well as Francis Mac Allister, who reached the yellow-card limit.
Velez is in good mood after advancing in Copa Sudamericana and getting a big win against Arsenal last week, and they should be ready to beat this Argentinos that midweek was eliminated from the same competition, and will have some important starters not available.
