Velez Sarsfield wasted a big opportunity to approach league leaders last time out, when drawing at newly-promoted side Central Cordoba 0-0 in an entertaining match. However, Gabriel Heinze’s men are performing a remarkable campaign with 21 points (four behind Argentinos Juniors and Lanus) after four games unbeaten (two wins and two draws). Velez registered three wins and two draws at their own stadium, only losing to Defensa y Justicia.
Boca Juniors returned to winning ways after two league defeats in a row last Sunday, when beating Sarandi Arsenal 5-1 at home. It was an even game in general terms, but they were effective up front to claim three points. El Xeneize are now on 24 points, sitting in fourth spot of the Superliga table. Boca hold the second best away record, collecting 13 points from 18 on offer.
Boca is coming from scoring 5 and will face a team that also has a solid attack, so I have to go for the OVER with this low line.
