Racing Club vs Velez Sarsfield
Argentina – Liga Profesional
Date: Friday, 17 June 2022
Kick-off at 1:30 UK / 2:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Juan Domingo Perón.

Racing Club is set to host Velez Sarsfield in the third round of Liga Profesional where both these sides are separated by 12 places and 2 points. They will be seen battling it out this Friday at Estadio Juan Domingo Perón.

Racing Club is at the 11th spot on the table with 3 points in hand after playing 2 matches. They won and lost a game each in this competition. The hosts had a gameweek to forget against Godoy Cruz losing 2-0 and going down to 10 men. It was an out of sorts performance from a side that have set high standards under Fernando Gago.

The hosts have started the Copa de la Superliga campaign with a 10-game unbeaten streak but their inconsistency across all competitions began to creep in at this point. This has continued into their start of Liga Profesional and they are now currently on a 2-game losing streak.

On the other hand, Velez Sarsfield is at the 24th spot with just a point in hand from the 2 games played in this competition. They drew and lost a game each in here and are yet to secure their first win in Liga Profesional. The visitors drew by 1-1 to Patronato before losing by 0-1 against Platense in the previous fixture.

Velez Sarsfield have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 6 goals in total. Prior to this competition, they won 4 out of the 5 matches in all competitions and will be expected to return to that level before long.

By the looks of things, expect a victory for the hosts this Friday.
