Atletico Tucuman vs Velez Sarsfield
Argentina – Primera Division
Date: Friday, 23rd June 2017
Kick off at 01:30 UK/ 02:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Monumental Presidente Jose Fierro.
Is there an end to Atletico Tucuman’s crisis? The hosts are going through quite a turbulent period in the finish of the season since the owners decided to dismiss the head coach Pablo Lavallen after a series of horrendous performances in the last couple of weeks.
Velez Sarsfield will come into the game in much higher spirits after a phenomenal display in 5-1 thumping of Sarmiento at the weekend.
The lack of motivation in the finish of Primera Division season caused the horrendous run of four consecutive losses for Copa Libertadores outfit Atletico Tucuman.
The hosts have not been playing defense at all lately as they conceded as many as ten goals along the way.
This will be the music to the ears of Hugo-Mariano Pavone who has been red-hot lately.
The Argentine completed a hat-trick in the mentioned win over Sarmiento on Sunday taking his league tally to 13 goals so far in the season.
Velez thus have an amazing goal differential of 8-1 in last two league matches with Tigre and Sarmiento.
