Velez Sarsfield vs Argentinos Juniors
Date: Monday, 2 March 2020
Kick-Off at 00:50 UK
Venue: Estadio Jose Amalfitani, Buenos Aires
Convincing victory against Arsenal Sarandi last weekend has pushed Velez Sarsfield into the top 4 race once again. There is no doubt this team will need two victories in the remaining two rounds of Argentine Superliga to make that happen.
The first stop is home fixture against Argentinos Juniors, a team which is also going to be very motivated to perform well.
We were slightly surprising with low 1.75 odds on home victory here. Visitors have achieved better results throughout this season than Velez, while also being undefeated in the last five outings.

Velez Sarsfield vs Argentinos Juniors Prediction
Velez Sarsfield have the second best defense in the league which conceded only 13 goals in 20 games. They will need a lot of leg work done by their offense in this duel though. The most recent form and results are not encouraging. Team has won only one out of the last four outings, including two draws and defeat to San Lorenzo on the road. Home record is looking solid at four wins, four draws and one defeat.
Argentinos Juniors are sitting in high 3rd position and will need at least one point from this match to stay up there. It is a little bit shocking to see there were only 11 goals scored in their 10 away days. We are not expecting a lot of action here either, so going for Under 1.5 goals FT does feel like good value at 2.50.
Velez have been far from brilliant when it comes to attacking, so draw as full time result is going to be our secondary recommendation.
