Velez Sarsfield vs Godoy Cruz Prediction
Velez Sarsfield admitted what was only their fifth defeat of the season last week after San Lorenzo edged past them on the road with a narrow 1-0 scoreline. Despite registering twice as many shots on target as their foes in that clash, the hosts failed to get their names on the scoresheet, and subsequently made the trip back home empty-handed.
Nevertheless, the home team are currently placed eight on the ladder. They are also just two points shy of a qualification spot to the Copa Libertadores.
On the other hand, Godoy Cruz will be making the trip to Estadio Jose Amalfitani on the back of a 2-1 win over Huracan on the road. However, the visitors have been branded as the worst team in the cluster, and for good reason.
They have come out on top just four times this season, and are deservedly sitting at the bottom of the cluster, four points adrift of the team above them.
To make matters worse, the guests have been at the losing end in seven of their previous eight outings. In sharp contrast, the hosts have not stumbled at home since their 1-0 defeat to Defensa y Justicia, way back in late September.
As such, Godoy Cruz can rule out any hopes of salvaging even a point this week.
Furthermore, to be frank, the hosts have been a lot more comfortable scoring goals at home, than on the road. In fact, twelve of the eighteen goals that they have netted so far have come from their clashes on home soil.
Meanwhile, Godoy Cruz have been far too easy to breach in their outings. Miserably, they have conceded two goals or more in four of their previous five clashes away from home.
Taking into account that all but one of their last five h2h meetings here have also been high scoring affairs, count on over 2.5 goals on the scorecards this Friday as well.
