Velez Sarsfield vs Platense
Argentina – Liga Profesional
Date: Sunday, 12 June 2022
Kick-off at 22:00 UK / 23:00 CET
Venue: Estadio José Amalfitani.
Velez Sarsfield is set to host Platense in the second round of Liga Profesional. They will be battling it out this Sunday at Estadio José Amalfitani.
Platense has 3 points added to their name from their opening game in Liga Profesional and they now sit at the 7th position. The visitors had a tiring 12-game winless run across all competitions and it was finally broken in their previous fixture held here.
The visitors will go into the clash following a 2-1 Superliga win against Godoy Cruz in their last outing. They have been scored against in all of their last 6 matches, conceding 10 goals in all. In defense, Platense have clearly had some problems and they need some improvement.
On the other hand, Velez Sarsfield is at the 9th spot with a point in hand from their opening fixture in this competition. The hosts have been impressive lately with the side unbeaten in the last 7 games across various venues. They have also not failed to score in any of their last 10 games coming here.
Velez Sarsfield will play in this fixture after a 1-1 Liga Profesional draw against Patronato. They have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 4 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 5 goals in the process.

- Velez Sarsfield vs Platense Prediction
Momentum is really building for Velez Sarsfield as they have now gone 7 games without losing. They have won 5 of the last 7 games they have played maintaining 2 cleansheets on the run. The home side has also seen winning their last 3 home games in a row bagging 8 goals in total.
Meanwhile, Platense are on a dreadful run on road, not winning the last 12 away games in succession. But they have won the previous h2h game by 3-2 and that was not an away fixture for them.
It’s likely that the hosts will score today, as they have netted in the last 5 games coming into this one and have scored 10 goals in the last 5 games. Since the hosts are on a remarkable run as of now, we feel that they could win on Sunday.
