Velez Sarsfield vs Talleres
South America – CONMEBOL Libertadores
Date: Thursday, 4 August 2022
Kick-off at 01:30 UK/ 02:30 CET
Venue: Estadio José Amalfitani.
Both Sarsfield and Tallers have made it to the Quarter Final of the prestigious Libertadores and they will be determined to give their absolute best in order to make it to the final 4 of the competition.
However, one thing that needs to be said about either of these squads is that their recent performances in their domestic league have been atrocious. Both come from the Argentine top flight and as of now the pair are placed in the bottom-most tier of the league table.
Not only are Sarsfield on a long stretch of windless performances but they are letting in goals in huge numbers and they have seldom won in front of their home crowd as well.
Do also note that they are placed 25th in a table of 28, and they have managed to register a total of just one win all through the campaign so far.
Meanwhile Tallers are placed 26th in a table of 28 and their situation is not any different as well. They have delivered 2 wins in total and they are struggling to keep clean sheets too.
As these 2 teams take on each other in this tense and crucial encounter, expect a lot of mistakes and plenty of goals as well.
