Argentinos Juniors hosts Velez Sarsfield in round 7 of the Argentinean Copa de La Liga Profesional. The match will be played on Tuesday, March 22nd at Estadio Diego Armando Maradona (Buenos Aires)
Argentinos Juniors sometimes make noise, but still they are not particularly quoted even at the national level. So last year’s 14th place in the final standings is not so surprising. Moreover, judging by the start of the new draw, you can expect something similar from Gabi Milito’s men again. Yes, they managed to beat Patronato and Newells Old Boys in the first two rounds. But after that, Argentinos Juniors gained victory only in the national cup. And the results in the championship noticeably worsened: two draws and two defeats. As a result, the Red Bugs are only in the middle of the standings of their group with eight points scored.

Velez Sarsfield was quite good in the times of Jose Luis Chilavert. With the charismatic goalkeeper-scorer, the Fort won all possible trophies in South America in the 90s, including the Copa Libertadores. And until 2013, the team managed to periodically win titles in the Argentinean Primera. But then Velez Sarsfield began to decline, and last year’s final place in the top five was a good achievement. There were hopes that Mauricio Pellegrino’s wards would be able to build on their success. But so far, the new season has been frankly unsuccessful for them. After beating Aldosivi in the first round, the Fort gained only one victory in the cup. And it earned only six points in six rounds of the championship. The reason is simple: the White-Blues can’t score. More precisely, they scored only one goal in the home match against Estudiantes, but it did not bring a victory, as the visitors equalized in the 88th minute.
Argentinos Juniors couldn’t beat Velez Sarsfield in seven head-to-head matches in a row. Moreover, the Fort was able to win the last three games with the same score of 2-0. It’s time for the Red Bugs to defeat their opponents. We bet that this time they will take three points from Velez Sarsfield.
