The hosts have picked up just one point and are down in 25th position after the first two matchdays, while the visitors are currently on three points and in 13th place.

After ending the first phase of the season unbeaten in their last three matches, Independiente have struggled to get going in the second round and are still in search of their first win.

It has been a tough time for the club off the pitch as well, as they continue to grapple with financial issues and are now heading into gameweek three without a recognised first-team manager in the dugout.

Carlos Teves, who took up the managerial role last August, announced that he was stepping down just hours before their goalless draw with Platense, and the club will now be overseen by youth coordinator Hugo Tocall until a suitable replacement can be found.

While the former Manchester United player maintained an above-average record during his tenure, including 14 wins, 11 draws and six losses in 31 matches, the side’s performances have tailed off in recent weeks, leaving the interim manager with much to do while in charge.

Independiente are now looking to end a four-game winless run at home, including three draws and a loss, and have only won two matches at Estadio Libertadores de America to date, beating Rosario Central and Argentinos Juniors in February and March respectively.

Meanwhile, Velez Sarsfield ended the first phase with a solid record but faced a setback early in the second round, losing their first game 3-1 away to Gimnasia La Plata.

However, they bounced back well in gameweek two, putting up a resilient performance to defend a one-goal advantage against Newell’s Old Boys for 70 minutes and secured their first win of the round.

Excluding playoff matches, Gustavo Quinteros’ side have won three of their last five away games, but they were beaten 2-1 by this opponent on their previous visit to this venue last season.

Independiente vs. Velez Sarsfield Head to head

In the previous 46 meetings between these two teams, they have claimed 14 victories each while drawing in 18. Independiente have scored 40 goals and conceded 48 in the process.

Independiente Team News

Independiente will be without four first-team players for this game due to injury, including Matias Gimenez (cruciate ligament tear), Ivan Marcone (metatrsal fracture) and Santiago Toloza (ankle).

Diego Segovia has been ruled out of action for the foreseeable future due to a torn muscle, which should see Rodrigo Rey continue to deputise in goal in his absence.

Velez Sarsfield Team News

Velez Sarsfield will have to cope without the services of forward Ricardo Centurion and midfielder Yeison Gordillo, both of whom are ruled out due to knee injuries.

Braian Romero opened his account in the second phase by scoring the winner against Newell’s last week and will continue to lead the line alongside Thiago Fernandez and Francisco Pizzini.
