Velez Sarsfield vs. Estudiantes Match Analysis and Prediction

Velez Sarsfield will be looking for a point in their final group match at the Copa Libertadores to advance into the competition’s knockout stage when they host Estudiantes at Estadio Jose Amalfitani with kickoff at 2:15 am.

After they took just a single point in their first three matches, Velez Sarsfield regained some momentum by collecting four points in their last two group games and moving into a second-place with Braga.

The clubs will be forced to go for it against each other in the final game of the round-robin phase, as both sides are tied with 16 points.

Velez traditionally plays an open soccer style that leaves them vulnerable in transition, having conceded seven straight goals in all competitions.

The team may also be extra motivated by past experiences; they’ve made it into the knockout stage at this tournament every time they’ve qualified for this event since their first appearance in 2000.

The former four-time winners of Copa Libertadores, Estudiantes, have now made it to the knockout stage of this competition in five out of their last six appearances.

They may not always look eager to attack. Still, they seem to know exactly where to position themselves defensively, conceding just a single shot on target in their previous three group fixtures.
