Velez Sarsfield vs River Plate Prediction 30 June 2022

Velez Sarsfield take on the visitors River Plate in the first leg of the round of last 16 match of Copa Libertadores. The match will be played on Thursday, June 29th at Estadio José Amalfitani (Buenos Aires).

Velez Sarsfield is not looking particularly consistent this season. They took 5th place in the Liga in 2021 - a very worthy result for the current state of this team. Against this background, in the new season, frankly, not everything that was planned turns out. In Copa Diego Maradona, Vassari's men failed to qualify for the playoffs, taking only 18 points and finishing 6th in their group. In the new Liga season, the ambitious team managed to win for the first time only in the 4th round. At the same time, they managed to show themselves well in the Copa Libertadores - they, together with other Argentines, Estudiantes, won in their quartet. Although the fight was tense for Velez Sarsfield, the advantage over Nacional turned out to be minimal in the end. The Uruguayans managed to take 7 points, “El Fortin” came out to collect 1 point more.

River Plate is not that impressive this season. Millonarios finally became the national champion last season. It's hard to believe, but the Buenos Aires grandee last taken gold in 2014. Of course, the fans believe that Marcelo Gallardo will lead his wards to new successes. But for now, there are enough misfires. In Copa Diego Maradona, having scored 29 points and finished 2nd in their group, River Plate managed to fly out in the first play-off round, losing to Tigre. In the Liga, the title holder started with 3 rounds without a win, and only then gave out 5-1 win over Union (Santa Fe). However, in the Copa Libertadores, the Argentines were good. They only lost points once and won the other 5 matches.

Recently, the parties have been alternating victories over each other. In 5 last fights, River Plate won three times, but at the same time lost 2 times between these successes. This is only the first leg, and it is unlikely that there will be a struggle for victory with all the might. We are not expecting too bright a game, so we will focus on "under 2.5 goals".

Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 scored goals.
