Velez to Win
Both teams enter this match with five points from the first five rounds of Copa de la Liga Profesional, so we should see a very close and interesting match.
That being said, our prediction is for Velez to win the match since we believe that they are the better team and that they will get in form soon, possibly right in this game.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
Four of the last five h2h meetings between Arsenal de Sarandi and Velez have gone under 2.5 total goals and we can see that being the case once again on Friday.
In addition to this, Velez averaged a mere 1.40 goals per game so far in Copa de la Liga Profesional. On the other hand, Arsenal averaged 3.00 goals per game, but since we expect Velez to win, we also expect them to impose their style of play.
Both Teams to Score – No
Both teams scored in just two of the last five head-to-head duels between Arsenal and Velez, so we can see this game ending with at least one team keeping a clean sheet.
After all, both teams scored in just one of the first five matches in the league played by Velez, although that did happen in four of the five Arsenal matches in Copa de la Liga Profesional this season.
Arsenal vs Velez preview: A very close and exciting duel
Although Arsenal is not doing as poorly as they did last season, they didn’t have the best of starts to the new Copa de la Liga Profesional either. After five rounds in the competition, Arsenal has five points and they don’t seem like a team that can fight for a high finish or a spot in the playoffs.
Many pundits considered Velez to be one of the top favourites in Copa de la Liga Profesional, but the team from Sarsfield failed to deliver on those expectations, at least for now. Velez currently has five points from the first five games this season and they will have to do much better if they want to have a hope of getting into the playoffs.
