These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Velez and Estudiantes to Draw
Estudiantes is the only team that managed to win all four games so far in Copa de la Liga Profesional, so they are obviously in great form. Meanwhile, Velez started the new season with just four points from the first four rounds.
So, we feel that Estudiantes is closer to winning the game, but Velez is one of the best teams in Argentina and they are hosting this match, so a draw sounds like a reasonable outcome.
Velez and Estudiantes to Draw at Half Time
Since we can see this game ending in a draw, we also expect Velez and Estudiantes to draw at half time. After all, teams are usually tied at half time in matches that end without a winner.
In addition to this, Velez drew at half time in three of their first four games in Copa de la Liga Profesional this season, which is also true for Estudiantes.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Both teams scored in three of the last five head-to-head duels between Velez and Estudiantes, so we can see that happening once again in their upcoming match.
That being said, we did not see both teams score in any of the first four games played by Velez this season, but both teams scored in all four matches played by Estudiantes in Copa de la Liga Profesional so far.
Velez vs Estudiantes preview: The derby of the round
Just like their next opponent, Velez also won their match in the first round of the new Copa de la Liga Profesional season, but then they only managed to get two points from the next three games. Anyway, Velez is still one of the favourites to make it to the playoffs despite this bad start. The team has a clean bill of health right now, but Matias de los Santos will have to sit out the next match to serve a suspension.
After they finished sixth in the aggregate standings in the last season of Primera Division, Estudiantes has high ambitions for the new season. The team started Copa de la Liga Profesional accordingly, with four wins in the first four rounds and they are the only team to have all wins right now. Estudiantes has no injuries to speak of right now either.
