Velez vs Boca Juniors
Through a remarkable performance, Velez Sarsfield did not find any difficulties to beat Lanus 2-0 at home and 4-1 on aggregate. Gabriel Heinze’s men have claimed four victories in their last five games (losing the other), including the last three – curiously against the same opponents. El Fortin also won their last three matches at Jose Amalfitani Stadium without even conceding.
Boca Juniors reached the Superliga Cup’s quarter-finals via an easy 3-1 home victory over Godoy Cruz last Sunday (5-2 on aggregate). On Thursday, they won 2-1 over Athletico Paranaense from Brazil, also at home, in a Copa Libertadores group game. Therefore, El Xeneize is on eight competitive encounters without defeat, having won five and drawn three in regular time.
Boca has one of the best squads in the league but Velez is a young team that is in great form and should be able to get something at home.
