Head to Head
Velez Sarsfield lead 18-14 in their 43 previous matches against Lanus. Their last match saw Lanus win 1-0 away from home at the beginning of January 2021.
Lanus reached the Copa Sudamericana semi-final by beating Independiente in at the quarter-final stage. They are in the pound seat to reach the final after defeating Velez Sarsfield 1-0 away in the first leg of the semi final.
Before Lanus’ 1-0 away victory in the Copa Sudamericanca semi-final first leg, they drew 1-1 at Patronanto. That followed a 2-0 away defeat against Union.
In their last match Lanus won 2-0 at home against Rosario Central. Two first half goals by Franco Orozco and Jose Lopez was enough to secure the three points.
Lanus Injuries & Team News
Lanus rested their entire first choice team at the weekend against Rosario Central.
Jose Lopez will hope to have made enough of an impression with his goal at the weekend to push for a start. Lanus are, however, likely to go with the same lineup that beat Velez Sarsfield in the first leg.
Velez Sarsfield Form
Velez Sarsfield got through to the semi-final of the Copa Sudamericana with two leg win over Universidad Catolica. They are, however, up against it after losing 1-0 at home to Lanus in the first leg of the semi-final.
Sarsfield have won their last two league matches which were split by the first leg defeat. Miguel Brizuela gave them a 1-0 win at Newell’s Old Boys prior to the home defeat to Lanus in the Copa Sudamericana.
Over this past weekend, Velez Sarsfield pulled off a dramatic 3-2 home win over Godoy Cruz. Juan Lucero and Hernan de la Fuente scored first half goals to put Sarsfield 2-1 up at the break.
Godoy Cruz leveled matters but Agustin Mulet scored the winner with 25 minutes to play. There was a red card for each side as well with Cristan Tarragona being sent off for Velez Sarsfield.
Velez Sarsfield Injuries & Team News
Velez Sarsfield rested their entire team at the weekend in order to be fresh for this encounter.
Cristian Tarragona came off the bench against Godoy Cruz and saw red. He should however start as the suspension doesn’t carry over to continental football.
