The big Copa Libertadores quarter-final between Vélez Sarsfield and Talleres kicks off on Thursday.
It’s been seldom in recent games that Vélez Sarsfield have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Vélez Sarsfield have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 8 goals along the way. Putting that to one side, time will tell if the trend might be maintained in this upcoming match or not.
Over the course of 6 of the past six games involving Talleres, a comparatively low number of goals have gone in between them and their opponents. The overall average goals scored per game in that period comes to a mere 1.67, with the average goals for La T equalling 0.83.
Here is a game where Talleres will have their work cut out to find the net against this Vélez Sarsfield side who we reckon should just have the edge. We’re going for a 1-0 advantage for Vélez Sarsfield at the end of the 90 minutes.
