The Velez Sarsfield vs San Lorenzo match will take place on Sunday, December 15, 2013 (1:00 PM Pacific) at the José Amalfitani Stadium in Buenos Aires. Velez Sarsfield will host San Lorenzo in the last day of the Argentinian Torneo Inicial 2013, in a match that will play a vital role in defining the new Argentinian champion. San Lorenzo is the leader of the tournament with 32 points, while Velez stands in second place with 30. At the same time, in Rosario, Newell’s will host Lanús- both teams sharing the second place with Vélez, and with chances to win the tournament.
Vélez Sarsfield arrives to the match in a great mood, after winning three matches in a row, and they’ll look for the victory with enthusiasm. Their coach, Ricardo Gareca, has confirmed the starting lineup, a 4-4-2 with: Sebastián Sosa; Fabián Cubero, Fernando Tobio, Sebastián Domínguez, Emiliano Papa, Agustín Allione, Leandro Desábato, Lucas Romero, Federico Insúa, Lucas Pratto, and Ramiro Cáseres. Playing at home, they’ll get the support of their fans, who are expeciting the match with eagerness.
On the other hand, los cuervos (“the crows”) had missed a big opportunity to win the title in their last match, as they tied playing at home, 0-0 against Estudiantes de La Plata. Had they won that match, they would have also won the championship.
However, their players want to improve their last performance and they’ll do everything possible in order to bring great joy to their supporters; the coach Juan Antonio Pizzi said “we’re going to give everything we’ve got”. Although he didn’t confirm the lineup, it will probably be a 4-2-3-1 with: Sebastián Torrico, Julio Buffarini, Mauro Cetto, Santiago Gentiletti, Walter Kannemann, Juan Mercier, Néstor Ortigoza; Leandro Romagnoli, Ángel Correa, Ignacio Piatti; Alan Ruiz.
Velez Sarsfield vs San Lorenzo Prediction
I think both teams will do their best to win the championship, it will thus be an enjoyable match. Playing at home and with the need of a win, Vélez will look for a goal from the very beginning of the match, and they have Lucas Pratto, a great striker that could be decisive. Nevertheless, San Lorenzo have quick and young players like Ángel Correa that could be of vital importance in the counter attack. My prediction is an exciting, back-and-forth match, and a 2-2 tie.
