Due to a mostly healthy squad, there’s only the lone fitness issue for the Vélez Sarsfield gaffer Alexander Medina to be concerned with. Lautaro Giannetti (Ruptured cruciate ligament) won’t be playing here.
We’ve got the feeling that Vélez Sarsfield will likely create enough chances to put a goal past this Racing Club lineup, although that probably shouldn’t be enough to avoid a loss.
Our selection here is for a very close game with a 2-1 advantage for Racing Club at the end of this one. Let’s wait and see how it plays out.
