Velez Sarsfield to see off Barcelona to book last-eight spot

On Wednesday night, Ecuadorian team Barcelona host Argentinian outfit Velez Sarsfield in the second leg of the last-16 of the Copa Libertadores.

The first leg in Buenos Aires finished 1-0 to the visitors, so this tie is finely balanced.

Barcelona have endured mixed fortunes all around of late in all competitions, so the first leg defeat may not come as a major surprise. In fact, the defeat was part of a recent three-game winless run for the home side. They ended that run with a 3-0 win over Macara in the Liga Pro last time out.

Not only is their recent record in all competitions inconsistent, but Fabian Bustos’ team also has a mixed record in the Copa Libertadores, as they have won just one of their last four games in the competition. The home team has struggled for goals of late in the competition, failing to score in three of their last four matches in the Copa Libertadores.

One positive for Barcelona is that they have won their last three home games in the Copa Libertadores.

Last time out Velez Sarsfield kicked off the new Argentinian top-flight campaign with a 0-0 draw against Racing Club.

The result means the visitors are unbeaten in nine matches over 90 minutes, having recorded six wins. Their recent defensive displays have proven key to their good form, as they have kept three straight clean sheets.

Unlike the home team, Velez’s recent results in the Copa Libertadores have been good, as they are unbeaten in five games in the competition, having recorded four wins in the process.

The visitors have struggled for away wins in this competition of late, winning just once in their last four matches on their travels.

Forebet predicts that Velez Sarsfield will record a victory in a low-scoring encounter to book their place in the last eight of the Copa Libertadores.
