Velez Sarsfield vs River Plate Lineups, Match Preview, and Team Information

Velez Sarsfield

The host team had a tough time recently capturing only one win in their last seven games. They started Copa de la Liga Profesional with a win before losing to Independiente. The team has a positive recent record with River Plate. Santiago Caseres is not likely to feature in this game.

Probable lineup: Burian, Giannetti, E. Gomez, Garcia, V. Gomez, Gordillo, Mendez, Bou, Prestianni, Pizzini, Braian.

River Plate

The only worry for the River Plate fans is who will replace star striker Lucas Beltran who was sold to Fiorentina a few weeks ago. Miguel Borja was brought in, but it remains to be seen how effective he will become. Rodrigo Aliendro, Leandro Gonzalez Pirez, Paulo Diaz, Tomas Lecanda, and Elias Lopez are injured.

Probable lineup: Armani, Mori, Diaz, Mammana, Simon, de la Cruz, Perez, Lanzini, Barco, Solari, Miguel Borja.

Player to Watch: Pablo Solari

After River Plate sold its best scorer Lucas Beltran to Fiorentina recently, the highest-scoring player for the team right now is Pablo Solari. The 22-year-old wing player has scored five goals and delivered eight assists in 21 league matches, but he already produced some great displays in two Copa de la Liga Profesional matches getting on the scoresheet twice.

This is Solari's second season at River Plate after arriving from Colo Colo. Before the Chilean experience, he plied his trade in Talleres, but as none of the top Argentine clubs were interested in signing him, he decided to go the great Colo Colo where he scored 16 goals and had eleven assists in 71 matches. His form at River Plate is even better, he already accumulated a total of 18 goals alongside ten assists in 53 appearances.
