For the second round of the Professional League Cup, Vélez had a good match against Sarmiento in Junín and beat him 2-1 with goals from Lucas Janson and Thiago Almada. In injury time, Jonathan Torres scored for the venue.
In the first part, those led by Pellegrino stood better and take the initiative at all times. From a play from the side, Janson took a tremendous shot that got into Vicentini’s angle that he could do nothing to prevent the 1-0.
In the second half, Almada stretched differences at 62 minutes taking advantage of a counterattack that was lethal. At 94 minutes, Torres found the discount that put him a bit of uncertainty at the end of the match but the three points went to Liniers.
The next date Vélez will visit Argentinos Juniors at the Diego Armando Maradona, while Junín will play against Boca at La Bombonera.
